Below are a few lighting tips and trends from the owner, Chris Unthank, to help elevate your home’s ambiance.

Q: What Makes Valley Light Gallery the Most Sought-After Lighting Showroom in the Valley?

A: We’ve been in business since 1976 and have met fabulous people within all aspects of the business. Over the years, we’ve developed an incredible passion for bringing the best, most on-trend lighting in the marketplace. Our customers receive exceptional customer service and high-quality merchandise all at affordable prices. The unsurpassed inventory allows you to see, touch and interact with every type of product imaginable.

Q: You Are Constantly Updating Your In-Store Merchandise. What Does That Process Look Like?

A: We purchase new products year-round to keep up with ever-changing trends and styles. We visit all the largest lighting shows in the country searching for that “eye-catching” new piece. You will find new lighting fixtures and ceiling fans in our store every single day. We have a dedicated staff switching out merchandise to enhance and delight your shopping experience. We offer our customers a plethora of colors, styles and finishes for your home’s interior and exterior needs.

Q: With Numerous High-Quality Light Fixtures to Choose From, What Are Some of the Most Popular Styles/Trends?

A: Modern black light fixtures are very popular right now, and we have them in stock. We strive to stay ahead of the market and often discover trends before they are “cool.” Light fixtures with clean lines, metal and wood finishes are setting the stage this year as well as “smart” lighting that can be controlled from an app or your voice and typically utilize LED bulbs. Additionally, consumers are looking for lighting with a natural appeal, including energy efficient and durable soft lights for cooler temperature ranges and hand-forged fixtures. Customers visit our store looking for “transitional” lighting as well, which can have various definitions. For example, someone’s definition of transitional could be mid-century modern or contemporary. What we do best is get people comfortable with available styles and teach them how to piece it all together in their home. We’re a firm believer in abandoning the idea that “everything has to match.” Let the unique pieces you choose tell a story!

Q: How Affordable Is Your Merchandise?

A: Our lighting and fans are typically cheaper than products you will find on the internet. It’s easy to buy from us. You can see the merchandise up close to ensure it matches your taste, scale and finish. Our experienced staff will help you pinpoint and narrow down your choices based on budget and design parameters; and we try to work within any budget. We want people to receive the value they demand. Our staff enjoys finding creative ways to help our customers save money and achieve their lighting aesthetic goals.

Q: What Is the Best Way to Purchase from You?

A: Whatever works best for you! Some people like to bring images found in magazines or online, others prefer to get inspiration from just visiting our store without any specific style in mind. You are purchasing a working piece of art that illuminates your specific style, so you’ll want to visit in person and speak with one of our lighting professionals to get the full experience. We provide a tremendous selection of products for customers to choose from. We’re constantly evaluating our merchandise to meet consumer expectations.
