How to choose the perfect lighting for your home

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your home, and if it isn’t, it should be. Bad lighting can not only impact your eyesight, but it can negatively affect you when you’re doing work, cooking and taking out day-to-day tasks – bad lighting whilst doing all of these could also be very dangerous. You may not appreciate the lighting in your home, but when it is poor, you certainly can.

So, to reap the benefits of good lighting and to be sure the lighting in your home is perfect, here are a few helpful hints.

Safety for your home

On the exterior walls of your home, along the walkways, be sure to light up the way for visitors at your home. Ambient lighting should be applied all around the exterior – too dim lighting is an invitation for intruders, whereas too bright lighting could potentially disturb the neighbours. For a helping hand, follow the security lighting and aesthetics of your neighbours.

Multiple light sources for one space

For rooms such as the kitchen and bedrooms, we suggest you have multiple sources of lighting as it will help you achieve multiple functions in just one space. In the kitchen, haver under counter and cupboard lighting and in bedrooms invest in lamps or bed-side lights.

Remember night lighting for kids

If you have children who are scared of the dark, it is extremely important to have night lighting as it will help them sleep. It will also help you parents navigate through the room in the dark to get to the kids.
