What Is Your Lighting Installation Capable Of?
Are You Making the Most of Your Home Lighting?
When it comes to making home upgrades, lighting sometimes takes a backseat to aspects like paint, furniture, or appliances. That being said, the correct lighting installation can make a world of difference in your living space.
Lights serve the practical purpose of illuminating your home but also have the power to set the mood, level up your aesthetics, and improve functionality. Keep reading, and we'll discuss the many possibilities of lighting automation. We think you'll find it will transform your Ottawa, ON, space into something extraordinary!
Build the Right Mood with Different Lighting Types
Lighting is a versatile tool that can help you set the mood in any room. Here are some ways you can use various lighting types to create ambiance:
This focused, directional lighting helps you perform specific tasks, such as reading or cooking. Under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen and reading lamps by your bed’s headboard are great examples!
Use accent lighting to highlight the features you love, such as artwork, architectural elements, or decorative objects. Wall-mounted and track lights work wonders.
Ambient or general lighting provides the main source of light in any room. Chandeliers, pendant lights, and recessed lighting fixtures are excellent choices to achieve this.
For a cozy and inviting atmosphere, consider dimmable lights or LED strips that allow you to adjust the brightness and colour temperature to suit however you're feeling.
Improve Functionality and Efficiency
Lighting makes your home more functional and efficient. For instance, consider investing in a smart lighting system that allows you to manage your lights through your smartphone or via voice commands, enhancing your convenience immensely. Plus, if your lights are smart, they can be automated, too—meaning you can program them to turn on and off on a schedule.
Believe it or not, there’s more. By making certain lights in your home motion-activated, you’ll never have to chastise someone for leaving the lights on ever again—they’ll simply turn off once no more motion is detected. This not only saves you a headache but also positively impacts your energy bill, leading you into a greener future.
Don't forget about the exterior of your home! Outdoor lighting can enhance curb appeal, increase security, and extend your living space into the outdoors. Pathway lighting, for example, can illuminate walkways and driveways for safety and aesthetics. Path and deck lighting ensures gatherings and parties can extend long into the night with whatever ambiance suits the gathering best. They’re useful for security, too—motion-activated outdoor lights can scare off potential intruders or trespassers.
