Rustic Ceiling Fan, Light Create Cool, Relaxed Mood on Porch

Our outdoor living spaces help stretch our square footage whether it’s a front porch, screened room, or covered deck complete with outdoor kitchen for that Labor Day barbeque you’re planning. If you live in an area with a mild climate, these outdoor living areas can be used most months out of the year and are the perfect spot for entertaining or just relaxing with the family. Studies have shown that homes with porches sell better and often entice those driving through the neighborhood or browsing the internet to take a second look.

This lovely covered porch is ready and waiting for a crowd to gather with its comfy couches, strings of delicate lights, and a citronella candle to keep the bugs at bay. And of course, that gorgeous view of the woods is surely filled with the delightful sounds of birds and wildlife! Topping it off is a ceiling fan to keep the breezes moving even on a still day. This fan has a rustic light kit much like our Barnstormer Cast Guard Ceiling Fan Light Kit which can be found in our Light Kits and Accessories collection.

The Barnstormer Light Kit features a cast guard and glass which can be customized in one of four traditional finishes — galvanized, black, white, or dark green. The glass itself also comes with options including textured, ribbed, or colored glass. The Barnstormer design comes straight from the Atomic Era and can lend a rustic, industrial, or even nautical feel to your space.

And starting tomorrow, you can take advantage of our big Labor Day Sale on this and many other items! Barn Light Electric wants to recognize the hard work & craftmanship that goes into each of our American-made shades so we are offering a 15% discount for our customers. Just enter the code HANDSPUN12 at checkout to receive your savings! See complete details here and take advantage of our special pricing between August 30 and September 3rd!

  1. Do you carry the string lights shown in this picture as well? Where can I purchase them?

    Hello Kristin! Thank you for your comment. No, we do not sell string lights like the ones pictured here, but we do offer a wide variety of American made pendant lighting that would work well on a porch such as this. You can use a cord hung pendant on a porch as long as it it covered and protected from any direct precipitation.
