How to Add Value to Your Home Using Interior Lighting Design 

If you are getting ready to sell your home, you are probably thinking of ways to maximize its value and make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers. Making effective use of your light fixtures and interior lighting design can help you reach your goal. 

How? Lighting can be used to make your property more aesthetically pleasing, and it can work alongside the current structure to improve your space in terms of functionality and usability

Here are some simple tips on how to increase the value of your home using interior lighting design: 

1. Create Curb Appeal

Improve your home’s curb appeal and value by installing outdoor lighting in key areas. Talk to your professional lighting installer about adding: 

  • Small lights around the perimeter of the property, angled upwards to shine a light onto the front of your home. This will be an eye pleaser and give the illusion of a bigger home. 
  • Motion sensors to improve security and visibility, while keeping energy costs down by eliminating lights being left on unnecessarily. 

Make sure to consider functionality when installing outdoor lighting and motion sensors to ensure they’re in the right areas. Typical locations would include: 

  • Pathways
  • Outside sheds 
  • Around beautiful features such as a pool or fountain 
  • Outdoor seating
  • Dark bushed spaces 



2. Improve Your Kitchen Lighting 

A kitchen is the centre of most homes and it’s often the determining factor when it comes to purchasing a house. Not only does the lighting in this room need to enhance the functional capabilities of the kitchen, but it should also provide a comfortable and beautiful ambiance for families who want to eat and spend time together. 

Some key kitchen lighting tips you may want to follow include: 

  • Have a layered look with different types of lighting including task, ambient, decorative, and accent lighting
  • Install a smart lighting system
  • Use LED lights for more variety and greater cost-effectiveness 
  • Add dimmers that will allow you to customize your ambience depending on the situation
  • Choose the correct light temperature 



3. Consider an LED Retrofit 

The benefits of an LED retrofit are endless. This is an extremely cost-effective process and it will work to increase the value of your home and impress potential buyers. Switching to LED lights will reduce your energy consumption by up to 80%, while giving you a myriad of other benefits, including: 

  • Longer lifespan 
  • Fewer maintenance requirements 
  • Exceptional colour range 
  • Instantaneous illumination 
  • Directional lighting that reduces lighting wastage 



4. Make Some Electrical Upgrades 

One of the easiest ways to increase the value of your home and make it more appealing to buyers is to make some simple electrical upgrades. Talk to your electrician about: 

  • Panel replacement: Consider replacing your old fuse box or breaker panel. Old panels weren’t built to handle modern levels of electricity and can potentially overheat, causing house fires. 
  • Plate replacement: If you’re looking to update your space, try installing new plate covers for your power outlets and light switches. Antique metal or marble finishes can turn these necessities into beautiful accents. 
  • Childproof your outlets: Think about investing in child-proof power outlets. This is especially important if you want to sell your home to families with children. 

When you are selling your home, good interior lighting design can make prospective buyers feel much more comfortable and safe. Most of these adjustments won’t break the bank and they can go a long way towards increasing the value of your home.
