Love Your Lighting

28th Jan 2022 Staff

As your lighting showroom in Urbandale, Spectrum Lighting & Interiors wants to help you find light fixtures that you absolutely love. You may not think about your lighting being a design feature of your home, but it can be so much more than just a functional piece that helps you brighten each room. If you’re thinking about updating your lights, or you need help picking out fixtures for a new home build, visit our store today!


It may be no secret that you’re not a fan of every light fixture in your home. Perhaps the previous owner had much different tastes than you did, but you didn’t want to deal with the hassle of replacing that outdated dining room chandelier or living room ceiling fan. By working with our expert team, you can find new lighting styles that you’ll most definitely love.


Another way to have lighting you love is to make it easier to control. Dimmers and switches are integral for every room, whether you want to lower the lights in the bedroom or create the perfect ambience in your dining room. Smart lighting controls are also an option for many fixtures, and you’ll love being able to turn the lights on or off through your phone or a control panel in each room.


Every room needs layers of lighting. The three layers are ambient, accent, and task lighting, and there should be a combination of the three in each room. In the kitchen, for example, there should be ambient lighting from the ceiling, accent lighting from the island pendants, and task lighting from the under cabinet fixtures. With the right layers, you will love how well your lighting brightens the room and makes it more functional and comfortable.


Your light fixtures need the proper bulbs, and the type of bulb will depend on the location in your home. Your bathroom lights need to be between 2700K and 3000K on the Kelvin scale to provide the right color temperature for your vanity and overhead lighting. You’ll need a different color temperature for your kitchen, and each bulb will need the right amount of lumens. Our lighting team can help you find the ideal bulbs for any fixture in your home.

If you don’t love your lighting, let us help you find options that you do. We have chandeliers, sconces, lamps, and much more, and we know you’ll discover something you want to add to your home. Visit our lighting store in Urbandale today, or contact us online with your questions!
