3 Great Lighting Installations For Seattle Homes
Lighting plays an important part in the safety and comfort we feel in our homes. Unfortunately, many Seattle homes were built with a set number of light fixtures which are insufficient for modern times. Perhaps it's okay to have one light bulb on the front porch, an overhead light in a couple of rooms, and one light in the kitchen and laundry room, but only if you're not that concerned with safety and security.
Most lighting of today is very energy efficient and can actually save you money if you replace your old lights and fixtures. You may need to install additional lighting if your home isn't properly illuminated. Whether it's interior lighting or exterior, having good light to see by will make a huge difference for you. Here are 5 lighting installations you'll want for your Seattle home.
Unless you had a custom home built that included additional lighting options, your home probably has insufficient lighting by today's standards. But even so, if your home is older than five years to a decade, you could be saving energy with low voltage lighting today. Today's light bulbs and fixtures are much more energy efficient but offer the same illumination.
Standard kitchens may have a light installed under a hood vent and a ceiling light fixture or two, but that's not good illumination for food preparations. And likewise, the rest of the home is not properly illuminated. Indoor and outdoor lighting can be used for decorative effect or for safety and security reasons.
In a residential setting, security lighting involves safety as well as security. Good lighting illumination is important for your safety and security in your Seattle home.
