When you walk through your home or enter a room, you turn on a switch and the light above your head or on the wall comes on, illuminating the space you’re using. You don’t think much about how your lighting works, but you’re happy that it does. However, when you stop to take note of the style of a fixture or how bright it is, you may notice that it looks a bit outdated when compared to the decor of the room, or that it’s not producing as much light as it needs to.
At Accent Lighting in Wichita, we can help you improve your home’s lighting by providing modern fixtures that match your decor and also provide the lumens that you need to see as you’re brushing your teeth, cooking a meal, or entertaining guests.
A More Cohesive Look
One improvement you can make when it comes to your lighting is to add more contemporary fixtures. If you’ve lived in your home for several years, then you may have an overhead light that’s one style, while the lamps on the end tables and the sconces on the wall are another style. By choosing a new style and updating all of the fixtures, you can create a more cohesive look that makes a room feel more complete. Instead of an old lamp that’s been sitting by the couch for several years, you can have a new lamp that matches the mini chandelier hanging from the ceiling.
With incandescent bulbs, the focus was always on watts and how they related to lumen output. You had to make sure that you had the proper wattage for a lamp or overhead fixture. With LED lighting and other new technologies, the focus is now on lumens and how bright the bulb will be, regardless of its wattage.
If you’ve noticed that certain rooms seem darker than they once were, or that they were never properly lit in the first place, then new bulbs might be the solution. You don’t necessarily have to upgrade your fixtures, but simply place newer, brighter bulbs in them. Our staff can help you find the right options for your home, and can answer any questions you have about lumens and light output. This can be especially beneficial for homeowners who are older and need more light to see by as they navigate through the house.
