Family of Handcrafted Lights Boost Farmhouse Feel for New Home
Shopping online can be a bit intimidating when it comes to spending hard-earned dollars on products you can’t hold in your hands before purchase. Here at Barn Light Electric, we strive to make the process as easy as possible. We provide a wealth of information in easy-to-navigate menus which includes photos, product descriptions, dimensions, and maintenance information.
We also have a talented Customer Care team at the ready to answer questions, share photos, provide finish color samples, and offer guidance on sizing and other customizing options.
One of the newest additions to our website is the Shop by Shade menu which includes each shade we manufacture and every mounting option available. When Linda was building her new farmhouse in Palmetto, Florida, she chose our classic Original™ shade for all of her outdoor lighting. From the Shop by Shade menu, she selected gooseneck lights for the garage, double post mount lights for the driveway, and gooseneck lights and a stem mount pendant for the front porch.
“We wanted American-made lights for our modern farmhouse design which features black-and-white hardie board and a gray metal roof,” Linda says. “We chose Original™ barn lights for the farmhouse style, and it looks great!” Since the home sits on two acres set back from the road, Linda wanted the double post mounts to provide adequate lighting along the driveway. She customized these three post mounts with 12″ shades, a porcelain enamel Black finish, and 10-foot direct burial poles also in Black.
“The porcelain black is beautiful and the shades had to be large enough for the front of the house,” she explains. “At night, the lighting from the double shades is great.”
For the garage, three more Original™ shades add needed illumination and plenty of farmhouse style. These wall lights sport 12″ shades and the same porcelain Black finish as the post mounts. They are mounted with G12 gooseneck arms.
The inviting front porch features a high ceiling, double front doors, and rocking chairs to wile away the afternoon. The Original™ Stem Mount Pendant was handcrafted with a 16″ solid steel shade and the porcelain Black finish. It is suspended from the ceiling on a 36″ stem also coated in porcelain enamel Black.
The two Original™ Gooseneck Lights that flank the doors also have 16″ shades and the porcelain Black finish. These are mounted with G22 gooseneck arms for the perfect projection from the crisp, white façade.
“I love everything about the lights! The effect is very welcoming at night,” Linda says. “I was given Barn Light’s name by a friend who knows the product well and said I would not be disappointed. And I wasn’t! I highly recommend Barn Light Electric!”
