November is nearly over, and before you know it, 2018 will be here and we’ll all be starting a brand new year. If you have plans to redesign or renovate your house next year, now is the time to begin thinking about the carpeting, the blinds, the lighting, and more. At Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale, we love helping homeowners find the perfect fixtures for every room in their house. If you’re using the holiday break to come up with a new lighting design, visit our showroom for expert assistance!
We’ve said it before, but the best way to go about updating your lighting is to move room by room through the house; that way, you can see what needs to be changed and where it will be best to add new lights.
The foyer or entryway is the first space people see when they come in your home, and you want it to be well lit and easy to navigate. If you feel that your entrance is a bit drab or feels dingy, why not take this opportunity to finally install that perfect chandelier? New ambient lighting mixed with accent fixtures such as wall sconces can revolutionize your foyer.
The Living Room
If you’re hosting holiday parties this year, then your living room is going to be used quite often. If guests comment about your lighting, or you notice that certain spots seem darker than they should, come to Hacienda and we’ll help you find new table lamps, floor lamps, and more. Your living room should be illuminated enough that people can see properly when they’re sitting down and talking, but you should also be able to control your lights with zone switches and dimmers.
Your bedroom is where you go to retreat from the hubbub of life, and you might spend a few hours watching TV or reading before you fall asleep. Your bedroom lighting needs to be versatile, but you also want to make sure you have the right bulbs in each fixture. Light that is too bright can ruin the ambiance of the room, and our expert staff can help you find the perfect options that fit your needs.
The Dining Room
Besides the living room, the dining room gets the most use during the holiday season. You might have to break out the table leaf and add a few more chairs to fit everyone, and once you do, you may notice that the lighting is a bit off. Perhaps the fixture above the table needs to be updated, or maybe the room could benefit from a few sconces on either side of the china cabinet. Whatever the case may be, Hacienda can help you find the right options.
You use the bathrooms in your home every single day, and broken fixtures or lighting that’s too dim can quickly ruin your morning or evening. Updating your vanity lights and adding new fixtures above the shower or tub can greatly improve any bathroom space, and the right style can transform the space into that spa-like room you’ve always wanted.
Winter is often a good time for updating your interior lighting, but winter in Scottsdale often means that you’re still spending quite a bit of time outside. If you’ve been looking at your outdoor lighting and thinking about how it could be better, take some time over the next few weeks to put together a plan. When you’re ready, we can show you a number of landscape, porch, and other outdoor fixture options, and help you narrow down your final choices.
Every new year brings with it new opportunities, and if you’ve been thinking about how your home or yard could look and function better, stop by Hacienda today. We would love nothing more than to see your new lighting design, or help you come up with one that works for you and your family. You might want to focus on one or two rooms, or you may want to tackle your entire property. Whatever the case may be, we will work with you until you’re satisfied that you have the right fixtures for the job.
