On TikTok, HGTV’s Nate Berkus demonstrated how a simple light dimmer used on a decorative floor lamp created a more relaxing environment with the touch of a button.
His tip works whether you're looking to control a particular lamp, as he did, or to change up the main lighting in a room; however, you'll need a dimmer switch for the latter.
Dimmer switches will impact a room aesthetically, as you'll have the option to change the primary lighting as well as the decorative lighting.
The ability to adjust the intensity of your lighting is a huge bonus for areas where you need different types of lighting at various points in the day.
For example, you may want your kitchen bright to prepare dinner but dim for a cocktail party. Or amp up the floor lamp when you're reading and then lowering it for movie night.
