Lighting & Fixtures



Your home's lighting needs vary from room to room. We understand this and help you design your lighting with this in mind. The task lighting you need in the kitchen is different from the lighting you need in your family room. Where a shadow will fall, which art work needs more focus and the type of lighting needed for putting on makeup are all unique to particular rooms. We can help you decide which lighting schemes will work for each room of your home.


Whether you are preparing your home for sale or simply want to create a whole new look, lighting fixtures can make all the difference. We can help make the process easier by helping you choose the perfect fixture or simply installing your new selections.


Would you like your garage to be less like a dungeon and more like the workhorse it was designed to be? Do you have a work bench light that throws shadows across your latest project? A closet that is dim and dreary? Or a laundry room you dread entering each day? Let us help design lighting that truly works for you.


Exterior lighting not only helps your home look warm and inviting for friends and family, it also keeps them safe. A well lit pathway may help prevent falls while a well lit front door discourages intruders. If you want to feel even more secure Haas and Sons Electric can help provide motion sensor security lighting that will detect any activity on your property. Adding security lights to your home may even help lower your insurance premiums. Call today to find out how lighting can help you feel more safe and secure in your home.

Lighting Turns A House Into A

Lighting serves you and your family in many ways. From function to mood to safety to entertainment the right lighting is a must. Let Haas and Sons Electric help you, create the best lighting design for each area of your home.


What is accent lighting?

Accent lighting focuses on providing light to a specific region of your home or to showcase a particular item you have on display. Oftentimes, homeowners will use recessed accent lighting to create a gentle ambiance throughout their home or to showcase certain art pieces or furniture alcoves. These lighting options tend to be softer, so they’re not overpowering and distracting from the rest of the home.

What type of lighting is best for the kitchen?

Most homeowners are using LED kitchen lighting with the most common color being 3,000 Kelvin and go up from there depending on your specific needs and property. Choosing the right LED recessed lights doesn’t have to be difficult. This range of lighting is a sharp and cool color, which allows for clarity in a space like the kitchen. Just don’t go too much higher on the Kelvin scale, as you’ll begin to see an intensity that’s best for commercial uses around 4,500 and up.

What color lighting is best for my living room?

When it comes to living spaces, lighting a bedroom, nook or your main living room, warm colors that are soothing tend to do well here. We recommend shopping in the 2,700 – 3,000 Kelvin range and looking for warmer colors (as compared to bright whites). You want to relax in these rooms and having too intense of lighting can be a strain at the end of the day.

What is the best way to light a room?

Interior design with lighting isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach, so this is going to depend on what you’re trying to achieve with your lighting and the constraints your property might have. Some homeowners swear by recessed lighting and others enjoy floor lamps and fixtures. It’s all very personal, but the good news is that a Haas & Sons electrician is more than capable to recommend a variety of options to you.
