Real Estate Q&A: Lighting Your Home?


The Nest Q&A

What are some different lighting techniques that will set the mood in my home?


Overhead lighting is important in that it can provide a lot of light and contribute to the decor of a room. However, floor lamps provide the warmest, most flattering light (for the room and you).  Great lighting helps set the mood for a date night or dinner parties and allows you to read and write comfortably. It can also highlight artwork and pictures on shelving. And a good lighting system adds value to your home .

Try extending a single overhead fixture with halogen track lighting or energy-efficient, low-voltage, flush-mounted pin lights. Both come in an array of styles and prices, making them affordable options. Track and pin lights are easily installed and should take a licensed electrician less than half a day to finish one room.

Another bright idea when it comes to lighting is dimmers. If you haven't installed dimmers on all the switches in your home, run (don't walk) to your nearest home center to pick up some dimmer kits. They're inexpensive , easy to install and a very useful interior design feature.
