2. You don’t want to be associated with the previous century!
There’s no time like the present and nowadays technology is advancing with the snap of a finger.

Not only that, dimmers reduce the strain of too bright lights and help you customize your home as per your mood allowing you to feel like you’re in different places at once. Pretty neat huh?
4. You don’t have enough lamps
Overhead lighting is the easiest option when considering lighting fixtures for a home, but one mustn’t forget task lighting which basically increases luminescence to better accomplish a specific activity.

Lamps also add more individuality to houses as they have many different styles and are an ease for the eyes as well as easy on the eyes.
5. No Emissions are better than low emissions
