Home Staging: Add Lighting for Beauty

Nothing transforms a house like light. Choosing the right lighting for you home is a great way to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Although adding lighting to a room is not difficult to do, you will need a plan that considers the variety of activities that will occur there.

1. “Task lighting” allows you to complete a task, such as reading, without getting blinded, but also without needing to strain your eyes to get the job done! Reading requires task lighting that comes from behind the reader's shoulder or reflects off the ceiling or wall.

2. “Accent lighting” highlights or features certain areas. When you look around your home, what do you see? More importantly, what do you WANT to see? It may be a particular piece of artwork, an unusual plant, or an interesting architectural feature. No matter what you choose to emphasize, accent lighting will help it stand out and add a dramatic touch.

3. “Ambient lighting” is the general lighting that provides overall illumination to the areas in use.

Knowing the way you use the room will guide you to choices that change your home from drab to dynamic.
