Lighting is the most significant aspect of creating a space, and it is also the one critical element that should not be missed when planning to sell your home, according to interior designers.

It should go without saying, but if you have a lot of natural light in your house, take use of it. According to a study from Rightmove, while natural lighting is unlikely to alter the pricing of a house’s value, its worth may be impacted by the angle in which it faces, such as sun-kissed south-facing backyards – yet adequate natural lighting will almost surely affect its capability to be sold.

With virtual tours becoming more widespread and frequently utilized in times like this, as the first point of call before scheduling a face-to-face ocular, filming at the ideal time of day to achieve natural lighting will assist to display your home in the best possible light.

However, not everyone lives in a home with abundant natural lighting, and that is where artificial lighting techniques come into place, so a multi-layered lighting strategy is essential in any indoor space.

He says that it is always a good idea to keep your blinds, drapes, and lights open for better photography in each viewing. Lastly, if at all feasible, he suggests trying and schedule viewings around the ideal time of maximum natural daylight.

To generate a natural light impression in a gloomy environment, experts from Smart Lighting Industries recommend using “as many linear lights as needed.” They continue to explain how lighting placement is critical, and a mixture of angles and orientations will aid in achieving the finest natural light impact, especially in spaces that may not receive natural daylight throughout an entire day.
