Every year, the holidays arrive before we know it. Once summer ends and we dress up for Halloween, it’s time to give thanks and exchange gifts. As the calendar gets shorter, families often find they have been too busy to focus on their own needs. Yet ask yourself one question: Is your home ready for the holidays? Whether you’ve been meaning to update your lighting or home hardware, it’s the perfect time for home improvement. What upgrades can you make before 2019?
Indoor & Outdoor Lighting
When guests arrive at your house for a holiday gathering, how is the landscape lit? If your property lacks pathway lights or you have one porch light for general illumination, you risk slip and fall injuries. Now that Daylight Saving Time has ended, it gets darker earlier and our outdoor lighting needs to accommodate this shift. At Connecticut Lighting Centers, we have a variety of wall lanterns, flood lights, post lanterns and more to provide your guests with the exterior lighting needed to stay safe.
On the other hand, when your family and friends gather at the holiday table, everything should be well-lit. From the dinnerware down to the tablecloth details, a beautiful and functional light fixture can bring your dining room to life. We carry chandeliers, pendants, wall sconces and more in a variety of styles and finishes to complement your existing décor.
When was the last time you upgraded your dinnerware? Oftentimes, couples keep the dinner plates and serving sets they received as wedding gifts to pass onto their children. While this is a great tradition, you can also have dining sets and accessories you use for special occasions, like the holidays. At Connecticut Lighting Centers, many customers are surprised to know we carry tableware, including:
- Ice Buckets
- Cheese Boards
- Serving Trays
- Serving Bowls
- Cocktail Shakers
We also carry home accents that make great hostess gifts! Michael Aram, one of our trusted brand partners, has a beautiful line of handcrafted ornaments, wine stoppers, candleholders and more inspired by nature. We can order anything you want from their catalog!
