By now, you’ve probably noticed how you can make your living space more welcoming for everyone.
From an increased amount of activity, to a wider range of furniture, a bright home will feel more welcoming to everyone.
But what about the dark?
This isn’t just a problem for those living in dark, damp spaces, or those living alone.
A dark environment can also make a dark room feel more intimidating for those who are used to living in a dark environment.
To help make your dark spaces feel a bit more inviting, consider using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in your home.
These dimmable LED lights create a dim light for your dark room that’s brighter than a typical daylight light.
A bright LED will help you feel less claustrophobic, but you might need to make sure you keep the space dimmed for safety.
If you have to leave your light on, be sure to put it on a timer to turn it off.
To avoid overloading your light source, it’s best to find a dimmer, dimmable bulb that will work well for you.
Light-emitter dioders can also be useful in your living room, which can help with light pollution in the home.
You can find these dimmable lights for less than $20 on Amazon.
You’ll need a bulb that can handle about 5 watts.
The dimmable LEDs can be set to light up for 30 minutes or more.
If using a dimmable light, be careful not to overheat them.
It’s best not to light your room on fire.
You could also try adding a few extra white LED lights to your home to make the home feel a little more inviting.
If this sounds like something you’d like to try, here are some recommendations for dimmable lighting options.
