Economic Luxury – Tips For Brightening Your Home

Guest post by Hubert Dwight

LightingWhether you are walking down a bustling street or settling into a warm sofa, it’s hard to deny the profound effect lighting has on us, so it’s important to make sure you have the best of the best when decorating your dream home.

With that in mind, comfortable lighting can be difficult to acquire without breaking the bank, and so many choices can also mean a lot of potential pitfalls.

To help you along the way, here’s just a few solid options for making the economical choice in style.

Ceiling Panels

With homes and offices slowly moving away from fluorescent lights and other less favoured options, LED lights in Melbourne have been booming, and for good reason.

Ceiling panels can give the impression of a natural light source and make a room feel larger and less constrictive.

These simply reliable squares of light take up little space and bring a surprising amount of illumination for their size.

They may not be lighting an Olympic basketball court any time soon, but for a stylish touch to your living area, a few well selected panels are sure to impress.

Motion Sensor/Auto Dimmers

Creating a welcoming entrance to any room, while also taking the stress and expense out of consistent, on-demand lighting, motion sensors and auto dimmers can be a luxurious, cost effective addition to your home.

These lights can often be set for brightness, so you can always be sure that your room hits the perfect lighting just as you walk in.

The interesting difference between auto dimmers and other kinds of automatic lighting is that they are always illuminated to various extents, sometimes going as low as three watts equivalent, to conserve energy while still creating a fluid and natural feeling as it brightens to your preference.

Window Space

One oft overlooked factor when setting up a room is how furnishings will affect light entering it, which can lead to dark, gloomy areas that have the potential to be warm and inviting with just some small alterations.

Making sure that you are minimising the obstruction of natural light will go far in creating a living area or bedroom that you can be proud of.

If this isn’t possible in your current abode, using soft light bulbs in these rooms can supplement the light lost and still leave you with a cosy, comfortable place to wind down.

Room Mapping

Having a strong light source in the middle of a room is all well and good, but it can be distracting, and neglect corners and walls that can’t be reached.

Making smart choices about where your lighting lays can completely transform a room, providing an even glow and avoid the risk of walls becoming overshadowed.

This layout will be different depending on the size and purpose of room being furnished, but a keen eye is often all you need to make sure that your home is at its best.

While it may be difficult at first, specifying the lighting of your home can make all the difference to how comfortable you and your family will feel within it.

In the end, the best choices will be different for everyone, but the more information you have going into an endeavour of this kind, the better.
