3-11-14 Lighting!!

Home values and desirability are influenced largely by location.  We all know that.  Perhaps the second biggest influencer is light.  Every buyer wants good light in their home and the best way to have it is to design it in.  Consider where the sun is at different times during the year; consider the landscaping and roof overhangs.  Skylights can be an attractive element in the right locations.  Light fixtures, while second to natural lighting, are best when provide even lighting throughout the space and are often more attractive subdued.  While you need more can lights to provide light throughout the room because of their directional nature, they can be a more attractive way of lighting the room.
