It's As Easy as 1-2-3!
- What’s Your Style?First, start where interior designers do: assess your personal style and the kind of environment you live in. Your home should be a reflection of your individual taste and personality while merging together the lighting, furniture, art and accessories you love. We suggest that you begin by choosing a lighting style category first so you are starting with the right silhouette from the get-go. Take a look at our products by style (link to Style categories) to get started.
- What Type of Lighting Do You Need?Secondly, think about your lighting needs and the requirements of a particular space. Powder room lighting, for example, will be different from kitchen lighting. So take the time to assess and research what combination of ambient, accent, task and decorative light you may need and the fixtures that will best accomplish it.
- The Finish LineLastly, consider the finish. Hinkley offers over 100 different finishes to complement a variety of interior and exterior lighting styles as well as appliances and plumbing. Don't be afraid to mix and match if it all flows together. A finish can make a strong design statement on its own, so if you aren't sure of the exact shade or tone check it out in person at a showroom or request a sample.
Enjoy our video on how to select lighting (LMS Find Lighting You Will Love) and see how fun the process can be. Once you've narrowed down your options, we recommend visiting a local lighting showroom. This will let you view the fixture first hand, get comfortable with the quality and allows you to work with a lighting expert, ensuring you make the right selection for your home, your style and your lighting application. A showroom is also the perfect place to pick up your copy of Hinkley's latest catalogs to take home and peruse, if that’s your cup of tea!
