Lighting plays a crucial role in creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere in your home. Not only does it provide functional illumination for daily activities, but it can also enhance the mood and ambiance of your living space. However, with so many lighting options available, it can be overwhelming to decide on the best approach for your home. In this context, we will explore some effective tips and strategies to teach you how to light your home in a way that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and energy-efficient.

How to light your home

Lighting tips for the bedroom of your dreams

If there is one thing most people agree on, its that your bedroom should always be the most comfortable room in your home. You want it to look and feel just right and turn it into a space which is truly yours.

At HunterCON we believe the key to a good bedroom is good lighting. Check out some of our great bedroom lighting tips.

Remote controls

We are all well aware of the practicality and convenience of remote controls. Now, instead of your television or garage door, imagine using a remote control to adjust the lighting in your bedroom. With a lighting remote, you can turn your lights on and off, adjust the brightness and control various bulbs, all from the comfort of your bed.

Motion activation

There is nothing worse than banging your toe on the corner of your bed as you fumble to find the light switch and turn it on in the dark of the night. Bedrooms can be fitted with motion-activated lighting options. Our experienced electricians can quickly and easily install weak motion-activated solutions so that when you walk towards the door, a dim light will flick on. How cool is that?

Full-control lighting

Imagine being able to change up the mood of your bedroom with the turn of a dial. By shifting the brightness, you can create the perfect atmosphere for reading before bed, or even a romantic night in. HunterCON can install dials which allow you too quickly and easily take full control of your lighting. Another great thing about this option, is that is can save you power and money too!

Task lighting

The bedroom has many diverse functions and is not merely a place to sleep. You might use your bedroom as a makeup studio, a workplace, a mini art gallery, or a place where you play music. As such, lighting may be essential. HunterCON can install a range of practical options to enhance your space, such as a back-lit mirror, or spotlight.

Feature lighting

Of course, aesthetics are just as important as practicality when it comes to your bedroom. HunterCON can install a range of feature lighting options to enhance the aesthetics of your bedroom and evoke a certain atmosphere or feeling. This may be specialised lighting, or a beautiful lighting fixture, but this is entirely up to you.

Using lighting to create the perfect living room

In recent weeks, we have explored the ways lighting can bring out the best in your bedroom. Now, we are taking a look at how the right lighting creates a stunning atmosphere in your living room.

The living room is an essential part of your home; the place where family comes together to enjoy each other’s company and the place where you will spend time with guests. So, how can you use different lighting to make your living room feel perfect?

Utilise multiple lighting types

Incorporating various types of light within a single room can create a sense of depth and texture. We recommend using at least one of each of the following lighting types:

  • Ceiling lights: It can be as simple as a light fitting in the middle of the ceiling or as sophisticated as a dangling chandelier; whatever suits your style.
  • Floor lights: Floor lights in the form of tall standing lamps or an accent light-up can overcome gravity and give new warmth and style to the room.
  • Table lights: Mid-level lights are not only beautiful but can be functional too. Try a table lamp, desk lamp, or even a low-hanging pendant-style light fixture.

Ambient, task and accent lighting

In our last blog post, took a look at ambient, task and accent lighting and the ways they can be combined to enhance the look and feel of any space. Try incorporating all types of light into your living room to achieve a living space which is as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical. Read our blog post about ambient, task and accent lighting to find out more.

Feature lighting

While functionality is obviously the most important when it comes to lighting, aesthetics are very important when it comes to the special spaces in your home. Lighting can function as a piece of art or feature of any room. HunterCON is passionate about installing feature lighting options to enhance the aesthetics of your living space, helping to evoke the atmosphere or feeling that you most want to achieve. This may be in the form of specialised lighting or stylish lighting fixtures, but this is entirely up to you.
