House of Lights and Home Accents, Melbourne, FL
Even in the face of change, House of Lights and Home Accents has retained its motivation and enthusiasm as one of the area’s oldest and largest lighting retailers. The company recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with a special sale that was promoted in ads — and on Facebook, a sign that an ”old” dog can truly learn new tricks.
Marketing itself as Central Florida’s premier home décor provider, House of Lights’ 10,000-square-foot showroom carries a wide selection of lighting, portables, home accents and ceiling fans. It’s a charter member of Lighting One, giving it the buying power of a larger operation. A new e-commerce option gives customers a look at
the showroom’s full complement of products in the convenience of their own home or business.
With a staff comprised of many individuals who have been part of the team for 20 years, House of Lights is able to service Melbourne’s residents with a high level of expertise. The staff can help customers make important decisions about their lighting, from where a fixture will be installed, how large or small it ought to be to suit that space and choosing the best materials for the area’s humid sub-tropical climate. Delivery and installation services are available. An on-site shop makes repairs to lamps and chandeliers of all shapes and sizes, including precious heirlooms.
Product knowledge sessions are consistent and ongoing. Like many showrooms in the country, House of Lights has been adding more LED lighting to its merchandise selection and has invested in additional staff training to help its associates better understand this emerging new technology. To help customers get a better grasp of LED illumination, the showroom erected an educational display that compares solid-state lighting options with traditional light sources. The goal is to show LED’s advantages and help soften the blow of the technology’s higher price tag. As it says on the company’s professionally produced website, “Our primary objective has always been to exceed the customer’s expectations in everything we do. Our passion for this business is visible in everything we do.”
