If you’re planning to sell your home, you can make your interiors and exteriors truly shine by improving the lighting. Here are a few tips on how to brighten your home in the eyes of your family, your friends, and your potential buyers.
Drapes, Blinds, and Shades
Natural light works best for lighting just about any indoor space, especially residential spaces that need to look fresh yet cozy. Make sure to open all window coverings to let in that lovely sunlight.
Place an emphasis on the room’s focal points, whether that’s an alcove or entertainment center or some artwork, by using proper lighting. Use task or sequence lighting in such spaces.
The driveway and other such areas can be lit with the help of low-voltage string lights or solar-powered outdoor lights.
You can greatly enhance the curb appeal of your home by placing interesting and beautiful lamps on your porch.
Lighting placed around your house for the purposes of security or function needs to be high up to ensure enough light is spread into open areas. Try using bright lights for your exteriors.
Lighting which accentuates the interior of your home should also be visible from the outside. Use lighting to add a feeling of warmth and grace to a room before people even come into your house.
Mood and Theme
If your home is chic and modern, try using a clean and simple lighting design. For more classic styles, use ornate lighting, such as chandeliers.
LED lights work best for the kitchen, bathroom, and other functional areas. The sustainable and low resource nature of LED lights also make them a great draw for buyers concerned about the environment.
