Average homeowners do not have unlimited finances and changing the outlook of their homes is almost at the bottom of their to-do life mission list. However, there are certain hacks that can be adopted in order to stun your neighbors with a home remodeling scheme that does not cost a kidney. This includes subtle changes to your home architecture like kitchen renovation, home additions, and basement remodeling. Although, the aforesaid changes can only be appreciated once you enter the house. Another form of giving your home a whole new look is by adopting modern lighting methods, that boost the overall appeal of the house in day time and especially in the night time. Housener.com is raising general awareness on increasing your home value and appeal, and this post is related to changing the lighting aspect of your home to bump it up on the living and selling scale in the same neighborhood.
Windows and roof opening play an important role in using the natural light to light your home and make it an energy-efficient home. Let light come in but use methods to keep the UV rays out which makes the light come in and the heat stays out. Pick out places that you need to enhance in your house and place natural/artificial light strategically so it lights upright, both at day and night time.
Before jumping into technical details, one must understand architectural lightings. Traditionally light sources are placed in the open, directly pointing towards the floor. In architectural lighting the source is concealed and space is illuminated by lighting bouncing of an additional surface like the roof, floor or the wall. This creases an elite ambiance that is difficult to achieve even with expensive lighting and attachments. Therefore, rule #1 should always be to bounce the light at least once!
White lights have been long associated with hospitals and emergency situations. Therefore, changing all your light sources from white to warm white/yellow is the second rule of thumb. However, if changing all the lights in the house is not an option, then one can always use interior grade paper that muffles white light into one with a warm yellow effect.
The first impression is usually where the house wins style points. Many people negate the requirement of lights on outdoor free home spaces. If you are looking for an instant house renovation fix, then it must include home additions with the help of lights, especially on the curb, walkways and door peripheries.
The correct lighting scheme is an art form or complete science and may never be cover in one blog post or even a book. Therefore, we try to sum up the things to do (or don’t) in a checklist that you must go through before you take up a modern lighting project as a part of your home remodeling scheme. The checklist is as follows:
Therefore, these little changes can be adopted in order to completely transform your home to a boring old house to a modern masterpiece without changing any of the structural features. Home additions are an expensive commodity; lighting is the short cut to a home renovation project without additional burden on the pocket. Happy Lighting!
