If you are looking to bring in some more light to your home this spring to drown out the dark winter days, there are a few key things to consider before upgrading your light fixtures. These are simple changes that can make a huge difference to the interior of your home- even if you are lacking a large budget.
Here at Ascension General Contractors, we’ve put together some of our favorite ideas for upgrading your light fixtures.
Opt for Energy Efficiency
Improving the lighting of your home can increase its overall value. It is also a great opportunity to save money by using energy-efficient options. LEDs are great alternatives and use less energy than compact fluorescent and traditional incandescent bulbs. This can positively impact your electric bill costs. They also have a longer lifespan, up to 20-25 years.
Look for Eco-Friendly Options
Eco-friendly lighting is good for the environment because it uses much less energy to run compared to your typical incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. So not only does this help lower utility costs, but you will also be helping to lower energy use. There are three main types of eco-friendly light bulbs available that you can choose from including halogen incandescent, LED, and CFL.
Add Additional Lighting
If the current fixtures in your home don’t provide enough light throughout your home, consider adding more lighting. Adding some task lighting in your kitchen can help make cooking easier while helping prevent injuries while preparing food. For example, under cabinet lighting fixtures are essentially invisible once they are installed and a great feature to your kitchen.
