Soft Lighting Options Installed by Miami Electrician

elcon1_1-16We need light in our lives. That is a fact. However, we don’t necessarily need so much light that the glaring brightness hurts our eyes or makes us feel uncomfortable. Often times, a single light fixture in a room gives you two options; complete darkness or overwhelming light. There is no middle ground. Sometimes, you don’t need a lot of light. In fact, by using less light, you can save money on your electric bill and make those bulbs last a little longer. Unfortunately, you don’t have that option with some fixtures, which is why you need the services of a Miami electrician, like those at Elcon Electric.

You have a couple different options to achieve that soft lighting in a room like the bathroom, bedroom or even the den. The first would be to have a dimmer switch installed by an electrician. Miami homeowners may need to have the light fixture in the room updated to accommodate the dimmer switch. This allows you to control just how much light you have flooding the room at any given time. It can be a dial or a slide switch or even be operated by a remote control or an app on your phone. There are numerous scenarios.

The other option is to have a light fixture in the center of the room that is for bright lighting needs and a couple of wall lights for those times you just want soft light. An electrician in Miami would install two different light switches to control the different fixtures. Typically a couple of wall lights on one side of the room is enough or you can have a wall light on opposing walls. There are many different options. Your biggest job will be choosing the one that is right for you. When you have, give Elcon Electric a call to make the lighting changes in your home.
