In today’s economy, who doesn’t want to get every bit of value out of their home? Property value that leads to a strong return on investment is one of the leading reasons people buy homes instead of rent in the first place. The good news is that you can easily increase the value of your home just by making smart decisions and seeing that they’re carried out properly. Deciding on some simple, strategic upgrades doesn’t have to break the bank. There are many ways to achieve a great return on a modest budget. One thing that can quickly transform a house is lighting, and installing recessed lighting has shown to be a profitable move. Lighting sets a tone for a home, whether potential buyers are conscious of it or not. Many buyers are very aware of it, however, and have preferences before they even enter the home. Recessed lighting is often the preferred choice of home buyers because of its ability to provide great lighting while blending into the ceiling, as opposed to a lighting fixture that may not suit the future owner’s taste. It’s a neutral option, one that’s proven to pay off.
Upgrade with a Recessed Lighting Makeover
Whether you’re trying to make decisions about your new construction that you’ll reap the benefits of later or wanting to remodel your house to get it market ready, installing recessed lighting is a simple, cost-efficient way to makeover a house and give it new life. Recessed lighting is both attractive and functional and comes with several benefits, the main advantages being:
- It makes your home appear bigger. Light fixtures that hang below the ceiling obstruct the ceiling’s natural line. To the eye, this makes the room appear broken up and smaller. While recessed lighting doesn’t actually add more square footage to a room, it blends into the ceiling line, making the room appear more spacious and open-concept.
- It instantly updates your home. Though recessed lighting isn’t a new trend, it still makes your home look and feel more current. Many styles of lighting fixtures that sit below the ceiling line are commonly considered outdated, a big turn off for potential buyers. Buyers want to feel like a home is move-in ready and not a project that will need renovation as soon as they move in to bring it up to date. Recessed lighting provides a modern yet classic look that isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
- It makes your home a lot brighter. With traditional lighting fixtures, you have one or two to a room. This means that lighting is focused in these areas and scatters out to the rest of the room. The problem with this is that you end up with shadows around the room and some areas being brighter than others, but it would look strange to add more light fixtures to help solve the problem. With recessed lighting, you can create a lighting layout that equally covers the entire room without looking odd or overdone. The entire room is equally bathed in warm lighting, creating an atmosphere that’s both lively and well-lit but also subtle and soothing.
