Helping Your Clients

We understand that as a builder, you need to put your client first, whether that client is a homeowner or a company in charge of designing and developing a neighborhood from the ground up. We also understand that your job is to ensure you find lighting products that help make their visions become realities.

When our team works to find lighting for builders, we take the information you relay to us for your project and find lighting styles and designs that best fit that description. We use this strategy by breaking down your lighting needs for every room of your project, and you can count on us to answer and address any of your or your client’s questions.

Our Large Selection Of Lighting For Builders

When you choose to work with Franklin Lighting, you can rest assured that you won’t be limited when it comes to finding light fixtures you like. We are proud to offer an amazing selection of ceiling lights, wall lights and other lighting solutions for builders — all of which come in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and prices.

Pro tip: Keep an open mind when you browse our selection of lighting products. You might think you have an idea of the lighting style you want, but since we have so many items to choose from, you might end up falling in love with an entirely different light fixture style or color. Talk this through with your client, and don’t be afraid to make changes from your original gameplan for your project.

The Best In Style And Design

As a builder, we understand your professional trade and experience isn’t necessarily in lighting design — and that’s completely OK! When we provide lighting for builders, we also provide them with a lighting design expert that is capable of helping them determine a plan that will provide sufficient, beautiful lighting for every room of their project.

You should, however, have a general idea of the type of lighting design your client is going for. This makes the entire process of choosing light fixtures quicker and less stressful, and it also ensures we can get the job done right the first time around.

In Conclusion

Overall, our team at Franklin Lighting is well-equipped and prepared to help find lighting for builders and other trade professionals in the region. Customer satisfaction is one of our priorities as a company and has been since we were founded more than 50 years ago, which is why we think it’s so important to provide our local builders with the resources they need to find proper lighting for their projects. We listed just a few of many benefits to choosing our locally-owned-and-operated company, and we’re sure that if you opt for a corporate warehouse to handle your project that they won’t work as thoroughly with you and your client.

We understand that as a builder, you likely have more than one project on your plate at once, and we can help you get your projects finished on time and within your desired budget. We are Sarasota’s top choice for lighting for builders, and our mission is to ensure you find lighting solutions that are aesthetically appealing and practical.

Our Types Of Lighting For Builders

Lighting products often fall by the wayside in most development projects when, in fact, they should be prioritized. Think about how different a building would be with no lighting. After that, think about the buildings you’ve been in where the lighting is less than optimal. Not so great in terms of usage and beauty, right?

Lighting plays an obviously important role in illuminating the rooms of your project, and for us, that’s the best part about helping find lighting for builders in the community. We can connect you with lighting solutions that impress your clients and add a “wow” factor in the rooms of your project.

On top of that, we’re proud to say we know what we’re doing here at Franklin Lighting. Our lighting and accessories are featured in upscale buildings and homes created by the area’s best-known builders and designers.

Below, we’ve listed the types of lighting for builders we offer in our Sarasota lighting showroom:

  • CEILING LIGHTS: Selection includes an array of chandeliers, pendants, flush mounts, semi-flush mounts, island-pool table lights, lanterns, track lighting, ceiling medallions and utility lights. This type of lighting is most commonly used for general ambient lighting.
