If you’re looking at making your home a welcoming place, then it’s important to have good lighting inside and outside you home. Not only will it make your home look and feel warmer, it will also make you and your visitors feel safer.
Here are a few ideas and tips to help improve the lighting situation in your home.
1) Don’t shop at your local store, shop online. It’s easier to compare prices for various products by checking online prices. This saves you time and money and also stops you from wasting gas by driving from store to store. You can also find out which stores are offering the best deals and whether or not they have a special of matching the lowest price you can find.
2) Keep your outdoor lighting up to date all year long. Nothing welcomes someone into your home like warm lighting outside. This is especially true during the winter on colder, darker evenings. A well lit path or walkway up to the front door and driveway helps people navigate safely through the cold and snow.
You can also place lights on either side of your front door. This additional lighting not only is welcoming to guests but also has an added security value. If possible mount a light post in your front yard will also improve your lighting and increase the feeling of a secure household, along with making your home feel more welcoming to guests.
3) The indoor lighting in your home will help make a good impression on your guests. The lighting in your entrance will help improve the first impression that is felt when one comes walking through the door. This isn’t just targeted towards your guest either. Anyone can tell you that there’s nothing better than walking into your house on a cold winter’s night and being met with a warm, softly lit light along with a heated atmosphere.
A good foyer lamp or ceiling fixture is a popular choice to help light up your homes entrance. Also adding some elegant wall sconces and a unique lamp all add on to the welcome to my home feeling.
Use these tips to help improve the lighting situation in your house. But increasing the appearance of a warm and welcoming house, not only outside, but inside too, you are creating a relax atmosphere that you and your guest can enjoy. This is a great way to update your house without spending a ton of cash.
