Idlewood Electric Supply
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in Chicago
"I recently stopped at Idlewood Electric Supply as I happened to be in the area. Bethany Rodgers, a lighting specialist, was very professional and made a number of suggestions and showed me examples that may fit my needs. She printed out detail sheets of two examples that I was interested in and one of these fixtures was on display in their showroom. I hope to revisit and purchase from this lighting company because I felt Ms. Rodgers understood our needs and style criteria."

Lighting Designers and Suppliers in Chicago
"Lightology is a lighting showroom, and lighting website unlike anything else I've ever seen. I've always had a passion for lighting, and decided to see what I could do to add a little style to my house, my sister's place, and my neighbor's place. They've got a tremendous selection in the showroom, and great salespeople that helped me make what turned out to be perfect selections for a whole bunch of different areas. Did kitchens, a hall, a bedroom, and even some cool stuff for my neighbor's deck! If you've never been to the showroom, you really should pop by, and ask if you can see the rooftop garden. If you can't make it, try the site. Some really cool lighting is there!"

Liquor Shelves by Armana Productions
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in Chicago
"I ordered two 5 ft shelves and loved them. When one of the shelves came in it was damaged, I called Armana back and explained the damage. They sent me a replacement right away and I sent them back the damaged with them paying for shipping. The shelves set off the bar we have in our house and installing them was simple. The remote control is especially cool. We love them and they are great company. Cheers, Joel and Renee Otero"

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 Chicago home. It's important to communicate to your 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 Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, Naperville and Joliet.

Questions to ask a prospective lighting designer:

  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • Are you a participant of any professional programs or associations?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can the job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about when there are changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
