November is only a few days away, and with it comes the beginning of a busy holiday season. You may have already begun planning your Thanksgiving feast, or you may have already booked your tickets to fly and see family in December. Whatever the case may be, you know that there is going to be a lot on your plate, both literally and figuratively. If you’re going to be the host or hostess for the holidays this year, it’s important to make sure your lighting is up to the challenge. At Hacienda in Scottsdale, we can help you find the right fixtures, bulbs, and more so that your holiday season is merry and bright.
New Kitchen Lighting
Chances are you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the kitchen over the next couple of months. You might be making several dozen of your grandma’s famous holiday cookies, or you might be helping the kids make decorations and cards at the kitchen island. When people are over to visit this season, there’s a good possibility that everyone will gather in the kitchen – after all, that’s where the coffee, cider, and cookies are made!
If the overhead lighting in your kitchen seems too dim, it might be time to upgrade it. You need to be able to see as you cook, bake, and clean, and you want the space to be inviting when you have guests. A bright and busy kitchen can be the perfect place for holiday fun!
New Living Room Lighting
Your home may soon be filled with people and presents, and both of those will most likely end up in the living room at some point. If you celebrate Christmas, your tree is probably in the living room, and it’s important to consider how its strings of lights and decorations interact with the other lights in the space.
People will also be sitting and conversing in the living room during this time of year, and it’s important that they’re able to see the others in the room, as well as the treats and hors d’oeuvres on their plate. A new lamp or other accent lighting can do wonders for a common seating area.
Guest Bedroom Lighting
You look forward all year to having friends and family come to visit for the holidays, and now is the best time to check your guest bedroom lighting. A bulb may have burned out sometime in July, and even though you haven’t gotten around to changing it, you still have some time before people arrive to stay with you. If you haven’t gone into the guest bedroom in a few months, other than to store things in the closet, take some time to check the fixtures, the bulbs, and the switches so that everything is working properly before the room is occupied.
You want your home to be comfortable and inviting all year round, but especially so during the holidays. If you have worn fixtures that look outdated, or there doesn’t seem to be enough light in a certain area, come to Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale today and we’ll help you find the ideal options for your home!
