Huntsville AL Home for Sale: Improve Lighting to Increase Value

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On June 20, 2011

The right lighting can make your home appear bigger and fresher. It makes a small room look bigger and a large room seem more intimate.  It can also add value to your Huntsville AL home for sale.  

Just like furniture, lighting can be used as home décor to make your home more beautiful and functional.  Done correctly, lighting can positively impact the way buyers view your Huntsville AL home for sale – and for far less money than other decoration options.

For maximum impact, every room in your home should have three layers of light:

  1. Ambient Lighting:   Ambient lighting provides overall illumination for the whole room.  Typical lighting fixtures for this layer include ceiling fixtures such as recessed lights, chandeliers and surface-mounted lights.
  2. Task Lighting:  Task lighting focuses on a specific area of the room where activities like playing cards, reading or sewing require additional light.  It can be as simple as under-cabinet lighting in a kitchen or a reading lamp by a chair.
  3. Accent Lighting:  Accent lighting creates drama in a room by highlighting architectural features, paintings, statues and other decorative items.  Accent lights should be small and specifically directed toward the decorative piece you want to accentuate.  One of the most popular forms of accent lighting is track lighting.
