Put a natural yet unexpected twist on your holiday centerpiece with a birch log bundle wrapped with colored lights. When used on a formal dining table, it's best to use battery-operated versions; however, when placed on a sideboard or console table, plug-in lights work well since the cord can easily be tucked and hidden from view.
Hands down, the best way to keep your exterior holiday decor easy is by adding a timer to your outdoor lights. Most of these simply plug into outlets! This is also a great way to save on energy costs since the lights will immediately turn off just after you head to bed.
The need for a pantry was reduced by creating a food cube shelf that not only holds 18 cubes of food, but also houses the kitchen's electrical outlets and LED strip lighting. Kitchen appliances, including the stovetop, are all plug-in and can be stowed away, leaving more open counter space.
This bright, Tudor kitchen features new recessed LED lights installed in the ceiling with dimmers. The wall cabinets have a LED light under them, mounted at the front for maximum task lighting. The wall cabinets also holds the state-of-the-art tracks with outlets at 6” on center, providing all the plugs one could ever need without breaking up the clean look of the backsplash tile.
No more groping around in the dark when the power goes off. The Blackout Buddy plugs into an outlet so it’s continuously charged and ready. When the power switches off, an LED light automatically turns on. Fold up the prong to use it as a flashlight with four hours of power.
To add ample light to their sleeping area, Briana and Buzz opted for wall-mounted, plug-in sconces that don't require permanent hard wiring. By simply screwing the attachment to the wall, then plugging the cord into a nearby outlet, the look of custom, permanent lighting is achieved without long-term commitment or the steep cost of hiring an electrician. Another advantage of wall-mounted sconces is that table space is freed up, allowing surfaces to be used for other purposes.
Arrange the planters in a rectangle no more than 10’ apart. Secure one end of the string lights to one of the cup hooks with the hook attached to the light, or with cable ties or twist ties if no hook exists. Continue stringing the lights, making an outline of the planters. When you have reached the first planter and have formed a rectangular outline of lights, begin zigzagging the lights from one side of the outline to the other, spacing the passes of string far enough apart so that they will be evenly distributed to the end. Secure the end to a cup hook as you did the beginning of the string. Attach an outdoor-safe extension cord and plug into an outlet.
