Lighting Check Up for Fall/Winter Days

It’s that time of year when we realize that the house is getting dark earlier. This leaves us with shorter days and lower energy levels. Here are a few tips to help you avoid the Midwest winter blues.

  • Be sure to have multiple sources of light for each room.
  • Add dimmers for versatility and easy adjustment of light levels.
  • Make sure task lighting is available to eliminate shadows that will cause eye strain.
  • Check that your chandeliers are large enough and hung low enough to properly light table surfaces.
  • Accent lighting on art and shelving will contribute to the overall light levels of the room.
  • Switch out lampshades to white for the fall and winter months.
