dimmer-switch-slideFor an easy lighting upgrade consider adding dimmer switches to all lighting so that you can adjust the light to the job or mood. Dimmer switches can provide brightness when brightness is needed and subdued lighting when romance or relaxation is desired.

    Any idea on the cost of doing dimmers? And does it really add to the value of my home or is it just for ambiance?

    Sometimes it’s difficult to quantify the value of a particular upgrade and dimmer switches are one such upgrade. While I can’t quote prices here is a great site that might be able to help you figure out the cost.

    Do they add value? If you were a home buyer out looking at homes and you saw dimmer switches on most of the lights in a particular home wouldn’t you consider this to be a positive? Ok, now how positive? How do you put a dollar figure to the value these dimmer switches add to the home? You really can’t. It’s a personal issue. But it is probably not debatable that most people prefer dimmer switches over standard switches.

Got something to say?
