I read the earlier thread and it got me thinking. My house is long with our master bedroom on one end and the kid's rooms on the other end. I have those small 5 watt photo-sensitive night lights creating a path from one end of the house to the other.
Another poster said he keeps his house completely dark with only the outside light coming in. I kinda like the extra light inside so the kids can find me when they have a bad dream, but also I can look down the hall from my dark room and see in the lit hall who/what is coming down the hall. Obviously that reduces my stealth to check out bumps in the night.
Give me your thoughts on this. What do you prefer?
