Holiday Lighting Safety Tips

The holidays just wouldn’t feel so magical without the special sparkle that festive lighting sheds on the busy short days of the season. Be it the kids getting excited by the glittering Santa sleigh (complete with reindeer and a pile of presents!) that lights up a neighbour’s roof or the adults basking in the indoor twinkle at an evening party, we all love the wonder and ambiance that seasonal lighting brings.

But poor holiday lighting choices can pose serious safety risks. No worries though, this tip list is all you need to keep your home and family safe.

Install of two large light fixtures by Brennan and another worker. The service was excellent. Polite, speedy, and efficient.

— Alex via Google Review

We originally called Octavio to get a bid for a chandelier install. The install was tricky as it was about 20 feet high in a narrow foyer. Octavio was the most thoughtful in his bid as he addressed doing a quality install, while also ensuring any solution was safe for the installers and also would not do any damage to the home. On the day of the install, the team showed up early, prepped the work area and delivered a flawless install of the light. We would highly recommend Wirechief Electric due to our wonderful service experience with Octavio and his team!

The service was very efficient and thorough. The electrician helped us a lot to find the right lights for our needs. I would recommend this company any time.

Octavio and his team were professional, the project was completed well within the time frame quoted and performed a meticulous job. He updated us timely on the status of the work. Very satisfied with the service.

I was very unhappy with the old track-lighting in our house and Octavio did a walk-through to suggest possible alternatives. Once we had a plan, he removed the tracks and did all the re-wiring necessary to hang some great new lights. I am extremely happy with the result, and with WireChief’s service. Octavio was always on time and courteous; he let me know ahead of time what was going to happen, and when he encountered obstacles he discussed them with me and offered solutions. I would recommend WireChief to anyone.

Considering the high percentage of time we spend in our home offices it makes sense to create a setting with optimal lighting.

Here’s what you need to know:

5 Things to Know about Recessed Lighting

No matter how well-designed your home, bad lighting can easily kill the mood. Recessed pot lights are a great option that when used strategically can effectively remedy that—but they can turn your ceiling into Swiss cheese and shroud your quarters in dull light.

The goal of recessed pot lighting is to not only add visibility but also interest and ambiance to the environment. To that end, layering your lighting is vital: Combine recessed pot lighting with a variety of other types (such as decorative pendants, table lamps, sconces, or candles) to make rooms feel well balanced and inviting. This applies to both modern spaces, where recessed lighting is most often used, and to more traditional settings, such as old townhouses, where mindfully placed recessed lights can work wonders.

How to Layer Lighting in your Home

Layer-Your-Lighting

Lighting a home might not be quite as simple as you’d think—but it doesn’t have to be overly complicated, either. Comfort, utility, and beauty can be obtained by using layered lighting: Ambient light to provide general illumination and repose, task lighting for utilitarian jobs and accent lighting to adorn any room. Layering your lighting just means going beyond the basic overhead general lighting and purposefully arranging different types of lighting to form a cohesive and functional light-scape. Here’s how!
