Lighting Designer? Electrician?my light situation is a mess!

We purchased this house a little over two years ago.

I’m not sure what sort of professional I would need to help with this.

This is the lighting situation in my front room, which is a living room ,dining room and our front entry. We also need lighting help going up the stairs.

The current lights are a mixture of track lighting, a bad chandelier, and some old ceiling fans. They are all awful and have to go.


Better, brighter lighting. I’m open to keeping one fan for airflow. I want to get rid of the track lighting, as you can see one doesn’t even have any lights on it it’s just a track🤷🏻‍♀️

We desperately need a better light over the dining table but I don’t know where to start with that.

As it stands there is no lighting on the staircase, I think that’s what the empty track lighting strip was supposed to be for. This is definitely something that is needed.

I’d like the style to play nicely with the style of the house which is a 1990 contemporary.

The high ceilings are a bit of a challenge as far as accessing the light boxes.

I would truly appreciate any and all constructive opinions and advice, thank you all so much!!
