Basement Lighting Options

Basement Lighting Options

December 28, 2020

Does your newly finished basement still feel cold and dreary because of your lighting system? Are you looking for ways to upgrade your basement without the need for a complete renovation? Then new light fixtures may be the perfect solution. At Mr. Electric of Dallas, we provide high quality commercial and residential electrical services including lighting installation, repair and replacement in Dallas, Texas and surrounding communities. If you are considering a basement lighting installation service, then be sure to consider the following important factors. 

Setting the Right Mood 

The first consideration is to think about what kind of mood you are trying to set. Will your basement serve as an extra living room, workshop or home office? Then consider brightening things up. On the other hand, if you want to use your extra square footage for a theater room, video game lounge or entertainment space, then you may want to opt for lights that are dimmable or offer color changing LEDs. 

Choosing the Right Fixtures for Your Basement Lighting System 

Next, think about the type of fixtures that will suit your needs best. For example, recessed lights are a popular option for basements, since ceilings in this area are often lower than they are on other levels of the home. Still, if you have artwork on the walls or want to showcase collectables, then spotlights or track lighting may be the perfect solution. Another popular option is to install faux windows by using custom built fixtures with lights and blinds to make the basement feel like daylight is coming into the area. 

Other Important Considerations

When choosing your fixtures there are many important factors at play. While the functionality and style are essential, there are a few other things to keep in mind. Placement, electrical wiring needs, energy efficiency and the property value impact are just a few of the most vital. Create a plan before you begin and speak with a professional who can help you make informed decisions. Our certified electricians will work one on one to create a customized lighting solution that is perfect for your specific needs, lifestyle, design preferences and budget.
