Guide to Stylish Home Lighting Ideas
Looking for a way to light up your home?
Aside from traditional overhead lights and table lamps, good lighting can really change the feeling of a room. You can take your living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom from dark and dingy to cozy and welcoming easily with the right lighting.
- Industrial lighting – Edison light bulbs are making a comeback! Industrial lighting can also look like pipework wall lights, or reused bulkheads. This rustic look fits in with almost any décor.
- Neon accent lighting – Looking for a fun way to add some light to your media room or kitchen? Neon lights are a cool way to make a statement. If bold, neon colors aren’t your style, you could use a white light – this will still stand out but won’t be overwhelming.
- Pendant lights – Pendant lights look great in any kitchen and there are so many styles to choose from. Using pendants above a kitchen island can create soft pools of light for a more ambient effect, and with so many finishes, you can really make your lights complement the décor of your kitchen.
- Wall lights – If you’re short on space, wall lights are a great way to incorporate some lighting, especially in the bedroom. No room for a bedside table? No problem! Wall lights can provide reading light, and free up space for more important furniture pieces.
- LED strip lights – Strip lights are a viral trend right now, but really do add to the overall ambiance of a room. Try using them behind the TV for a cozy backlit effect, or with tray ceilings or wall recesses. Since these strips are LED and often battery operated, you don’t have to worry about overheating or wires.
Great lighting in your home can highlight design elements, showcase art or photos, and just make a space feel more inviting.
You can pair the right lighting design with your home’s color scheme and finishes to create a seamless look that will make your home look like it came right out of the pages of your favorite architectural magazine!

We came to love our team! Frank became part of the family. Every day the house was cleaned and organized. And Mary had great design ideas and listened to our passions to create the best spa experience.

Ron and Melissa are amazing and Cy became part of our family. Our home looks amazing because of Alpha!
Daryl & Amy, Ann Arbor, MI
The whole team was approachable and responsive to my emails and questions. I would recommend this company for any project, big or small.
Louise, Ann Arbor, MI
The deciding factor in choosing to work with Alpha was their confidence in the project and completion time line. They have done other renovations for us and it was a positive experience once again.
Debbie, Chelsea, MI
We felt very comfortable when we initially visited Alpha. We felt the staff was open, honest, and wouldn't mislead us.
Jeffrey & Kim, Ypsilanti, MI
Alpha Design's priorities are happy customers!

Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!
Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI
We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!

We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
