Advantages of dimming lights in residential settings

Dimming lights in residential settings can be a great addition. Dimming lights bring a range of advantages, including:

  • Improved lighting control- Dimming lights can alter the level of brightness a light-bulb emits. So from a bright task light, to a soft illumination, dimming lights can provide a full spectrum of colour and light suitable for any environment. For LED bulbs and fixtures, there is even more control over the brightness and colour levels, and these LED bulbs will also use much less electricity, saving you money on bills too.
  • No need for wall lighting- For bedroom lighting, a dimming light bulb will replace the need for additional wall lights to be installed, as these are often used to provide a soft light for comfort in the evening. Instead, the main ceiling light can instead be dimmed, to provide this same soft glow. This will make maintenance and repairs much easier, as you will be reducing the number of light fixtures.
  • Save money- its not just LED bulbs and fixtures that will help you save money. Dimming light bulbs themselves can help you cut down on a portion of your monthly bills. This is because when set lower, the bulb will use less energy, costing you less money.
