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!

Great service and communication from Westcork. Alan was highly professional and the installation went smoothly. The preparation process they use was helpful, with Alan sending a video discussing the installation plan and what was needed prior to installation. Everything went smoothly and without issue.

I found Westcork Electrical from Google reviews and my experience was just as positive as others - he was super responsive, friendly and helpful, and I found his comprehensive quote process really easy and transparent. He did a combo of small and more intricate work with our place and he took the time and care to explain every aspect of the job in detail, as well as check on a few other little things around the place while he was there. Thanks for a job well done, Alan!
