Lighting is one of the most important parts of a room that many people fail to properly consider. Lighting has come a long way since the days of simple fixtures and lamps. Thanks to LEDs and other innovations in the industry, today’s lighting can do much more and transform a room in ways that old lights simply couldn’t. The tiny size of LEDs combined with the fact that the bulb doesn’t get hot yet still puts out a great amount of light gives home builders flexibility they’ve never had before. When you add in the inexpensive cost of LEDs, you’ve got many new options for lights that don’t add much to the budget. Here are some new yet simple lighting solutions that home buyers may request in their new homes.
David Belman, President of Belman Homes, shares his observations regarding home bathroom trends from the International Builders Show. In this blog, we take a close look at the future of bathroom vanities—how they are built, what materials are being used in 2019, and how technological advancements are influencing design.
When it comes to building a new home, there are many different design choices you will have to make. In fact, it may seem like you’re facing a never-ending list of decisions! Some of those decisions revolve around lighting, and they’re more important than they may seem at first. Good lighting is almost invisible—it does what it needs to do in such a way that you rarely even notice it. Bad lighting, on the other hand, is an annoyance. A dark kitchen or office area can make using the space more difficult than it needs to be. A bedroom or bathroom with glaringly bright lights can be just as bad. While some of this can be handled by changing the bulbs, you still want to make certain that you have the right lighting. It can truly transform a space.
If you work from home, or if you run a business from your home, you know how important it is to have a space dedicated to work. Not only is it much easier to keep your job organized if you have, a home office also helps you separate work life from home life. Working from home makes it all too easy to do work when you should be resting or to be distracted by housework when you should be focused on business. If you can physically separate the two, you can shift between work mode and rest mode simply by walking into or out of your home office.
