September is nearly over, which means that before long, the new year will arrive. If you’ve been thinking about ways to transform or reimagine the rooms in your home, then the lighting is a great place to start. With a new lighting design, you can change how a room looks, feels, and functions. At Whitmer’s Lighting in Akron and Westlake, our showrooms are stocked with amazing fixtures that will look great in your home.

Where to Start?

We wrote previously about lighting goals, and those can be a good place to start. You might be looking for more light in the bedroom or bathroom, while also thinking about less light in the living room or dining room. If you’re making structural changes to a room, such as taking out a wall or adding new cabinets, then integrating new lighting can be the perfect starting point for your new design.

New Fixtures Bring New Looks

If your home had a previous owner, then it’s likely that their tastes and touches are still evident in certain rooms. They may have installed a dining room chandelier that they absolutely love, but that you find absolutely appalling. If ornate crystals aren’t your style, then let us help you find a sleek, modern chandelier that fits your tastes and your budget. A new light fixture will always bring a new look to a room, especially if it’s the central lighting solution.

Building a New Home

Perhaps you’ve begun the process of building a new home, and the time has come to choose your new lighting options. If your house is scheduled to be finished around the first of the year, then you don’t want to waste any time. Choosing lights for each room doesn’t have to be hard, and our expert staff will gladly walk you through the steps of picking the right fixtures. You may have an idea of what you want each room to look and feel like, and we can translate that into deciding on fixtures that fit your vision.

Get Started Today

The end of the year will fly by quickly, so if you want to have new lights installed by January, then visit one of our northeast Ohio lighting showrooms today. We’re always ready to help each customer look through multiple options, and we’ll gladly explain the benefits and features of each fixture. We carry the top lighting brands, including Access, Hinkley, and Murray Feiss. If you have something in particular you’re looking for, such as a certain sconce for the bathroom, or a pendant light for the kitchen, then we’ll do our very best to locate it for you. Feel free to bring in any designs you’ve drawn or sketched out, and please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have about lighting design.

Our Akron location is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.. Our Westlake store is open the same hours as Akron on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, but only stays open until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
