3 Lighting Tips For Your Home In Fairfax County

Lighting has a great impact on the overall look of a place. David Warfel, a lighting design specialist, has given some tips on how to avoid common lighting mistakes to make your homes In Fairfax County look more appealing. These tips are as follows.

Reduce Light On Floors And Enhance On Countertops

According to Realtor Magazine, “Warfel notes that many kitchens have more light shining on the floor than on the countertops, where it has the biggest impact.” David Warfel says, “Adding well-positioned recessed lights, pendant lights above islands, and under-cabinet lighting are among the ways to ensure our kitchen work areas have enough light.”

Illuminate The Distinct Details

According to Realtor Magazine, “Light in most homes tends to spotlight the drywall, the least expensive surface in a home. For example, highlight the stone walls in a living room, such as by placing the light directly above the face of the stone and having the light graze down the wall. David Warfel says, “Instead, position lights to selectively illuminate other details such as molding, arches, and shelves.”

Avoid Poor Bathroom Vanity Lighting

According to Realtor Magazine, “Warfel says it’s best to avoid poor bathroom vanity lighting. It will cast deep shadows under your eyes and chin. Wall sconces can be a stylish solution and provide a softer glow.”
