Starts with the Right Lighting

Re-creating your dream-home starts with the right lighting. If you have ever hired an interior decorator, you know that they look first at the “permanent” features of the room: the walls and the fixtures. Painting the walls is a good first step. Now let's take a look at your fixtures. Close your eyes. Imagine yourself as a first-time guest in your house. Now open your eyes. Do your light fixtures impress you? Do they take your breath away? Or do they bore you?

Feel Good about your Lighting

Imagine if you were lucky enough to look at your lighting every day and get that tingly feeling of pride mixed with satisfaction of knowing your good taste is on display for every guest that your home. If you are one of those people, CONGRATULATIONS! You have chosen your lighting wisely. If not, keep reading. knows you can join this elite group for less than you thought possible.

More Affordable than you think

Lighting that can take your breath away doesn't require paying a high priced interior decorator or buying from a high margin showroom. It is actually within your reach. Plus, not only will you get to enjoy your lighting for the rest of your life, the perfect lighting will increase your home's value and you will recoup your investment when it is time to sell.

Not Your Fault

If your lighting is not everything you dreamed of, don't fret. It'is likely not your fault. You see, home builders usually cut corners and install the lowest-priced, poorest-quality light fixtures to increase their profit. Unless you specifically selected each fixture with your builder, you probably are living with dated, poor quality light fixtures. Plus with all the cheap lighting that big-box stores have sold over the last 20 years, even if you have tried upgrading on a budget your choices were likely limited.

Finding Lighting your guests will Envy and talk about

If you have read this far, you are 90% there. We know the goal is to find new lighting that will give you 100% more compliments, GUARANTEED. Plus you are already on and we only sell lighting styles and brands that we would be proud to have in our own home. A lot of the remaining selection process is personal choice.

Let's Get Started

So, now that we know the destination, how do we get there? Its as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Take Inventory- Make a list of the lighting you have by room. Decide which fixtures you still love and which need to be replaced. Remember, if your budget is limited, you don't need to replace everything at once. In fact you may get better deals and make better choices if you work one room at a time. But because you have your list prepared, you are ready to jump when good deals appear.

  2.  Gather Information- Now that you have your shopping list, you can start looking for ideas. You can start browsing by category now at LampsUSA. You will also want some expert advice to help you make the best decisions.

  3. Get Help- Everyone needs a little advice or at least confirmation that their choices make sense. When you are ready to talk, we would love to hear from you. Our lighting consultants would be happy to hear about the home of your dreams and to help you get there. Please call toll free at 1-877-526-7247. We may have to schedule a free consultation.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
