Modern Lighting Fixtures for Every Space In Your Home

Whether you're using it as a decorative element or as a purely functional source of illumination, lighting can—and should!—be found in many areas of the home. Add a chandelier above a dining room table, pendants or island lighting to a kitchen, install an under cabinet lighting system to brighten countertops and use a combination of floor and table lamps and track lighting to accentuate specific areas of a room. Bathrooms benefit from the addition of wall sconces and bath light bars, while the right home office lighting will optimize productivity with the perfect modern desk lamp. In smaller, low-ceiling spaces like closets and hallways, consider recessed lighting or flush mounts and, finally, keep your deck and patio well-lit with our assortment of outdoor lighting, including path lights, outdoor wall sconces and landscape lighting.

How to Choose the Best Lighting For Your Home

With a substantial range of sizes, shapes, finishes, and colors to choose from, selecting the right lighting can be an overwhelming decision. Begin by determining the function of the lighting you need: Is it for general light in dim areas of the home, or do you need focused, directional lighting to aid you in certain tasks? Once you identify why you need a light fixture, then you will want to measure the space where it will be placed. Review the sizing dimensions of the lighting you are interested in to best gauge its height, diameter and weight. You should also check out the required bulb type for the fixture to ensure you are prepared with the right light bulbs.
