Thinking about an update?




Listen up, brighter isn’t always better


Spring is a time of renewal. That’s true in nature and often with our man-made surroundings as well. If planning a home renovation, it’s best to think through the project from start to finish and consult with a professional before purchasing any lighting products. The experts at an ALA-member showroom can make sure you get the right type of lighting and even help you develop a lighting plan – a must before starting any home project.


To help you prepare to visit your nearby lighting showroom, take time to listen to a new podcast from the American Lighting Association featuring Laurie Gross, CLC, president of Gross Electric; and Bob Warmbold, CLC, owner of Accent Lighting. They talk about the importance of getting the right type of lighting for different areas of your home. It’s helpful if a customer brings pictures of their existing space as well as examples of fixtures and styles they like.


Sponsored by Hinkley and Kichler, the “Brighter Isn’t Always Better” podcast will put you on the right path to meet all your expectations for a beautiful and functional new space. Listen here, and find more information online at
