All of us want to make our homes look spectacular. We deep-clean every single nook and cranny there is, buy expensive furniture and arrange it as perfectly as we can, and do everything in our power to make a house become our home. But if something still doesn’t feel right, it may not be due to our furniture, or anything on the house at all. Sometimes, the issue has to do with our interior lighting. If a light is too bright, or too dim, it can have an extremely negative impact on the experience of our home. This blog will help you choose the right lighting for your home.
One of the most important attributes to any room has to do with the brightness of the lights inside of it. When we think about our past experiences, it is easy to see how the brightness of indoor lighting has an impact on our moods and perception. Think about going to the grocery store- the entire store’s interior lighting is very bright, helping to show off their produce and keep the environment alert and energetic. Now, consider an intimate dinner, in a restaurant where there are candles in the light fixtures. The brightness has a considerable impact on how we perceive any experience, and there is no clear-cut answer. A lighting store will be able to help you choose an appropriate brightness for your interior lighting, or, you can purchase a light dimmer that will allow you to enjoy a dynamic range of light brightness.
While lights come in every color imaginable, light color typically refers more to a spectrum of shades of natural light, from a candle’s light to the blaring white light that is characteristic of hospitals. Much like the brightness, the color of the light has a large impact on mood and our experiences of the room. Choosing the right color for your home lighting is very important- installing a pure white light in your bedroom may not be the best for you, since it may keep you more alert during the nighttime. This is just one possible application of how light color may impact your home.
Interior lighting is extremely important to our day-to-day lives, and according to the US Department of Energy, up to 10% of the average American budget is spent on lighting. With that in mind, it might be best to let the professionals help us.
