It is amazing what the proper lighting can do to enhance any room of your home. Did your home come with any ugly ceiling light, a noisy ceiling fan, or just a dark corner? Handyman Services Indianapolis can brighten your home with new lighting! Check out our tips on proper lighting for your home
A ceiling fan will circulate the air to keep you cool in the summer not by lowering the temperature in you room, but by creating a wind chill effect as air moves against your skin. It’s the same principle as feeling a gentle breeze on a hot day.
In the winter a fan can be beneficial too. By pulling the cool air up, warm air moves down. Winter or summer the result is a reduced use of energy which saves you money.
Lighting Tips for Your Home
Studying requires the best lighting. Reader light bulbs provide bright light that is ideal for reading and tasks.
Kitchens need to be brightly lit for food preparation.
Enhance your family time with a variety of fixtures that give off ambient (low), general (medium), and reading (high) light.
Avoid fluorescent bulbs, which tend to be unflattering. Opt for a softer bulb that has good light distribution.
For a more relaxed mood, use lights on a dimmer. This gives you the option of strong light or softer light depending on your needs.
Place lights as high up as possible to eliminate dark areas that could compromise work, study, and hobby time.
