Keep cool, wear sun screen, drink lots of water, leave car windows cracked if having to leave a pet in the car for a few minutes, and cut grass 2 to 2.5″ in height. Now, in the lighting world, give your aluminum outdoor lighting some love by adding a coat of Linseed oil or a water based silicone. This will help protect your fixtures from the elements, brighten up the finish and give it a fresher look. The sky is the limit when selecting outdoor fixtures. Finishes, styles and sizes are things to be considered along with light output. While clear glass is beautiful when clean, the light can be harsh or blinding particularly if the fixture is close to your door. Maybe seeded glass or frosted glass would be better. Let us help you make the right choice for you and your home. You will find we ask lots of questions so as to better help you make the right selection.
I have always said lighting is the jewelry of the home. Another terminology is “the icing” . I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it is proven every day in the lighting world. Mixing materials and styles can function in more than one way in a room. Dining room spaces continue to be re-imagined adding personality to the space. The icing can be a crystal chandelier but remember to focus on the light delivered for varied tasks. Maybe a more modern fixture with simplified shapes would better “ice” your table and room. Creating that special space is very important. You will find our staff not only to be good listeners but knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to assist you with your lighting needs. Come visit us, we are excited to see you!
