How Important is Lighting?
April 23rd 2019
Lighting can be art or ceiling jewellry. It can be dramatic, romantic, intriguing or nostalgic. What it should never be is tired.
Changing out your table lamps, sconces and chandeliers can make a more traditional space feel more transitional.
Lighting provides eye candy to distract from minor deficiencies. Interesting lighting can increase a sense of luxury in a kitchen, master bedroom or even a powder room.
Ambiant lighting or mood lighting can change the feeling of an entire space.
You don't have to break the bank to update your lighting in a way that elevates the emotional response to your property. Often big box stores like Loews or Home Depot will have sales on fixtures that will do the trick. Consider Homesense & Winners for table lamps.
Going to market without considering the impact of your light fixtures could mean leaving money on the table...more money than the cost of improving your presentation.
