The Importance of Good Lighting in a Home

The Importance of Good Lighting in a Home

Replacing burned out lights in your home can make more of an impact than you might think!

The Importance of Good Lighting in a Home

I was moving around some furniture in the basement last night and it occurred to me how depressing our basement looked.  It always felt so dark and dreary.  We don't have a walkout, so there is no sunlight coming into our family room.  Our family room has looked dark and dingy for a while and last night while we were cleaning, I saw that one of the floods in the corner ceiling can was out.

I went to my stash in the furnace room and grabbed a 65 watt Westinghouse BR40 Flood Light.  The moment after I screwed in the new bulb, our entire family room lit up!  The furniture looked different and the walls and ceiling increased their light output by about 30%!  It was incredible to me to see how much just one light bulb can make such a difference in a room, especially a room that has no natural daylight.

Here I am, surrounded by lights all day and I still somehow forgot to replace my burned out bulb.  Now I have a great reminder of how powerful lighting can be in enhancing the mood in just one room!
