The Ultimate Guide to Picking the Right Lighting for Your Home

Lighting is one of the most crucial aspects of home design, impacting everything from functionality to aesthetics. The right lighting can transform a space, making it more inviting, comfortable, and practical. Here’s a comprehensive guide to help you pick the perfect lighting for every room in your home, and why Piper’s Picks Lighting Collection from Progress Lighting, available exclusively at Wholesale Supply, should be your go-to choice.

Understanding Lighting Types

Before diving into specific room lighting, it’s essential to understand the three primary types of lighting:

  1. Ambient Lighting: This is the main source of light in a room, providing overall illumination. It often comes from ceiling fixtures, chandeliers, or recessed lights.
  2. Task Lighting: Designed for specific activities like reading, cooking, or working, task lighting includes desk lamps, under-cabinet lights, and pendant lights.
  3. Accent Lighting: Used to highlight architectural features, artwork, or other focal points, accent lighting includes wall sconces, track lights, and spotlights.

Room-by-Room Lighting Tips

Living Room

The living room is a multi-functional space requiring a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting. A central chandelier or ceiling fixture can provide ambient light, while floor lamps and table lamps are perfect for task lighting. Accent lighting can highlight artwork or architectural features.

Piper’s Picks Suggestion: Consider the Piper’s Picks chandelier from Progress Lighting for an elegant touch that enhances your living room’s ambiance.


In the kitchen, functionality is key. Bright ambient lighting is essential, but don’t forget task lighting for countertops, sinks, and stoves. Under-cabinet lights are particularly useful here.

Piper’s Picks Suggestion: The Piper’s Picks pendant lights from Progress Lighting offer stylish and practical task lighting over your kitchen island or dining area.


A combination of ambient and task lighting works best in bedrooms. Ceiling fixtures provide general illumination, while bedside lamps or wall sconces offer task lighting for reading.

Bright, even lighting is essential in bathrooms. Overhead lights combined with task lighting around mirrors ensure you have the right illumination for grooming.
