Choosing the Best Decorative Lighting for Your Home

Lighting is functional, but it’s also an essential part of your home’s overall aesthetic. It sets the mood, helps define spaces, and is often the overlooked element that takes your design to the next level.

Fortunately, Grand Rapids Lighting, the largest lighting showroom in West Michigan, offers expert guidance by way of its highly experienced staff. From sconces and chandeliers to table lamps and outdoor lighting, the Grand Rapids showroom selection includes lighting products to fit every style and budget.

Here are three main factors to consider before you meet with our team for a design consultation:

Determine Your Style

Is it midcentury modern, coastal, or farmhouse chic? Knowing your home’s overall look or desired aesthetic will help determine what type of decorative lighting you need. Not sure where to start? Take to Pinterest to discover which style resonates most with you.

Decide What Lighting You Need

Decorative lighting, or accent lighting, is like jewelry for your home. Its sole purpose can be to embellish a room, or like picture lights and track lighting, it can help to highlight a special focal point.

Learn About Layouts

Deciding where and how to place your decorative lighting sources varies from room to room. In your living room, place floor lamps in dark corners and table lamps on buffets or other huge furniture pieces. Putting hanging pendants or chandeliers above the kitchen island or dining table is an ideal way to accentuate what’s already in the space.

For decorative lighting in the bedroom, we recommend table lamps on nightstands and dressers. Finally, in the often-overlooked bathroom space an overhead light source above the tub can enhance what would otherwise be an average-looking space.

The expert staff at Grand Rapids Lighting is happy to offer free design consultations and help guide customers through its huge warehouse. We offer 100% customer satisfaction, so you can always be sure you’ll find what you want in stock. Give us a call or stop in to get started on enhancing your home with lighting.
