Why your choice of lighting matters this winter

Winter lighting

The importance of lighting during these shorter, darker days of winter is undeniable. In fact, the right lighting can make a big difference to your wellbeing at this particular time of year.

With January often billed as the most depressing month of the year and cases of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) at their height post-holidays, now couldn’t be a better time to revise your interior lighting scheme.

In this blog post, we explore the importance of lighting your home the right way and the rewards you can reap as a result not just this winter but every season after.

Enhance your interior design rather simply

Sometimes the simplest updates make the most significant difference. If you want to start the New Year with a fresh new interior look, upgrading your lighting could be just the ticket.

The right lighting can transform the look and feel of any room in the home. It can also be used to highlight certain parts of the room or specific features to ensure an aesthetic choice that all your visitors will be envious of.

Increase the feeling of space in your home

Cutting the clutter is certain to be on many people’s to-do lists for 2023. It’s not just your choice of storage solutions that could make your home feel more spacious and comfortable, however.

How your room is lit via its wired lighting to its lamps and candles will boost the feeling of space no-end. Illuminate shady areas and dark corners to show off every part of your room and make your space feel much, much bigger.

Create an interior that inspires productivity

With a large proportion of people still working from home, your lighting could have an impact on your productivity too. The use of natural and artificial lighting throughout the working day can boost your work rate as well as help you get stuff done in your home life.

Lift your spirits this season and beyond

The positive effect good lighting has on your mental health and wellness shouldn’t be underestimated. The presence of lighting can improve your mood to ensure a calm, stress-free atmosphere for the entire family.

Exposure to a good mix of natural and artificial light has been linked to improved energy levels, a happier outlook, healthier appetite, better sleep quality, and increased relaxation to name but a few benefits.

With this in mind, revising your lighting scheme is one of the cosy changes everyone should make to their interior this season.

Remember, bright light isn’t the best option!

The impact lighting can have on your wellbeing isn’t always positive. Bad lighting can have negative results, preventing you from winding down and enjoying your home life. Get Blogo explains which type of light has the best outcome at home:

“Studies have shown that lighting can improve your mood. A dark home isn’t good for your eyesight and mood. If you want to make the home atmosphere calm and stress-free, go for ambient lighting. Examples of ambient lighting are wall lamps, chandeliers, and night lights. Dark or low lighting creates a gloomy and dull environment. Warm lighting will make your home feel warm and bright.”
