Some people get into the Halloween spirit by dressing up their homes in spooky lights and wicked decorations. Others prefer a home with a less haunting appeal. If you’re one of the latter and haven’t already, consider decorating with autumn-themed accessories this season. Items such as pumpkins, scarecrows, and warm yellow lights represent fall itself more than Halloween, allowing you to keep them up for longer than you would typical October decorations. Moreover, you won’t be upsetting the younger kids on the block with ghoulish props. If you’re looking to express your festive spirit in a friendlier way, we recommend adorning your home with the following fall lighting décor this year.

We’ve all seen them lurking during nightfall, on the side of the road. It’s the embarrassing display of a poorly lit sign. Sure, there are some building and pylon signs that do not require illumination to advertise, but often times properly lit signs are essential for attracting potential customers, especially when it’s dark outside. Dim or dark signs can result in questionable advertising, loss in business revenue and overall costly energy inefficiency. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your sign.

Soraa, the LED lighting company who is best known for its line of high quality MR16 LED light bulbs, has concluded a research venture with Pennsylvania State University measuring the importance of color-rendering. As it turns out, efficacy isn’t the only spec worth looking at when choosing a new light source—the quality of the light should be considered as equally important. Test subjects in the study widely preferred the performance of Soraa LEDs over standard LEDs when illuminating colors and white objects.

Setting up a new hydroponics garden can leave you with the grocery store question of “paper or plastic,” although it’s actually a question of what kind of pot you should use for your plants. Yes, fabric and plastic pots are just containers to hold whatever grow medium or soil you want to use, but the pot you choose has a direct effect on the health and well-being of your plants. Knowing the pros and cons of each pot material and how they affect your plants can make a world of difference depending on your plant’s needs and growing environment.

When light is too direct or reflected too strongly off a surface, it can produce a brighter, more dazzling light called glare. In the home, glare most frequently occurs in task lighting fixtures such as desk and table lamps, but it can occur in general lighting as well. Glare is a primary cause of eye strain, which can be uncomfortable for your eyes and result in headaches, nausea, and other unpleasant symptoms. This is why it is important to reduce the amount you experience in your home. Below are some effective strategies for eliminating glare as a cause for eye strain.
