A great lighting strategy can do so much more than create a safe, inviting atmosphere in your home. With the right lighting scheme, you can dramatically enhance your home’s aesthetics (and value) by accentuating its best features, and de-emphasizing “problem areas.” Here, the world renowned lighting designers from Murray Feiss offer their exclusive tips and tricks!
Creative Ceiling Solutions
- To make low ceilings seem higher, bounce light from up-lighting fixtures (like torchiere-style wall sconces) to visually “raise” ceilings.
- To highlight dramatic Cathedral or beamed ceilings: Use wall sconces to cast uplight, emphasizing beamed ceilings.
- To disguise rough or patchy surfaces, keep lighting off of the ceiling by using only downlighting. Imperfections in a surface will be less noticeable without direct light shining on them. Beautiful, decorative fixtures (such as chandeliers) can also serve as alternate focal points.
Accent Lighting Tips
- Highlight textured surfaces for a fascinating look. Whether it’s a tile
- backsplash or a stone fireplace, textured surfaces should be brought to life with the proper accent lighting. For the best results, “skim” the surfaces with a slightly-angled light.
- Consider backlighting decorative objects. Placing a simple light behind decorative fixtures, like plants or sculptures, creates a fascinating accent lighting effect. This works particularly well with accent pieces that have translucent components, like glass or even the water in fountains.

Heat Your Home with Wood Pellets – Save 20% off Until October 31st
Wood pellets have become a popular form of heat because they are environmentally friendly, extremely clean burning, and cost- effective. Wood pellets are made of wood by-products (such as sawdust, wood chips, and other wood waste products) of varying qualities. These byproducts are run through a pelletizing machine which produces pellets measuring approximately 1/4” diameter by 3/4” long. Pellets can vary in cost, depending on the quality and ash content. Pellets are packaged in 40-lb. bags for easy handling.

Every SCHONBEK® product is of heirloom quality and will last for generations. To ensure it retains its brilliance and splendor for years to come, proper care and regular cleaning are necessary.
It is recommended that SCHONBEK products, and particularly their crystal trim, be lightly dusted with a feather or lambswool duster, or soft brush every two months, or whenever it appears dull or dusty. A thorough cleaning should be completed every six months.
Before cleaning a SCHONBEK product, first locate the fixture’s trim diagram. This will assist in replacing the crystal trim in its proper location after cleaning. Should a replacement trim diagram be required, please call 800-836-1892 to speak with a SCHONBEK customer service representative, who can provide a new diagram.
SCHONBEK recommends several different cleaning methods, depending on the type of fixture. Some fixtures can be cleaned with limited removal of crystal, while others must be completely untrimmed.
Place a soft towel or blanket directly beneath the fixture to limit the damage to both the crystal and the surface below the fixture, should a piece of crystal be dislodged during the cleaning process.
Extreme care must be taken around any electrical fixture. For personal safety and the safety of the product, be sure that the fixture has been turned off. Never rotate or spin the fixture as this can cause the fixture to lose support and fall. Instead, move around the fixture while cleaning.
White Glove Method
Prepare a cleaning solution of one part isopropyl alcohol to three parts distilled water and place in a clean spray bottle. Do not use packaged cleaning fluids, as many of these contain ammonia, which may degrade the finish of the fixture and the quality of the crystal.Wearing white cotton gloves, spray one glove with the solution and keep one dry. Gently polish each crystal with the damp glove and immediately wipe it with the dry glove. Do not tug or pull on the crystal, as this may cause the connectors to chip or crack the crystal, or dislodge it from the fixture.Warning: To reduce the risk of personal injury due to fire and/or electric shock, never spray solution at or near the fixture.
Crystal Removal Method
Gently remove trim and hand-wash the crystal in lukewarm water using a mild detergent. Rinse in clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. Do not soak finished crystal such as SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Colors: Teak, Golden Shadow or Silver Shade, for extended periods, as this may degrade the crystal’s finish.With the fixture untrimmed and turned off, wipe the frame, including the light bulbs once they are completely cool, with a soft cloth.Wearing white gloves, finger-cots or using a soft clean cloth, gently replace the trim as directed in the trim diagram.

Island counters and breakfast bars demand a combination of task and general lighting. A very good solution is to add a group of miniature pendants.
Mount each pendant so that the bottom of the shade is approximately 66″ above the floor so it is possible to look across the room below the pendants. If the shades are not very deep and there is seating at the kitchen island or peninsula, install the pendants a few inches lower (60″ above the floor).
In general, you should install one pendant for every two feet of counter space and try to use an odd number of pendants to create better balance. Thin, narrow pendants, however, might look more pleasing with the addition of one or two extra fixtures.

RAB has a new program for companies that want to replace their inefficient parking lot lights called ”4 In the Air “. Angersteins will order you 4 FREE lights that you install and keep at no charge for 2 months. If you don’t like them, return them to us. If you decide to keep them – we will bill you for them.
Call us for an appointment today. We also stock RAB’s LED wall packs. All RAB LED fixtures have a 100,000 hour lifespan based on IES LM-80 results and TM-21 calculations.
We took down our parking lot lights, three 400 watt metal halide bulbs, replaced with 78 watt LED lights by RAB.
At 100,000 hours, light output drops to 70% of initial output. But even at 70%, the LEDs are still
going strong, with a difference that is only subtly discernable to the human eye.
