HOUSES FOR SALE IN LEKKI: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LIGHTING YOUR HOME
Light is a constant component existing around us with enough to go around and while natural lighting could be a blessing, we also have the option of artificial lighting that might be uniquely poised to be artistically or functionally valuable as dependent on the preference and need of the user.
Lighting is taken into consideration right from the moment the plan for a building is being drawn and through the construction phases of the building and even after the completion of the house because lighting as much as it is functional can also be deeply aesthetics.
But afterwards when your house is completed or when you have been able to successfully purchase one of the Nedcomoaks real estate company’s houses for sale in Lekki or at any other strategic place, it becomes important to deliberately plan the interplay of light in your home, and how to strategically position the lighting to give you the desired or desirable effect.
These tips will surely help you to maximize the use of both natural and artificial lighting in your house
1. Do not rely on only one source of lighting
When thinking of lighting up your house or you are really just concerned about complementing the natural light source, you really do not want to be stuck with just one source of lighting, you want to create complementary lighting patterns that work. Make sure there are multiple light sources, that effectively augment each other and give a nice outlook at the end of the day.
2. Protect your eyes, use dimmer lights, not excessively bright lights
For your lighting composition, as much as you would want to inject some light into your space, you would also want to avoid extremely bright lighting as you do not want to take chances of risk of damage to your retina, as extremely bright lights could be organically damaging.
Instead you would want to use dimmers and softer lights including softer light-bulbs as these are agreeable to your eyes relative to ultra-bright lights.
3. Positioning your light switches
Have you ever been to a room where the light switches seem to be out of place and relatively unreachable?
Sometimes, in the course of trying to achieve the master-piece status, we neglect such little details as how the light-switch is placed.
Light-switches should be about 36 inches above the floor and about 2 inches off the side of the wall.
4. Stairs and hallways
Most of the houses for sale in Lekki are equipped with stairs and hallways. Stairs and hallways should have a decent source of lighting with switches on both sides of the wall to prevent accidents that might occur as a resultant of the absence of illumination.
Mirrors can be such wonderful items when it comes to lighting as they can help to bounce off reflected light around the room helping to create an illusion of more sources of lighting than are available.
