With the holiday season officially upon us, it’s important for home owners to get their humble abodes into tip-top shape for entertaining family and friends. We recently conducted a survey that found 84 percent of Americans wish they had better home lighting – an astounding number to say the least! Additionally, we found our respondents felt that lighting is the most important factor for creating ambiance within the home. Last, but not least, in regards to holiday entertaining, 74 percent felt that the right lighting was absolutely essential when welcoming guests.

According to our survey, 34 percent of those sampled wish they had better lighting while cooking—and with good reason. Whipping up the perfect holiday meal is no easy feat, and precise lighting plays a role both in preparation and entertaining.
