Lights Unlimited of Garner
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in Raleigh, NC
"Recently built a new home and this company is our builder's preferred vendor for lighting. Very knowledgeable staff and good selection of lighting. Staff let me know they had a catalog we could order from as well - only caveat is not being able to see the fixture prior to installation - timelines prohibited this. All fixtures were installed in our new house on schedule. However, three issues. The company did not have our lighting plan prior to meeting, but that was okay because I had a homemade one - I do wish that they had an official one because some of the lighting on the exterior wasn't what we thought it would be. Second, a light fixture was faulty, which the company replaced about a month later. One vanity light fixture with the three lights in our guest bathroom was installed with mismatched glass/globes to the other (they were supposed to be white but we received one white and one cream). Installation was in late August and I'm still waiting on the replacements in early November. They say its the manufacturer, but we haven't had this experience ordering lights from other retailers (we also purchased lights from Pottery Barn and West Elm which arrived promptly). I'm positive they will follow through with the replacement, but am very bummed at having to wait so long. Otherwise, they're a good vendor for new construction."
- Rachel Wilson
Pine State Electric & Lighting Center
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in Raleigh, NC
"Unexpected reasonable prices in a showroom design center store. Informed sales staff knew the products on the floor and additional styles available in the line. The salesperson shared that the light fixture I was considering also came in an "oval" shape rather than the usual round shape, something I had not noticed in the catalog online. It was a pleasure to be able to buy locally from the place you could actually view the product. I got brand name lighting fixtures retail priced as low as large home improvement store price, and comparable to most online lighting centers."

"A wonderful store! We've been asking loads of questions and buying from Bob for our downtown condo for ten years. He carries beautiful furniture from a variety of vendors, including some from North Carolina. We think his prices are affordable, and he will do whatever he can to make his customers happy. We highly recommend Trig."
- Van Garrison

"We are remodeling two of our bathrooms, and were extremely happy with the customer service we received by Beverly. I was impressed that she took the time to review our plans and look thorough options online with me; giving me advice and making recommendations for lighting, which saved a lot of time and potential design mistakes. I recommend them highly."

What is a lighting plan designer?


Lighting designers often have a knowledge of physics, optics, ergonomics and environmental issues along with an eye for construction and design, allowing them to devise lighting plans that not only improve visibility but create hierarchies, dynamics and a mood within a space. Often working in conjunction with an architect or interior designer, lighting designers will work to incorporate reflective surfaces and integrate daylight. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of lighting showrooms & sales: Interior Designers & Decorators, Design-Build Firms, Electricians.

Think about how you plan to use each area of your Raleigh, NC home. It's important to communicate to your North Carolina lighting designer which space will be used as an office and which will be a media room, for example, as these will require very different lighting methods. In addition, consider how you'd prefer to control the lights. Lighting technology today includes dimmers, sensors, photocells (that let lights react to the amount of daylight in a space), programmable scene controls (that let you program different settings for varied lighting) and whole-house lighting controls (that let you control all or a portion of your home's lights from one source), allowing you to tailor your lighting controls however you wish.

Be wary of electricians or sales reps posing as lighting designers. Identify professional lighting designers by finding out whether they're involved in lighting programs or associations such as the International Association of Lighting Designers, and confirming that they have LC (Lighting Certification) or CLC (Certified Lighting Consultant) credentials. You can find more lighting showrooms & sales in North Hills, Durham, Cary, Apex and Garner.
