When you start your journey to build a Kerley Family home, you have control of the design process through our Design Studio. This is where you can pick fixtures, finishes, and other elements that will personalize the look of your entire home. Cabinets, countertops, trim, and every fixture in your new home is customizable in our studio. Lighting is a bright and important piece to pay attention to in your home. That’s why today we’re showing you how to choose the best lighting option for your new Kerley Family home.

Lights in the living area

Lighting for Living Spaces

An essential feature of any home, living spaces are for relaxing with friends, family, and guests. Maintaining comfort is a high priority in these spaces, so fixtures that help set a comfortable mood are vital. Select a ceiling fan that suits your tastes to circulate air and provide light. Kerley Family homes often offer multiple windows for natural light in these spaces, so multipurpose fixtures are great for adjusting based on the time of day or event.

Kitchen lighting

Kitchen and Dining Lights

Utility and atmosphere, the kitchen and dining room lighting options serve two important purposes. In the kitchen, bright, even light is necessary for food prep. The kitchen does double duty as an entertaining space, so lights here should also be attractive. Pendant lights are gorgeous accent pieces which also set the scene in the kitchen, and they’ll provide ample light for cooking. In the dining room, atmosphere is the major consideration. Elegant chandelier-style fixtures are right at home here, and we have a selection for you in our Design Studio.

Bathroom Lighting Options

The bathroom is another place where function and form are both important considerations. Of course, for bright light throughout, recessed ceiling lights are the go-to. However, when it comes to your vanity lighting options, you have creative freedom. Wall sconces like those in the photo above shed ample light that doesn’t overbear, and we have plenty of attractive options available to browse to match your style.
