LIGHTING DECOR opened in 2001. The store was established by Victoria Fedorov who has over 20 years of experience in the lighting industry as a salesperson, consultant and designer. The selection of lighting at the store is hand picked to make the store stand out from its competitors. Emphasis is placed on quality, class, design and affordability. The store recieves at least one new item every week to keep up with the changing industry and shifting tastes. Because of that, there are always items on sales, so one can always expect to find a great deal at the store.
The aim of the store is to cater to individual needs based on the size of the house/condo, individual stylistic preferences and budget. The process is rarely straight forward but this individual oriented approach is often satisfsctory in the end. For those uncertain about the style of lighting for their house or those confused by all the variety the industry has to offer, the store may provide free in-house consultation and advice.

One of the most frequently asked questions is how big should my foyer chandelier be and how high should I put it. There is no straight forward answer to that question as there is a lot of variation from foyer to foyer which may affect your choice. There are, however, a few general suggestions which are helpful as primary guidelines.
Foyer chandeliers are usually multitiered having at least two tiers but there are many modern lights to which this would not apply and you would have to use your intuition or seek professional advice to make a suitable selection.
Remember, although these are considered to be the industry rules of thumb they should be treated as suggested guidelines only. We have found that real installations vary considerably due to personal preferences as well as house dimensions. You can always drop by our store and ask our knowledgeable staff if you have any ideas or concerns to discuss.
Questions about dining room chandeliers are, perhaps, as frequent and as important as questions about foyer lighting. As with foyer lighting there are a few guidelines we can suggest to help you navigate all the variety the industry has to offer and make a suitable selection.
Treat these rules as a starting point and don't get too fixated on following them to the letter. You can bring your floor plans or pictures of your room to our store and we will help you figure it out.
One of the most common wall light uses is for bathrooms or powder rooms. It is not uncommon to see chandeliers used in bathrooms and powder rooms but wall lighting still remains an important attribute of any bathroom or powder room. Here's what we can suggest.
Another use for wall lights is for outdoor illumination. Aside from illumination, wall lights can greatly add to security of your home. Here are our suggestions.
The issue of open concept interiors has become a source of major headaches for quite a few people moving into a new house or condo. Instinctively, people think that the lights should match throughout the house but quickly fall into too-much-of-the-same-trap and eventually get stuck not knowing what to do. One way to deal with this issue is to draw imaginary walls and keep each space as a separate space (i. e. kitchen/breakfast area, living room, entrance etc). That way you would match (i. e. get fixtures from the same family) fixtures for each of the spaces. Depending on the openness of your house you could then change lighting styles for each of the spaces. But from our experience with open concept homes it is difficult to add too much stylistic variety and people end up keeping their fixtures in more or less the same style (i. e. modern , traditional) throughout.
