How much lighting does one home need?

When I was house hunting, I saw a lot of houses that were too dark and would need extra lighting. I felt like iI was in a mausoleum, the one house was so dark. Even with all the oddities of the houses, there was one that stood out in my mind, and I will never forget. This house had so much lighting that it was blinding. The owners had recessed lighting along the walls, which was really nice, but there were chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, sconce lights in the doorways and extra lighting over all the fixtures. I liked a lot of lighting over my kitchen counters, but there was so much lighting that I had to wear sunglasses while inside the house. I looked at my fiance and asked how much lighting does one home need? This may have been nice if they had little natural light, but there was natural lighting coming from the skylights in every room, and there were windows everywhere. This house must have been an electrician’s dream come true. The light bulbs alone would cost a fortune to replace. I asked why they were selling the house, and the woman told me they were getting older. They had no grandkids that visited, and she couldn’t take care of the house. When she told me her husband was an electrician, it was easy to understand why there was so much lighting in the home. As an electrician, he had to keep busy, even if he was retired. We didn’t buy the house, but it was worth the experience just to go see it.
