Situated near Libertyville, Idlewood Electric carries a vast array of ceiling lights, such as pendants, chandeliers and flush mounts that are designed to give your tired room an updated look with a focus on modern, clean finishes and shapes. Flip the switch in your bedroom and illuminate a new chandelier featuring cut glass beads, polished acrylic or a two-toned finish pairing soft gold with matte black. Check out eco-friendly options that use LED bulbs that lower your energy bills dramatically while maintaining a welcoming glow.
If you own an older home or farmhouse, seek out traditional lighting options with a focus on wrought iron, brass and lanterns with an overall rustic aesthetic. Find post-mounted gate lights or carriage door accents that appear as if they were installed years ago only now with modern wiring, bulbs, and materials.
Make the most out of your outdoor social areas by adding lighting that creates a fun and inviting atmosphere beyond a simple entry light. Rope lights, flush mounts or even outdoor-rated chandeliers work well around your patio or deck to chase away the shadows when entertaining all night long. In-ground up-lights illuminate walkways and pool areas, while motion-activated light fixtures on the corner of your home show the way for latecomers. LED and solar technologies keep the energy bill low as they add illumination to all your outdoor areas.
Discover your dream light fixtures designed to create a welcoming beam of light when hung in your Libertyville open foyer. Walk through our showrooms and find starbursts of glass and metal or traditional chandeliers that are dripping with crystals. From a mini chandelier with 3 lights to a two-story chandelier welcoming your guests, the choices are endless. The beauty of selecting your lights from Idlewood Electric is that we have many of these fixtures on display in our Highland Park and Barrington showrooms. The experience of seeing the size, finish and illumination in person is unparalleled to a smart phone or computer screen. Browse our online catalogue or stop into one of our showrooms today to find the perfect entry foyer fixture for your home.
Did you just purchase a loft-style condo or moved into an existing home where there is only one junction box in the kitchen ceiling? This situation happens more often than not. In this case, consider installing track lighting to provide maximum light in the space. Slim, inconspicuous tracks have been introduced by manufacturers so that the lights are obscure on the ceiling. Also, select a white finish so that the track and track heads blend in seamlessly with your ceilings. You can add pendants on your track over a desk or if you need more illumination in a corner, you can adjust the direction of the track head to brighten up the exact spot without adding another light or calling an electrician. Flexible cabling allows you to work wiring around corners, bringing light to the farthest storage closet with its surface mounted installation.
When renovating your Libertyville dining room and looking for a gorgeous chandelier, consider new wall sconces to complement the updated decor. Select transitional aged brass sconces with silk shades from Visual Comfort or add a touch of glam to your dining room with sconces from Swarovski. Frame your china cabinet or the perfect artwork while selecting from the latest looks in transitional and contemporary lighting.
