Spring is a great time for renovations and construction of homes. People are rebuilding their interior and exterior by implementing the ideas that mulled through their heads throughout the winter. Since the time of work is now, perhaps it is time to change your home lighting design to handle mood, aesthetics and energy consumption for the coming year.
Especially with indoor lighting, there are several options for lamps and systems that can be implemented early. Such systems can dramatically change a room or interior design, so understanding some of the different technologies will help to make the best decision for interior lighting. Below is a breakdown of the advantages and disadvantages of a few common renovations of interior lighting and the consequences they will have in a home.
