Lighting is the most visible example of electricity at work in the home. Appliances and the various devices around the house may create a slight hum or flash a digital clock in our direction, but without proper lighting, we’re banging our shins, hips and heads against them. These days, however, lighting is not simply about buying a light bulb and screwing it in. Convenience, application and energy all play an important role in home lighting decisions.

Lighting fixtures are always functional in some regard, but can be as ornate or simple as you desire. For instance, think about how different two otherwise identical rooms would look if one had recessed can lights and the other had an illustrious chandelier. Other popular electrical amenities include dimmer switches, ceiling fans, track lighting and more.

How you light your home will have a profound effect on its overall feel and ambiance. The following articles will go into detail on the array of lighting options available for all your home designs and upgrades. A wisely designed lighting system is essential to fully realizing the home that so far only brightens up your dreams.
