5 Best Locations for a Dimmer Install

Living Room

It is a great place to start if you want to give dimmers a try. Use your dimmer while you watch your favorite TV show or lower the lighting to transform your living room into your own movie theater. Because the living room is a common space for entertaining, you should consider smart dimmer lights as well. Changing the palette and playing with color can add ambiance.

Dining Room

A delicious meal begins with the eyes. It's essential to have proper lighting in the dining room. Nothing sets the tone for a romantic dinner date or a cozy gathering with friends like perfect lighting. Use your dimmer to enhance the ambiance for your dining experience.


While full light may be needed for some tasks in the kitchen, the ability to turn the lights to a lower level can come in handy, especially for early morning coffee-making or for late-night snacking.


In order to keep your bedroom a place for rest, incorporating a dimmer light can inform your body that the day is winding down and encourage better sleeping habits.


Being able to dim the lights first thing in the morning will allow you to start your daily routine without bright light assaulting your eyes, and provide an easier transition from sleeping to waking. Also, adding a dimmer can give the effect of candlelight without introducing a fire hazard. For better relaxation at home, lower the lights before taking a luxurious bath.

Once you get accustomed to dimmers and the control and flexibility they provide, you’ll want them in every room! It’s surprising how taking adjusting a small component, like lighting, can add a whole new perspective to a room. If you are interested in installing dimmers to any rooms in your home, book Westcork Electrical today!

Alan was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, taking the time to answer my questions and make sure that I understood the work he was going to do. Most of all, I appreciated being able to send through photos of the exhaust fan that was having issues, to make sure that Alan was able to assist with it. Alan was punctual, friendly and really happy to assist. I'm really happy with the new bathroom exhaust fans and would highly recommend Westcork Electrical

From our very first enquiry through to completion of work, Alan has been a pleasure to deal with. Our requirements were easily understood and great suggestions made along the way to meet our needs. Alan communicates well at every step in the process, and keeps to schedule -he is a pleasure to have working in the house. Needless to say I cannot commend WestCork enough to anyone requiring a skilled, professional and pleasant domestic electrician.Phil, Abbotsford
