Planning A House Renovation or Make Over? Perfect Time To Update Your Lighting
If you’re planning a house renovation or make over, then it’s the perfect time to update your lighting. Spend some time thinking about the function of your room and any previous frustrations you may have had – light in the wrong place, or the room is too dark. Once you’ve worked out your lighting placement, then you enjoy selecting some new fittings from the many lighting styles available today. Selecting some new light fittings is a very cheap way to make over a room.
Below are some lighting placement ideas for various rooms in your home:
With the opportunity to modernise your lighting in the bedroom, think about having a two-way switch design. That means there’s usually a switch next to the bedroom door and another switch bedside the bed. Select some discreet LED down lights for the ceiling which will give you bright illumination for the evenings you feel like doing some bedroom organisation and for reviewing your outfit in the mirror (we would recommend the LED downlights on a dimmer as well). Depending on the size of your bedroom you may required two to four down lights, you could put two for one switch and two on another – these could be nominated to be at door entrance and beside the bed.
The second light choice should be the mood lighting around your bed. Either some nice wall mounted lights, or adjustable reading lights above each side of the bed, or go for a recent trend with a pendant that hangs over your bedside table. Each side light should be connected to switch its relevant side of the bed.
Good thinking tip: You can put your bedroom lights on a two-way switch, that means you can turn them on at the door and turn them off beside your bed after you hop in!
Modern convenience tip: USB power points beside the beside table can be handy for charging your smart phones over night. Bedrooms are where everyone sleeps and relaxes, so lighting fixtures that are subtle and style to induce setting that mood. This is a room where you want to keep the lighting soft to induce relaxation and sleep.
