When the days start getting shorter, the lighting in your home becomes all the more important. If you're returning from a long day at work on a cold, dark evening, you'll be looking forward to getting back to a warm and cosy home. And if you're spending the day at home and it starts to go dark in the middle of the afternoon, the right lighting can work wonders for your sense of wellbeing.
However, in large houses with multiple levels in particular, it can be a challenge to get the lighting right across the entire space.
For example, if you forget to switch off the light in one room on the top floor and you've already made your way back downstairs before you realise, it's incredibly annoying to have to climb all the way back up to the top. Nor does it make much sense to switch on the lights manually as you go upstairs – even if you do prefer to walk around in a warm and well-lit house rather than passing entire floors that are dark and unlit.
