When building or remodeling a home, one of the first things on your list is finding new lighting. You might have grand plans for new bedroom lighting, or you may be thinking about adding a dining room or foyer chandelier, but before you can do that, you need to find a reputable lighting showroom to help you. At Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale, we can assist you in creating a comprehensive lighting plan that includes everything from your new pendants lights to the outlets in the wall.
Making an Official Plan
You have a lot of ideas in your head for what you want your new lighting to be, but have you put things down on paper? Working with an interior designer can be the fastest way to create an official plan that has every fixture, switch, and outlet on it. It can be a good idea to find a few ideas for what fixtures you want, because then you can begin placing them in your lighting plan. For example, if you have a large chandelier in the dining room, you’ll want to know where the switch is and how the wall sconces complement the main fixture.
Why Hire a Professional?
It can be easy enough to pick out your new light fixtures, but when it comes time to design a new bedroom or bathroom, you might be at a loss for how everything fits together in the space. If you’re updating your wiring, then you’re likely going to hire a professional electrician, so why not hire a professional designer to handle your new lighting layout? They can help you come up with the ideal design, while taking into account how each fixture will be powered, and where you will need outlets for things like floor and table lamps.
Plan Your Outlets
One of the biggest things that can often be overlooked when planning new lighting is where your current outlets are and where your new outlets will be. New ceiling and wall fixtures will be wired into your home, but outlets are key for lamps and other portable lighting solutions. The last thing you want is to find the perfect floor lamp for a corner of your living room, and then find out that you didn’t add an outlet there in your new plan!
Don’t Forget About Ceiling Fans!
Ceiling fans are a key component of every home in the Scottsdale area, and it’s important not to forget about them when planning your new lighting design. They will help keep your home cool, and they can also provide the perfect lighting solution for your living room or bedroom. If your home could use more ceiling fans, then be sure to include them in your lighting design so that they are properly placed when it comes time to install new fixtures.
If you’re remodeling your home, or you’re starting on a new construction project, then make sure you have the perfect lighting plan. At Hacienda, we can help you choose your new fixtures, and provide professional guidance when you need it.
We look forward to meeting you!
