professional designer's review of craftmade fan's outdoor wall sconce
This fixture is an outstanding value. Excellent and finish quality. When lamped a standard frosted incandescent lamp was visible through the interior glass so we lamped it with a clear incandescent 40 watt T10 lamp. (Aquarium/desk lamp/picture light). This gives the glass a more even glow so you don't appear to be looking through it at a light bulb. To be compatible with the light levels in the neighborhood we dimmed this bulb 50%. This will save a calculated 40% energy. So our 40 watt lamp runs like a 24 watt compact fluorescent. The advantage - if we need more light for security or loading a vehicle - we can easily temporarily turn it up. This lamp has a rated life of 1,000 but on the dimmer that is multiplied to approximately 30,000 or nearly 10 years.
I paid less for 2 sconces, a pendant light and the post lamp than one item from the name brand products. The quality is exceptional and compliments the design of our new entry. It took us a while to select a grouping but when we saw this product line and the price we ordered immediately. We couldn't be more pleased.
I replaced existing exterior lights with these sconces and they look beautiful. I have bought many exterior lights for projects I have worked on and the quality of the lights and the beaded glass rival products 2 or 3x's the cost.
