3 Things to Consider When Choosing Lighting Options

  1. Size- When choosing lighting options, it’s important to think about both the size of the fixture itself and the size of the room it will be going into. You don’t want to overwhelm a cozy space with a giant fixture, and you also don’t want to leave corners of a larger space in darkness because the option you chose was too small. Fortunately, we at Mabe’s Electrical and Home Improvement can offer expert advice on how to strike the right balance.
  2. Design Theme- Another thing to consider when choosing lighting options is the design theme you are trying to achieve. In addition to its purely functional role, your lighting also goes a long way toward defining the overall look of a space, so it’s important to select fixtures that work well with the rest of your décor.
  3. Types of Bulb- A third thing that you should think about when choosing lighting fixtures is what types of light bulbs they are compatible with. The type of bulbs you use will affect your overall energy consumption–options such as compact fluorescent bulbs or LEDs use far less energy than standard incandescent ones–as well as the visual atmosphere of your space. Our team at Mabe’s Electrical and Home Improvement can help you select the right bulbs and fixtures to meet all your efficiency and design needs.
