Nautically inspired interior design takes the cake for this summer’s breakout home decor trend. Easy accents like charming Bulkhead Wall Mount Light Fixtures and marine lantern style lighting carry the spirit of adventure into seaside retreats across the nation. We love spaces that make us dream, and that is why we’re looking “up” for the next big interior design trend. It’s time to take our rooms to new heights with aviation inspired decor!Read More
Ah, summer is here and the livin’ is easy! While most of us still have our day-to-day lives to attend to, summer does bring on a more relaxed atmosphere with warm weather, cookouts, and longer days to enjoy friends and family. Early summer is especially nice when you can throw wide the doors and windows and enjoy a pleasant breeze. You can help Mother Nature by installing ceiling fans throughout your home to keep the air moving on a still day. While a ceiling fan will not cool your home, it does make you feel cooler thanks to the wind chill on your skin.Read More
At one point, ceiling fans were anything but interesting and stylish. Most were builder basic – customizable only by different kinds of blades. In recent years, there have been a few changes made; homeowners are once again using ceiling fans as a part of their décor. This is in part thanks to the new designs and finishes made available by manufacturers across the country.
Barn Light Electric doesn’t only carry barn lights and goosenecks; we also offer a variety of ceiling fan styles. Here, it is highly unlikely that you wouldn’t find one to coordinate with the atmosphere of your home! For the bachelor looking for something simple yet modern, there is the Cirrus Hugger Ceiling Fan, just like the fan shown to the right. For those who want their ceiling fans to serve a dual purpose, the Cirrus Hugger is available with options for various light kits – for illumination and cooling the room.
For the backyard entertainer, any of our Barn Ceiling Fans would be ideal for outdoor usage. For a simple, contemporary look, the 60” Barn Ceiling Fan Equine Downblowing was used on the back porch of the Orlando Vision House 2011 (an excellent choice for the unpredictable Florida weather).
Our Machine Age Galvanized Ceiling Fans, shown on the right, were also used within the Orlando Vision House. Designers placed two fans on both the upper and lower patio ceilings. Their galvanized finish went perfect with the ‘modern meets farmhouse’ layout. Did we happen to mention that Barn Light Electric is the only place you can find a 100% galvanized ceiling fan?
With the options ranging from country to contemporary, it’s hard to think of a reason not to incorporate a ceiling fan into your design plans. Get creative and break away from the ordinary and bland. The majority of our ceiling fans are available in different finishes – only adding to the flexibility of their usage. If you have questions on light kits, fan controls, and mounting height, feel free to give us a call; one of our knowledgeable sales reps would be more than happy to answer any questions and diminish any doubts about your choice in ceiling fan.

Today, we proudly bring you Part 7 in our ongoing series of the Orlando Vision House 2011. If youâ€™re still not acquainted with this energy efficient home, follow the link above or do a search within our blog to familiarize yourself! Clearly, the Orlando Vision House has kept the classic industrial farmhouse feel throughout every square inch of the home, including the two children’s bedrooms. One bedroom uses a corrugated metal wainscoting effect along with a full size chalkboard wall. The nursery plays up the farmhouse feel with a country rocking chair, light wood crib, and a barn-style ceiling fan.
In the first bedroom, everything is so perfectly put together and well thought out. From the rustic furniture to the plaid bedding, the industrial farmhouse motif is apparent. To top it all off, the bedroom is neatly tied together with our Barn Light Warehouse Pendant. As with the majority of our fixtures, this barn pendant is customizable beyond belief. Not quite a believer? Check out all of the customer submissions underneath the product description. Shown here is our stem mount pendant in a black finish. We offer this warehouse shade in a cord hung option for use indoors, however the stem mount option is perfect for use both indoors and outdoors. The stem protects the interior wiring against the weather elements, making it perfect for use on your front porch, or here, in a growing boys’ bedroom â€“ things can get crazy in there after all!
In the nursery, the designers have chosen to use our 60â€ Barn Ceiling Fan Equine. The blades curve up on the ends in order to keep air circulating downwards. In Florida, we have only two seasons â€“ hot and hotter â€“ so the cool air provided by this ceiling fan is much appreciated, not to mention energy saving! This ceiling fan starts at $202.50, and like the aforementioned warehouse pendant, there is room to customize it to suit your needs!Read More
