So as you wander the aisles of the big box store looking for an inflatable reindeer for the front yard, you spot a pretty cool light for the front door.
Too bad it only comes as a pendant, not a wall sconce.
When you find the perfect light fixture here at Barn Light Electric, chances are pretty good that you can customize it to your heart’s content. Take the Seaside Radial Wave Reflector for instance. This delightfully wavy shade is hand crafted right here in our own manufacturing facility, and we have a laundry list of options for you to choose from.
So how do I customize thee? Let me count the ways….

Growing families often find themselves getting creative when it comes to adding more children to the house. Jessica Sloan, owner of Coastal Kitchen & Bath in Victoria, Texas, recently turned her remodeling skills to her own home after her fourth child was born.
“We have a new baby so, with four girls, we had to consolidate children for lack of better words,” Jessica says. “Four-year-old Lyrik and baby Piper are now together because the little one cared the least about sharing a room.” Jessica, who has been building and remodeling kitchens and bathrooms for more than 10 years wanted the girls’ space to be light, bright, and airy...

I got an email not long ago from a Barn Light customer who told me she was moving to a new home and would be ordering more lights soon. She had already renovated one home and was now starting over. I had to laugh when she wrote, “But don’t worry. I’m taking my favorite Jadite barn light with me!”
I’m sure she’ll be happy to know that many of our wall sconces now feature a plug-in option making them quite portable and flexible enough to fit into many home plans and design schemes.
Many of our most popular wall lights are now part of our Apartment Lighting Collection which features fixtures that can be hardwired into the wall or... Read More
I have not adjusted to the time change apparently. I seem to forget, or perhaps I’m in denial, that it will be pitch black by the time I get home some days. I have yet to remember to turn on the outdoor lights when I leave.
And while late fall is a great time to wrap up outdoor chores for the year, it’s also a great time to think about your outdoor lighting which gets a workout during these months. If you remember to turn it on.
Start at the street and try to think like your Uncle Howard who will be navigating his way to your door for Thanksgiving in the dark. Is your driveway easy to see? Is your parking area well lit so Aunt Virginia doesn’t... Read More
It’s cooling off just about everywhere here in the U.S. and we even enjoyed a dip in temps this weekend thanks to the season’s first cold front pushing through. We relished the 79-degree high on Sunday, and lows in the 60s had some people hunting for sweaters and boots!
Fall is a great time to cozy up at home and enjoy the longer evenings once we “fall back” in time. It’s also a great time to infuse warmer colors into your home décor palette. Curl up by the fire with a good book next to the Lovell Task Lamp, an American made table lamp that exudes mid-century style. The conical cup shade is crafted from steel and coated with porcelain...

The wall sconce has come a long way since the medieval days of glowing torches lining long, dark hallways in the castle. No other light is more versatile in helping create the proper mood in a room by offering a spot of light just where you need it.
Wall sconces are often a critical piece of the puzzle when interior designers layer light in a room. Achieving the proper balance among different types of lights helps create the mood — too much light makes a room feel sterile while too little light makes a space less inviting and less safe to maneuver in.
And while some light fixtures serve specific needs and spaces, the utilitarian wall sconce resides quite... Read More
