Illuminated Pergola Beams

This is especially important for bars and restaurants that have outdoor seating and don’t want valuable seating space to go to waste once the sun sets before 7.

This kind of all-over lighting is also great for home safety deterring burglars and making it easier for guests to see ground level hazards on their way to the door. if you own a business this kind of lighting is essential to keep your exterior noticeable to passersby even after you have closed for the evening.
Lantern and Post Lighting
A truly functional and versatile way to add some light to your home is with a classic lantern. Whether mounted to your home or on a decorative post lanterns are an efficient, stylish and timeless lighting solution. Light up your front walkway with a classic post-mounted lantern and bring the light to the doorway with a complementing side-mounted lantern beside the front door. The options and uses are pretty endless.
Aside from the classic entry uses lanterns can provide light pretty much anywhere you want them to. Many customers choose to add lanterns to fence posts to illuminate walk and driveway gates and signs as well as to draw attention to beautiful container gardens or structures like arbors and pergolas. Classic or contemporary in a variety of finishes it’s impossible not to find the perfect lantern for your home or business.
