When you update the lighting during a home renovation, you can enhance functionality, add visual interest, and boost overall property value. However, it can be challenging to narrow down all the options available. Here, the remodeling team at Kitsap Kitchen & Bath Co. in Poulsbo, WA, shares a few tips to help you select the best lighting.
What to Consider When Updating the Lighting for a Home Renovation
1. The Lighting’s Purpose
There are four major categories of lighting for home renovations—task, accent, decorative, and ambient—that are ideal for different purposes. Task lighting is ideal for illuminating a work space, such as kitchen countertops. Accent lighting, such as track lights, can add depth to the environment. Decorative lighting, like chandeliers, adds visual interest to a space. Ambient light, such as sconces, bounces off the ceiling to create a glow factor.
2. The Space
Where do you want to install the lighting? Task is good for the kitchen or bathroom, as the focused light with help with activities, like cooking. In more formal dining or living room areas, opt for more relaxed and decorative lighting to create atmosphere. Consider the size of the space as well. For example, if a room has high ceilings, use recessed lighting to create more directional light.
3. The Mood
If you’re looking to create a relaxed atmosphere, avoid task or direct lighting; instead, choose ambient light fixtures or accent lighting. However, if you’re looking to infuse a room with brightness and energy, add bolder, direct light options that will illuminate the space more evenly.
