1. Be Sure to Check the Lighting in a Prospective Home

    When buying a new home, you take the time to look at the walls, the floors, and the ceilings, thinking about how you could fill the space and how you and your family could live in the house. You also inspect the outside, making sure the foundation is level and that there are no problems with the roof. Before closing, it’s important to make sure the property is in good condition, and while the of…Read More

  7. Wall Lights Can Fit into All Three Categories

    We’ve discussed the three categories of lighting before – ambient, accent, and task – and most fixtures fit into one or two of them. Pendant lights can be task or accent fixtures, while semi-flush mounts generally only fall into ambient lighting. However, wall lights, such as sconces and swing-arm lamps, can fall into any of the three. At Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale, we love helping peop…Read More

  8. Modernizing Your Home Lighting

At Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale, we love meeting with homeowners who want to add m…Read More

  10. Creating the Best Front Porch Lighting

    We wrote last time about pendant lighting for your patio, and since that post focused on your home’s backyard, we thought this time we’d focus on the front of the house. The front porch is a unique place, and it’s the first thing people see when they pull up to your house. It can be where you spend summer evenings talking with friends, and it’s perhaps the first outside spot you decorate f…Read More
