Spring Forward with LED Lighting and More!
A quick look at the calendar this morning and I realized that it’s almost time for the biannual clock adjustment. This Sunday, we spring forward into Daylight Saving Time and thrust ourselves, albeit sluggishly thanks to the loss of that precious hour, into the new season. And while your spring plans may include a long list of cleaning and refreshing details that need attention, you don’t need to lose any sleep over your lighting. We’ve got you covered! ... Read More

Enter to Win a 12-Piece Enamelware Breakfast Set
Sometimes accidents lead to happy endings. And in one case, a delicious ending! For Sommer, the creative mind and spirit behind A Spicy Perspective, an accident with cheesecake batter led to her creation of Cheesecake Dip. Which leads us to ask, “Why has no one thought of this before?!” No baking. No crust. Just dipping the good stuff right out of the bowl! Barn Light Electric has partnered with Sommer in the past as she has remodeled and updated her home in Asheville, North Carolina.

Featured Customer | Porcelain LED Lighting Brings Tired Rental into New Era
When Brian and Laura, of Newton, Massachusetts, bought a 1912, two-family home, it was in desperate need of TLC after decades of rental abuse.

A Look Back | Commercial Lighting Goes Bold in 2015
We’re winding up a week of reflection here on the blog as we’ve been looking back at some of our favorite customer projects and our most popular pins. Today, we’re perusing some of our favorite commercial projects. I know. I hear ya. What’s so special about commercial lighting anyway? It’s all fluorescent, nondescript, and boring, right?

Rustic LED Components Add Efficiency, Style to Warehouse Lighting

Through the years, we’ve improved our processes, added new options, and expanded our finish selections to allow homeowners to customize these vintage-inspired lights to suit décors ranging from traditional to retro to modern. ...
