Barn Lights Lend Urban Chic Vibe to Basement Renovation
Kids usually have that one friend they love to visit. There’s something about other people’s spaces that is attractive, intriguing, and way more fun than home. Maybe it’s a cool playroom. Or a pool in the back yard. Or simply different Xbox games on the shelf.
For Michelle in Wichita, Kansas, she wanted to have “that” home, so she set about renovating her finished basement to be more inviting. Here’s a before pic of Michelle’s space.
“We wanted to create a place where our friends and our children’s friends could hang out in the safety and supervision of our home,” Michelle says. She started on Houzz where she was totally inspired by a photo of a shuffleboard table with some gooseneck barn lights above it. Here’s the amazing transformation!
Michelle was going for an urban bar look and nailed it completely with the wood floors, brick, and industrial touches throughout the space.
“We knew we wanted a shuffleboard table and the barn lighting was perfect!” Michelle says. After much consideration, she chose The Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Light to highlight her new shuffleboard table. She customized these three barn lights with 12″ shades, a Black finish, and G12 gooseneck arms in Brushed Aluminum.
“The color and finish were classic yet urban,” she explains. The Original™ is one of our best-selling RLM-inspired warehouse shades. With a timeless style, it works beautifully in so many different spaces, and the dozens of customizing options allow it to go from a traditional farmhouse look to retro to urban chic.
The Original™ is hand spun from commercial grade aluminum in our Florida manufacturing facility and is finished and assembled on site. This versatile shade can be mounted not only as a gooseneck light, but as a stem mount, cord hung, or flush mount pendant, wall sconce, or even a post mount light.
“No one around us has anything like them,” Michelle says. “They are the perfect, original touch to the space and are of great quality too.”
