Brighten All Your Spaces With Home Lighting Fixtures
One of the most noticeable aspects of any home is how well-lit the spaces are. Have you ever walked into a house and felt that a particular area was dark? This kind of feeling makes rooms look smaller and causes furniture styles to take a backseat to the poor lighting quality. The good news is it’s simple to fix the lighting situation in your home with the right type of home lighting fixtures from our lighting stores in Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Berks County PA.
Everyone at our family-owned and -operated furniture store knows that we’re just one of the Harrisburg lighting companies you have to choose from in this area. That’s why we work hard to provide you with the best selection of lighting options for your home. It’s also why we’ll get to know you and your aesthetic before we make any recommendations.
Our goal isn’t to sell you a lamp or light fixture — it’s to shine a light on a relationship that we hope will last for generations.
Where Could Your Home Use a Little Brightening?
Before you stop by a Davids showroom location in Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg or Berks County, take a little tour of your home. Make note of any spaces that could use better lighting. Having operated a furniture and lighting company in Harrisburg for more than 45 years, we know it can be difficult to take an objective look at your home, especially if it’s been decorated the same way for many years.
For this reason, it may be helpful if you ask a trusted friend or relative to tour your house with you and provide insight about which areas may benefit from some additional lighting. Some of the most popular rooms or areas that are often dark, especially when the sun goes down, include:
The Kitchen – The kitchen is really at the heart of your home, but that doesn’t mean you have sufficient lighting. If your kitchen area hasn’t been updated in many years, you may be in need of extra lighting. Even a modest table lamp can help bring all your kitchen workspaces into focus! Two to four pendant lights hanging over an island, or an updated chandelier in your breakfast nook, can make a big difference.
The Living Room – You spend a lot of time in your living room or living spaces such as the family room or den. This sometimes leads you to forget that you could use a bit of extra lighting. For instance, does a corner of the room seem shadowy? Add a floor lamp, and see the difference that it can make!
The Bedroom – Most people want their bedrooms to be spaces where the light can be dimmed, but that doesn’t mean the bedroom has to be dark during the day or at moments other than bedtime. Well-placed table lamps and floor lamps can create areas of brightness. If your bedroom is large enough, why not purchase a floor lamp and cozy chair for a wonderfully comfortable reading spot?
The Foyer and Hallways – Your foyer and entryways should always be as well-lit as they can be. This can be easily remedied with wall lamps and chandeliers. If you already have a chandelier and it’s out-of-date or not your style, check out the amazing variety of chandeliers at Davids. From contemporary to vintage-inspired, we have every chandelier to complete the look of your home.
The Bathroom – As you know, we’ve operated furniture and lighting stores in Harrisburg, PA and the surrounding areas for over four decades. During that time, one of the most common complaints we’ve heard when it comes to lighting is having insufficient or inappropriately placed lighting in the bathroom.
Adding Light Can Make Your Home Safer
Although Davids is in the business of home beautification, it’s important to remember that better lighting is also conducive to safer living. Dark homes are homes that aren’t as secure. Keep this in mind, and make sure you’ve done your best to add light in all those places of your home where it’s most important, including hallways, stairways, basements, laundry rooms and entrances/exits.
A lack of light or poorly placed lighting fixtures in the bathroom can make even simple daily tasks, such as applying makeup or shaving, difficult to do. Additionally, if you have an aging person in your home, they can be more susceptible to falling and injury if the lighting is poor.
