          Slowly but surely, we've been updating all of our home's light fixtures with more modern, high end looking options. For months, I've been on the look out for an exterior, flush mount light with a farmhouse look and feel.
          I was so happy to find this. I love the finish on the metal and the unique finish on the glass. It certainly provides a more high end look. I love the oversized look, as well. It's much preferable to the basic black square light we had mounted previously.
          My only real peeve with the product was the need to disassemble the entire light (only 4 screws) to remove the packaging and install the bulb. Changing out the bulb when needed will not be a quick or simple Read More

          When we purchased our new home, the previous homeowner only handed over keys to the front door. With several entrances and exits, we needed to replace a large number of locks. We couldn't find any kits with multiple knobs to fit all our doors.
          Enter this knob with SmartKey technology. In only a few minutes, we were able to key this lock to the same key as all our other locks! I'm so glad that I don't need to add another key to my key ring!
          We still need to change out the deadbolt to match this black exterior knob, but these knobs are a must have for any new homeowner. A few minutes and you can change out all of your knobs to a single key. So easy and such an immediate improvement.

          Create a luxurious look with the ease of peel and stick wallpaper. Delicate trees with slender gold trunks and light blue buds pop against a rich navy background. Blue Ficus Peel and Stick Wallpaper comes on one roll that measures 20.5 inches wide by 18 feet long.

          When I saw this wallpaper, I was absolutely in love with the design. The dark blue color is so rich and beautiful. The silver stems have a metallic sheen and pop off the wallpaper. The bright teal of the blue flowers pop off the wall.
          The wallpaper feels heavy and strong. It lays well. Apply with the hinge method for the easiest installation possible. The design makes pattern matching pretty simple, even if you don't have much patience for detail--like me.
          This is perfect for an accent or statement wall. I love the idea of using it in a half bathroom or a closet especially. Such a vintage-esque, yet modern, bold pattern.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Nice Design, Vibrant Color, good for pattern matching

          With a split level home, we are constantly fighting over who has to run back downstairs to turn out the lights. In our family room, we have pot lights on a dimmer. We've been on the lookout for an affordable wifi switch that was also a dimmer. We were so happy to find this.
          If you've ever switched out a switch before, installation was simple. Our switch is 3 way, so we did have to purchase an additional dimmer remote to make our dimmers work in unison. It was all worth it to no longer have to fight about whose turn it is to turn the lights off.

          This automatic decorative LED night light is equipped with a dusk to dawn light sensor that automatically turns the night light on (in low light settings) and off (in light settings) to ensure illumination is only provided when you really need it. For convenient customization, this LED night light is also equipped with a switch allowing you to choose between two levels of brightness to suit your needs. Rated to last for 15,000 hours and using only 0.4-Watt of energy, these LED night lights help to conserve energy. Since LEDs never overheat, LED night lights are also the safest option for your home. Use in kitchens, hallways, living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and anywhere else you need additional light.

          With lots of littles running around, we're ALWAYS on the lookout for a good nightlight. Bonus points in my book if it looks super cute. We need the nightlights, but all too often they're eyesores.
          I love the look of this one. It's something different--cute and fun. It has two brightness settings, which can be easily toggled with the switch on the back. I love the dusk to dawn sensor. So great that I don't have to remember to turn anything on or off.
          This is one of those affordable things that will just make your life so much better. It's chic and functional at a great price point. The perfect nightlight!
          Pros: Compact, Eco-Friendly, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright, two light settings, affordable

          Answer: 
          It provides enough light for our 10x10 room. But anything much larger than that might be stretching it. We opted for Edison LEDs. They're pricey, but they should last forever and really make the fixture look high end.
