Moving Tips: Home lighting options

LED bulbs can be good options for home lighting.

LED bulbs can be good options for home lighting.

The new home may need some added amenities, especially if it was recently constructed. One aspect that may help you enjoy living in your home is an improved lighting situation. This could be tricky, but focusing on light usage may help you feel comfortable long after your relationship with your moving company ends.

Depending on the room, you may decide to adorn the area with lamps. This could be good, especially if you plan on reading or doing work in these rooms. Keep in mind, having a bright ceiling light could make you uncomfortable when accomplishing some tasks, so trying some lamp options could be a good idea. Desk lamps can be helpful, while multiple lamps in the living room may help fill out the area, as well as make it more pleasing to sit in.

There are two light bulb choices that you may want to decide on. Currently, incandescent bulbs are becoming less popular, due to their inefficiency and short life spans. Instead, fluorescent lights could be a better options. These bulbs save far more energy than incandescent options, and they are not particularly expensive. However, for a light that will last longer and save even more energy, purchasing light-emitting diode bulbs may be the best idea. These are more expensive, but last far longer than fluorescent options. They also turn on more quickly than fluorescent, which can be beneficial.

It is also a good idea to determine how much you want to use in the room. If you are just using a ceiling light, check to see how much light it is actually giving off. If the room is too dark, it could be a good idea to consider using other lights in the room. Additionally, if you have a room with just lamps or wall lights, make sure there are enough to keep the room lit comfortably.

Painting the walls will affect lighting

Choosing what colors you will paint the room could affect your decision. Light wall colors could require fewer lights, as the walls will reflect the light more easily. However, painting the walls darker will likely require more light, or more powerful bulbs. You may want to use caution when choosing a paint option, as this may not come out with the lighting result you desired.
