Spring is at long last here and the weather has been fabulous, so it is the perfect opportunity for me to follow through on my expectations to create some projects around the cottage bungalow. The rundown of undertakings is really extensive so I figure I’d begin little by completing something that has been right around 2 years and that is introducing outside lights on the garage.
2 years ago alongside having the cabin painted we likewise had our garage totally rewired. There was a super scrappy and absolutely illicit electrical situation happening where someone accidentally pulled a few wires and this led to power outage in the garage. This is not safe as was additionally a warning item on our inspection paperwork when we were in the purchasing period of the house. It must be settled.
We got a new refreshed electrical run into the garage and that included updating the wiring for new outside garage lights. They’ve been sitting vacant this time and I know that isn’t legal. I’ve been intending to look for lights and install them for a while, yet it just constantly tumbled to the base of the need list. When I got an offer to partner with Lamps Plus, I knew it was the ideal opportunity to get it get it handled. I’ve followed Lamps Plus for a long time so I was exceptionally acquainted with the brand and I knew they would have loads of awesome choices to pick from.
Before I got lost in the rabbit hole of decisions, I knew I had to consider certain things before I purchased the lamps. The first would have to be size because the distance between the fence and the garage was not much. Additionally, we are battling with general position. The gutters position and the height of the wiring is also limiting our choices.
Another consideration is style. We already have fixtures at the front entryway and garage section entryway on the opposite side of the fence so I required something that would complement them without rivaling them since we don’t have space to accommodate that style in the new installations.
I am also not looking for them to act as showstoppers. I only sort of need them to fade away from plain sight and be useful and not create unnecessary attention. With that in mind, I discovered 3 alternatives that I knew could get the job done:
This one I like for both the shape and the general look. It looks simple and I believe it will work with the general style of our home.
This one I preferred, once more, for its size and shape. It feels extremely “bungalow” to me so I figure it would likewise function admirably.
This one is an exemplary stable style and is sufficiently proportioned to work. I also like that this one has a sensor to turn off when it is daylight.
There were so many choices to pick from but these are the 3 that truly emerged as great alternatives. I ordered all there and I am patiently waiting for them to arrive. I am eager to demonstrate to show you guys the one I eventually settled for when they arrive and I will do that in the coming weeks.
Until next time folks.
