Since your kitchen is one of the most used rooms of your home, you want to be sure it’s properly lit. The purpose of your kitchen lights should be for both safety and ambience. Lighting can also work as decoration. The right kind of lighting can have you cooking and entertaining in style. There’s certain points around your kitchen that will be vital for you to light for a smooth functioning room. We call these “key lighting locations.” You’ll want to focus on these. There’s also certain types of lighting fixtures that work better in different types of kitchen setups. Specialty lighting could work wonders in a kitchen that has hard to illuminate areas. Hanging lights, for example are great over counter areas that are in the center of the room. Also, hanging lights work well over the areas where you prep and cook and other lights don’t reach. For safety reasons, you want to be certain that these areas are particularly well-lit. Dining in the dark isn’t the best approach for having guests over! You also don’t want to cook in the dark, since that has obvious safety concerns. There’s 4 main types of lighting that you should have in your kitchen. These include: task lighting, ambient lighting, accent lighting and decorative lighting. Task You want task lighting to deter shadows and illuminate work areas adequately. This would be the first type of lighting you’d think of when designing a kitchen because it has a certain function. Ambient This type of lighting is more of an indirect kind of lighting and is important for a decorative touch in your kitchen. Think of these lights as illuminating the edges of the room. Accent Accent lighting is still not very common in kitchens, but it can be an asset to your design and decor. Accent lighting allows you to highlight a focal point in the kitchen such as a piece of artwork. This type of lighting can include track lighting, directional lighting or recessed lighting. Decorative This types of lighting would include chandeliers and hanging pendants. Decorative lighting is more about the fixture snd less about the function of the light. Lighting Design Types Hanging Lights Hanging lights are a particularly versatile option since they come in many styles. from modern to classic designs, there’s a type of hanging light that can suit your kitchen style and bring your kitchen to another level. Under Cabinet Lights Under cabinet lights are another type of lighting that you should consider for your kitchen. These lights work more than just decoration. These lights give you additional lighting throughout the kitchen in places where overhead lighting may not reach. You’ll be able to see what’s on the counter no matter what time of day it is. These provide task lighting as well as a secondary form of ambient lighting. No matter what style lighting you choose in your kitchen, make sure it suits you. Authentic style in your home is the best way to give it a “homey” feeling!

There are so many factors that go into buying a home. How much money do you have saved up? What is your debt amount? Hw much money do you make each month? Can you afford the neighborhood that you’d like to live in? All of these questions are swirling around the minds of all first-time homebuyers. Did you know that how long you have been at a job is just as important as your income as a factor in getting approved for a mortgage? 


Your ability to repay is why the lender is looking at so many different numbers and factors about your financial situation. Employment overall plays a large stake in the mortgage application. Lenders will look at your past employment history along with the job that your currently have. They are also concerned with your future employment status. Your lender will get an idea of your overall plan for your career and employment through looking at your history. 


As a first-time homebuyer, you most likely don’t have the employment history of more seasoned homebuyers. Generally, most people who are buying a home for the first time are pretty young in their careers. As a rule of thumb, lenders will look at your employment history over the past two years. The lender wants to see your industry focus. Maybe you have stuck with one career direction, or maybe you have hopped around a bunch. As a hint, jumping around from job to job and field to field doesn’t look very good to mortgage lenders. Job floaters tend to appear as if they have no plans for the future. 


Good Career Moves


Staying a software engineer, but moving from the medical industry to the financial industry is an acceptable and smart move in the eyes of lenders. Yet, leaving your stable job in accounting to pursue a career in acting would not be looked upon favorably in the eyes of a mortgage lender.


It doesn’t matter how much money you have saved up, often, without employment history, a lender may not consider you as a dependable buyer. Your lender wants to see that your income is stable for a period of at least three year’s time.


Income Matters 


You won’t have the same work history as a first time homebuyer as you would if you were a bit more seasoned. When lenders look at your income history, not having a lot of work history can be a detriment to many factors. If your income is an annual salary, for example, your lender will divide that salary by 12 in order to get a monthly income. If you haven’t been at the job for a full year or took a pay cut during times of training, those numbers will be affected.


For hourly employees, overtime may be a problem as it may not be factored in with the equation if there isn’t a history of at least two years on the job. 


While it isn’t impossible to buy a home with a short employment history, it’s advisable to wait until you have some significant time under your belt before you dive into the home buying process.


Boston is the city that many people access to enter one of the six New England states.
