Dimmers - A Bright Idea!!



What is one of the best ways to "Show Off" your home?  The answer may surprise you...  

Dim your lights!!!

It's true!!  By dimming the lights in your home you bring the layers of design to life and you create depth in the space.

Not only does it look better - but you also save money doing it!!  That means you get to buy a new pair of shoes..... right??

Seriously though....  Let's look at "Light Control" and the benefits of it:

In the average home most light switches are simple on/off - this means that your fixtures are putting out the same amount of light whether it is day or night, whether it is needed or not...  Through dimming, you can control the amount of the light, which in turn improves your space utilization.

Light control is the ability to regulate the level and quality of light, it enhances the experience in a space and it helps to save energy - which in turn saves you money.

Many custom homes will throw in a dimmer for the dining room or the entry fixture, but what about the rest of the home.....

Surprisingly, one of my favorite places to use a dimmer is in the Master Bath - 
Think about it..... How great is it to wake up slowly...

Personally, I need to come out of my sleep gradually - with a nice cup of coffee.... :)  Just sayin.....  Soft lighting in the bathroom first thing in the morning is a wonderful way to wake up.

Last but not least - let's think about the exterior of your home.....  
How nice is it to sit on the back patio at the end of a long day and enjoy a moment of peace.... That is much easier to do if the lighting can be tailored and personalized for your mood.

Wow - on that note, I think I'm ready to head home, kick off my shoes and relax!!!

  2. Dimming the lights makes a room feel cozy. Also the older I get, I look better in dimmed lights.
