Lighting Fixture Advice from a Pro

By Rebecca Brown, Interior Design Manager

Overhead lighting isn’t the foundation of your interior design style, but don’t ignore how important it can be in making your look come together. In this blog, I’ll walk you through how Bielinski makes choosing your lighting fixtures as easy (or as complicated) as you want, some simple things to remember when choosing a style, and other trends to watch.  


At Bielinski, we offer lighting packages. That means that you can pick a style, and each and every lighting fixture will match, from your entryway and pendant lighting all the way to your bathrooms. The great thing is it keeps you from having to make individual choices for every single lighting fixture in your home.

But what if you want to make individual choices for every single lighting fixture in your home? Well, that’s fine, too. We don’t mind if you mix and match with our packages, or even provide your own fixtures. By providing packages, our goal isn’t to limit you. Our goal is to make choosing your lighting simple if you want it to be, and flexible if you don’t.


In my humble (and expert) opinion, lighting fixtures should be one of the last choices you make when designing your home. I often tell my customers that lighting is a finishing touch, like jewelry for your home. And there are many more foundational choices you must make before picking out the finishing touches.

So really, your lighting choices will be informed by all of the other style choices you’ve made up until then. And most of the time, the decision comes pretty easily. Especially when you can see all of the options we offer easily and online through our digital design studio and room visualizer tools. 


Lately, we’ve been seeing the rise of black lighting fixtures. Going dark is a trend we noticed earlier this year, and we don’t see its popularity waning anytime soon. One reason black lighting fixtures have become so on-trend is that other black hardware has too. Black cabinet handles, drawer pulls, and faucets have all become in demand, and many customers want their lighting fixtures to match.

Has all this talk about lighting given you the bright idea to get into a new home? Our New Home Consultants would be more than happy to help you take that first step.


  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.

  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.

  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.

  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.

  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
