What Can Home Lighting Do For You?

You can have the nicest home in the world, but if it’s not lit well, it doesn’t count for a thing. Home lighting is what makes a good design great, and a great design exceptional. Let’s take a look at how you can use home lighting to make your home look better!

Install Accent Lights

First things first, you can install accent lights that highlight certain things, and leave others in the (relative) dark. Let’s take a kitchen as an example. You can use accent lighting to focus down on the worktop, so that you can more easily see what you’re doing. Alternatively, you could have the accent lighting pointing up and away from the worktop, so that light doesn’t bounce off your marble worktop and blind you as you’re trying to walk around! What we’re trying to say is that the choice is yours, because accent lighting is both versatile and useful.

Accent lighting is also a great choice for outside, either the front or back yard. You can use it in the back yard to create an ambience: to highlight certain parts of your garden, for example, or to dimly light a small and cozy living space outside. In the front yard, you can cast accent lighting up from the ground against the walls of your house, to make it look mighty and impressive—that’s curb appeal for you!

Lighting For a Home Cinema

If you’re thinking of getting a home cinema, the TV itself is only half of the story! You also have to think of the lighting you need to make your home cinema, well, a home cinema.

Good lighting in a home cinema doesn’t blind you: it’s muted and dim, like a real cinema. There are a few options you can go for, including down-lights and strip lighting that aren’t intrusive, but add to the experience. We make home cinemas from scratch, including lighting, sound, and setup.

So, we’re not just home lighting Colorado Springs CO experts. We work on home cinemas too!

Replace Old Fluorescent Lighting

One major bugbear that people call out home lighting Colorado Springs CO experts for is fluorescent lighting.

Let’s face it: nobody likes it. Either at home or at work, it’s too bright, and can give you a headache. So why not get rid of your headache, and replace it with some nice modern lighting solutions instead? You can pick between incandescent or LED for kitchens, for example, both of which are much easier on the eye than fluorescent. They’re also both easier to manage, because if a bulb blows, you just replace it. If only fluorescent lighting were that easy to replace!

Replace Your Electrical Panel Too!

If you’re planning on a complete redesign of your lighting, this can necessitate more wiring, and the need for more power. If your house is of a certain age, then the odds are that it has an electrical panel that’s not up to standard.

Back in the day, people didn’t need that much power. They would have had a fridge, maybe a radio and some lights—and that was it. But today, we have far more white goods, big-screen TVs, more lighting, more outlets… More everything! That means you need more power.

In the early part of the last century, for example, households only needed 30 amp fuse panels, which were the norm. Today, a bigger house that needs to meet the needs of a family might need a 200 amp one instead, purely because of the number of gadgets and equipment we use today. So while you’re getting your lighting upgraded, it might be best to upgrade your electrical panel too.
