Dallas, Texas (American Lighting Association), May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Is your home in need of a lighting update? Does the idea of selecting a new fixture or simply switching to LED bulbs seem overwhelming? If the answer is yes to either question, or if you want to see the latest lighting styles and innovations, pick up a copy of Lighting magazine.
The new 2018 issue of Lighting, from the American Lighting Association (ALA) and Better Homes and Gardens, is now on newsstands and full of inspiring tips, trends and answers to questions most often asked about home lighting. While highlighting fashion-forward lighting design, the new issue is also an educational guide, making it enlightening as well as inspirational for homeowners.
“We’re excited about this year’s edition of Lighting, says Karman Hotchkiss, executive director of Meredith Corporation’s special interest media. “This issue calls out tons of styles and lighting trends, showing readers lots of reasons they should update their home with fresh fixtures.”
With hundreds of inspiring images and design ideas, Lighting is a valuable tool for anyone thinking about a home update, whether it will be a small change or major renovation. Lighting provides the inspiration for creating a beautifully lit space by bringing together ideas from highly respected lighting designers along with pictures of the newest, most stylish and diverse fixtures from top manufacturers.
The tips and articles, such as “How to visit a lighting showroom,” help homeowners prepare for their visit by pointing out appropriate questions to ask and helpful measurements to bring, which will lead to a more productive showroom and buying experience.
By asking the right questions up front, homeowners can avoid unexpected and unnecessary expenses. Most people remodel infrequently, so it is imperative to select the right type and style of fixtures that will remain appealing and functional for many years. Most of the time, it takes a trained professional to know what will effectively create a desired look.
It is best to make an appointment before going to a lighting showroom. Many consumers prepare by marking their favorite fixtures in Lighting magazine ahead of time. A little preparation will make the showroom experience most enjoyable and productive.
Consumers may pick up a free copy of Lighting at their local ALA-member lighting showroom. A digital copy of the magazine is available on the ALA website at Ideas.Lighting. The magazine is also available for sale on preferred newsstands. To find more lighting tips or a list of ALA lighting retail showrooms, visit ALALighting.com.
