Does Your Lighting Welcome You Home?

Lighting should make you happy to be in your home.  If your lights are the same basic fixtures that have been in your home since it was built, it is time to update to fixtures that are much more welcoming and suit your personal style.  You can transform your house into the perfect getaway, the hottest party spot, or whatever your heart desires by changing the lighting.  Light can completely change the mood and feel of any room.  How do you want your home to feel?

Ceilings: The 5th Wall

 When working out the lighting design for a room, take a moment to look upward.  There is a vast canvas available that could benefit from your inspiration.  You can add dimension to any room by using color, texture, or shadowing from your light fixtures to accentuate your ceiling.

Stylish Spinners

Ceiling fans used to be boring, only coming in basic white, simple black, and all maintaining an identical shape.  Today's models add glamour to function.  Designs are available now to match every decorating trend.  Ceiling fans provide light, comfort and style, all in one fixture. We offer ceiling fans in every size and decor style, from classic traditional looks to cutting-edge contemporary styles, fans for small rooms and fans for very large rooms. Along with ceiling fans, we also have fan d'liers or fandeliers , which combine the best of chandeliers and ceiling fans!  Let us help you find the fans that best suit your home.

Types of Lighting to Suit Your Needs

What Kind of Lighting is Right For Your Room?

Ambient

Ambient Lighting

Ambient, or general, lighting is the most basic of the 3 types. It provides an area with overall illumination – a comfortable level of brightness without glare.

Ambient lighting can be accomplished with chandeliersceiling or wall-mount fixtures, track or recessed lights, and even table and floor lamps.

Having a central source of ambient light in all rooms is fundamental to a good lighting plan; it’s the base upon which you add all other layers of lighting.


Task

Task Lighting

Task lighting adds brightness to areas of a room where daily activities – like reading, studying, cooking or applying makeup – are performed.

To enhance visual clarity and prevent eyestrain, effective task lighting should be free of distracting glare and shadows.

Great task lighting can be achieved by recessed and track lighting, pendant lighting and specialty lighting, as well as vanity lights and floor, table, and desk lamps.


Accent

Accent Lighting

Accent, or directional, lighting is typically used to highlight certain objects or architectural features, such houseplants, paintings, sculptures, a decorative range hood or carved cabinet doors.

It should always be about three times the general illumination level. Accent lighting should never be the focal point. In fact, it’s meant to work without being seen.

Accent lighting can be provided by recessed and track lighting, chandeliers with dimmer switches, over- and specialty lighting, and wall sconces.

Pendant Perfection

Create a state of suspended animation with posh pendants that add another design dimension to your space. Consider using a single pendant to complete a style statement while accomplishing task illumination over a desk or bedside table. Group a series together to illuminate a larger area such as a kitchen island or an entertaining area.

“I like to see pendants grouped at different heights but close together to feel like a chandelier.

I also love to see pendants hanging singly over a task area.”
