3 Tips for Selecting Lighting for Your Home Remodel, Lincoln, Nebraska

Light fixtures can set the mood of a room. Yet, with a wide variety of styles available, many individuals find it challenging to choose the right options during their home remodel. Fortunately, you can enjoy a stress-free selection process by following these three helpful tips.

How to Choose the Perfect Light Fixtures

1. Determine the Style

To ensure a sense of cohesion at the end of your home remodel, match the lighting to your overall design scheme. From modern farmhouse to Scandinavian minimalism, work with your contractor to identify the best options based on your theme. During this process, you'll also need to consider the post-remodel size of the space. The removal of a wall or a layout change may leave a room more spacious than before, so the same-sized fixtures won't be large enough to make an impact.

2. Match the Location

For kitchen remodeling, strategically-placed recessed and under-cabinet lighting provide optimal usability without overpowering the space. Additionally, pendant lights add a touch of style and enhance visibility for eating and food-prep areas, like bars and islands. This lighting style also works in bedrooms when carefully placed on either side of the bed.

Chandeliers create an intimate ambiance ideal for formal dining rooms and eat-in kitchens. Bathrooms, on the other hand, typically rely on a variety of lighting because of the minimal exposure to natural light. Recessed lighting and ceiling-mounting fixtures help brighten the area while wall sconces around mirrors and vanities provide warmth.  

3. Consider Special Features

Modern fixtures are now available with a plethora of unique features to make your home stand out. One of the most beneficial elements is energy efficiency. Most manufacturers offer designs with low-voltage outputs to reduce energy costs for homeowners. Many of these options are also available in combination with other special features, like dimmers.
