Should you Get Dimmer Switches?

Dimmer switches give you a lot more possibilities than normal light switches. They are usually fixed to the wall, or can be available in a remote control version as well, and they will allow you to turn the light brightness up and down depending on your preferences. If you choose a dimmer switch, here are some things the bear in mind:

  • They will probably be more expensive. That being said, there are now some very affordable options available.
  • You should probably get them fitted by a professional electrician. Unless you are qualified as an electrician yourself, you should get in someone who can fit them properly for you.
  • They can give you a lot more flexibility. Sometimes, people will fit multiple sets of lights in one room to adjust brightness. Dimmer switches allow you to do this with just one set of lights and one switch. Get a remote control for extra convenience.
