Schoolhouse Lighting Brings Playful Pop of Color to Hallway
Remodeling projects are akin to a game of dominoes. A fresh coat of paint in the kitchen suddenly makes the adjacent dining room look tired. Then with fresh paint on those walls, the lighting that the builder spent 20 seconds picking out looks more dated than ever. And so it goes.
Like many remodeling projects, Megan’s started in the kitchen. But by the time she was finished, she ended up with fresh paint, all new electrical, and new lighting fixtures throughout the house.
In searching for new lights, Megan’s list of criteria included high-quality, American-made fixtures that were easy to customize and available in a variety of colors. That search led to Barn Light Electric.
“I wanted my house to be beautiful and calm, but with happy pops of color,” she says. “Lighting can be so expensive especially when you are replacing 28 fixtures inside and out. We had to pick and choose what was most important to us.”
For the upstairs hallway, Megan fell in love with our Kao Primary Schoolhouse Flush Mount Light. She customized these vintage-style ceiling lights with a small, opaque globe and a Delphite Blue finish.
“The lights look clean, allow for movement with our 8-foot ceilings, and give off enough light to keep the hallway nice and bright,” Megan notes. “And the Delphite Blue finish color makes me happy.”
The Kao Schoolhouse Flush Mount comes in both small and large sized globes in either opaque or clear glass. The fitter can be customized in one of 35 finishes including copper and brass. Megan adds that she chose Barn Light’s schoolhouse lights because they’re well made and offered in plenty of colors.
“Once I found Barn Light Electric, I knew I was hooked for life. I love looking up from downstairs at the lights,” Megan says. “I had a contractor say, ‘Don’t spend this much money on a light. I can spray paint something for much less money.’ I’m so glad I didn’t listen!”
