A Bright Way To Increase the Value of Your Home Is To Add Lighting

One of the most cost-effective strategies to increase your home’s value is through simple changes. Whether you decide to update your home’s existing interior lighting or exterior lighting, there are plenty of options and a lot to consider. The difference between before and after home lighting upgrades can be pretty dramatic. To make it easier for you, here are the 5 most valuable areas for you to consider home lighting upgrades in your house this year.

Let’s take a look at the five most valuable ways for you to increase your house’s value and beauty before Christmas!


Hearing “home lighting upgrades”, many homeowners likely think of the inside (bathrooms and kitchens, for instance). Right now, however, we want you to focus on exterior lighting upgrades.

Even when you consider your home’s location and overall design/style, there are endless options for exterior lighting updates. With some simple additions and finishes, the “curb appeal” of your home can skyrocket almost instantly.


The kitchen is often the heart of the home. With some lighting upgrades, you can make that space even more beautifully designed and inviting.

If you have an island, consider updating by installing new hanging lights. To highlight a unique backsplash, add LED under cabinet lighting for a dramatic finish.


The bathroom is another space where optimal lighting can create a relaxing spa-like atmosphere. For one thing, if your bathroom currently has simple overhead lighting, you might choose to install wall-mounted fixtures instead, to add value and a dash of warmth.

To add to the spa feeling, consider opting for dimmable bulbs over the bathtub. These can create an incredibly relaxing environment that’s bound to attract attention from homebuyers.


Though it’s not a place where you spend a ton of time, entryways and foyers have a unique position in the home, which bold, upgraded lighting can highlight. While some rooms in the house may not call for, or even support a chandelier an entryway is the exception.

Given a little time and attention, the entryway can become one of your home’s most exciting features, and homebuyers (who will likely enter by the front door) are very likely to take notice.


Like the kitchen, living rooms are a space that utilize multiple types of lighting. In addition to the task and accent lighting of the kitchen, they also make use of ambient lights to create an overall feeling of comfort, leisure, and relaxation.

While a home offers many opportunities for upgrades and updating, a bright way to increase the value of your home is to add lighting. Few are as simple and timeless as lighting and lighting fixtures.
