Lighting and Halloween don’t always go hand-in-hand, but if you’re looking to take your decorations to the next level, adding some spooky lighting or spotlights may take you over the top. Colored flood lights can be used to light up your home to create a spooky glow. Others have used regular spotlights or uplights to shed light on a particular decoration (like a spiderweb or scarecrow).
There will typically be more people (kids) walking on and around your property, so it’s important that the areas of high traffic and hazardous areas are lit properly. Stairs, walkways, and uneven surfaces should be illuminated properly. It’s a good idea to check your bulbs in these fixtures before the prime trick-or-treating hours to make sure they are all still working.
Have a great Halloween weekend! Stay safe and don’t get spooked!
Copper is finding its way into beautiful homes around the nation this year. Copper can be used for furniture/decor accessories, kitchen sinks and bathroom tubs, and even (you guessed it) lighting fixtures. Copper is a beautiful metal that casts a lovely warm glow, and can be used in many different styles.
Wrought iron, silver, nickel and stainless steel have been the go-to metal for many years in lighting design, but this year copper has made itself known! Customers across the nation are asking for it, and our lighting companies are providing excellent, beautiful options to suit every customer’s design needs.
Copper accents and light fixtures can be made to suit any decor, whether it is modern, contemporary, traditional, or country. Copper can be manipulated many different ways – it can be shiny and polished new, or oxidized and vintage looking.
The gorgeous color that copper gives off creates a warm feeling. It can compliment all other metal finishes and “go” with any existing decor or color. It is truly versatile and can be used in practically every room in the home. Copper light fixtures can come in many different styles, shapes and sizes. They can also be available for any budget, as there are options ranging on the lower and upper end of the price range scale.
So wether you are looking for a large striking copper light fixture, or a small copper accent piece, come in to Harold’s Lighting in Seattle or Bellevue today to check out our large selections of the new copper lighting trend!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s an annual campaign to help increase awareness of the deadly disease. Most people have heard of breast cancer and are aware of the dangers, but many forget to take the necessary steps to have a plan to detect the disease early.
About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. When you look around at the women in your life, that number is pretty scary.
Early detection is important. Catching it in the early stages of development can drastically improve your chances of survival and easier treatment. Regular screenings, (such as mammograms) are important for every woman.
Almost everyone knows someone who has been diagnosed, and it can effect everyone around them. Harold’s Lighting is a proud supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and encourages everyone to get checked regularly and to live healthily.
