Bergsma’s Lighting

Main Street Lighting came about after a personal experience of frustration when looking for something different and outside of the mainstream of Big Box or franchise selection. We pride ourselves with a uncluttered, well displayed showroom where you’re not lost in a sea of ceiling lights molding into a forest of confusion. Can’t find it in stock, we’ve got 1000’s of options in catalogues to browse through. Special orders are welcome, call us for a quote, we’re competitive and glad to oblige. Indoor or outdoor, table lamps to chandeliers, lighting is the key to completing your design. After all, it does highlight your environment; it punctuates and accentuates; touches and illuminates the very space you live in.

Finding The Right Light

Bath Light Solutions:

Finding bathroom lighting fixtures that are both functional and esthetically pleasing can present a real problem. Functionally, few fixtures can beat the standard bath strip over, on, or beside the mirror.

For bathrooms with ornate sink and mirror designs, wall sconces are a natural choice. For general bath lighting, consider a small chandelier or lantern.

Ceiling Light Solutions:

Most homes have a center ceiling light in bedrooms, bathrooms, and hallways. Typical ceiling lighting choices include:

  • Twinkling candlelights from small chandeliers or lanterns
  • Diffused light from translucent glass covered flush-mounts
  • Opaque fixtures that reflect light off the ceiling
  • Small pendant fixtures, usually used in multiples

Most ceiling lights have at least 2 light bulbs to give you more evenly spread light without hot spots. Dimmers are always recommended to alter the light levels to suit your needs.

Floor Lamp Solutions:

Floor lamps can be used in any room. Try two to frame your entrance door in your foyer.

They illuminate dark corners, provide great reading light, or can add the perfect decorative accent to a room. Torchieres (lamps with upside down shades) provide an interesting alternative by focusing intense light up to illuminate the ceiling and architectural features or flood a dark corner with softer reflected light. For reading, floor lamps should be used behind or to the side of a sofa or chair, casting light directly on the work area. Floor lamps are most effective when glare is reduced by placing the bottom of the lampshade at the reader’s eye level.

Wall Sconce Solutions:

Sconces are perfect as a framing device for French doors, mantels, mirrors and paintings, so they are equally at home in the living room, dining room, bedroom even a bathroom. They add decorative interest while lighting up artwork and other eye-level details.

Sconces can add elegance, whimsy, sparkle, interest, and beauty to your walls. Wall sconces are an often overlooked solution for brightening dark spaces. Compact but decorative, they add just enough extra light to complement other lighting sources.


Swing Arm Wall Lamp Solutions:

Swing arm wall lamps can be the perfect lighting solution when tabletop space is not available: beside beds, behind sofas, between bookshelves, over dressing tables, and even in bathrooms. Because these lamps have adjustable arms and can be hung at any height, they are excellent task lights for functions such as reading and needlework.

Table Lamp Solutions:

Unless you have provided lighting from another source, a table lamp should be placed beside each seating piece. Shades come in many styles of translucentcy to fit your needs, use completely translucent light shades increase the overall light in the room, then more solid light shades for desks and other work areas. A table lamp can be matched to other accents in the room such as finishes in the chandelier, picture frame, fabrics, art, etc.


Outdoor Lighting Solutions:

Outdoor lights should be compatible with the look and lines of a house. Open bottom fixtures are better for down-lighting an area, and glass topped lanterns are the better choice for accenting architectural elements above and around the door. Wall-mounted fixtures with arms or brackets can fit into tighter spots in areas between moldings. Fixtures with several low wattage candle bulbs are superior to those with a single bulb since they provide more light with less glare.

Chandelier Solutions:

Available in every decorative style, chandeliers add both presence and weight to a room. Whether hung above a dining room or kitchen table, or used as general lighting in foyers, powder rooms, bedrooms, etc., they bring the glow of candlelight to any setting.
