Advice for Enhancing Interior Light

Remember that too much direct lighting can detract from the comfort of a space, instead of the other way around. When choosing interior lighting, consider these additional tips to dramatically enhance its effectiveness:

Eliminate unnecessary light sources. Overhead lighting is great for filling an entire room with bright light, however, this strong lighting is not ideal for creating a relaxing environment. Turn off your overhead or ceiling fan lighting in the evenings to create a cozier space.

Install window shades for complete comfort control. Keep your spaces comfortable by installing window shades. These will not only keep exterior glare out, but they will also help your home retain heat by ensuring it does not escape through the windows.
