Help Sell Your Palisades Home With The Right Bedroom Lighting

Even though you may think about lighting and light sources in other areas of your Northwest Washington DC home, you may not think about it in terms of your bedroom. But just because the lights go off in that room for relaxation and comfort, the time spent awake should be comfortable as well. Even though sleeping may be your top priority, lights must also be available. Simple things like lighting really add to the total package when trying to sell your home.

If you often find yourself addicted to the latest series of books or study each night before bed, you are likely to need a table lamp for beside the bed. Always consider the task you intend to accomplish before selecting the light source; in this case, while you want the light to be bright enough to accommodate reading you do not want it to be so bright you need sunglasses. Most experts agree a 60-watt light bulb is sufficient for reading and general activity.

Remember - you are in the bedroom to sleep, at least eventually - and you should always consider whether or not you need to get out of bed to turn the light off. Nothing is more frustrating than getting comfortable and then realizing you have to get out of the bed to turn the light off.

Other kinds of lighting to think about are floor lamps. If they are mostly decorative, you don't need to worry too much about how they'll perform, just if they work with your decor in terms of style and finish. But if you have an actual need for them, again, you want to make sure they'll put out enough light.

For more information on how to use simple tactics such as lighting to help put your Capitol Hill or Chevy Chase home in the best light possible, contact Michelle Buckman at Buckman Realtor today.
