Do you have a light post in your front yard that you would love to use but are just not sure what to do with it? Today, you can buy unbelievable designs in lights to replace on the post to transform the appearance. This means that no matter what the color of the exterior of your home or the style, a style will be available that coordinates beautifully.
To give you an example of some of the styles from which you can choose, consider the following:
Three-light Cambridge Post Light – This style features clear, seedy glass that is etched and has gorgeous pressed glass medallions. The framework is made form cast aluminum with a powder coat finish. The light works on a candelabra-based lamppost and requires three, 60-watt bulbs. The light measures 13 inches diameter and 24 ˝ inches high. On average, the light runs around $350.
One-light Brushed Nickel over Solid Brass Post Light – This beautiful light has a satin etched glass, measures 10 inches diameter, 21 inches high, and 10 inches wide, and uses one, 150-watt bulb. This is an affordable option, running around $110.
One-light Olde Bronze over Solid Brass Post Light – This offers a rustic, casual look that is made from satin etched glass. This light requires one, 150-watt bulb, measures 10 inches diameter, 21 inches high, and 10 inches wide. This too is an affordable light averaging $110.
When you buy your light fixture, it will come with all the instructions you need for the installation. If you were not comfortable in working with the electrical wires, you would need to hire a professional. If you shop around, you will find numerous designs on sale. Many of the light posts sold today can be found at half the normal cost simply by looking at the year’s end inventory that has to be moved for the new line to launch, and at overstock items, which means the manufacturer ordered or made too many of one kind.
You will love the new look that a new light fixture creates. Additionally, with the light, your lawn will be brighter, making your entryway safer.
