Gas Lamps and Lanterns
Are you struggling to find just the right lighting fixture that will work as general use lighting but also give you that extra touch of class? If traditional lighting options don’t provide what you are looking for it may be time to consider a gas lamp.
Gas lamps can be used in a number of outdoor venues to provide both decoration and lighting. Whether you are decorating a home, restaurant or resort gas lamps can provide exterior lighting that evokes quiet class and times gone by.
Great features of copper gas lamps:
♦ Complete control over the size of the natural flame. With gas lamps you can simply turn the knob to raise or lower the size of the flame. This ensures that their gas lamps provide enough light without getting out of hand.
♦ Safety features. Many gas lamps also have safety controls built in (such as electronic igniters) that allow operators to shut off the flow of fuel quickly in the event that the flame goes out.
♦ Great style and design choices. While some people choose use large propane torches for outdoor seating areas, those that want to add an elegant touch to their operations may opt for copper gas lamps instead. You can choose from a variety of shapes and sizes as well as bracket options to achieve the exact look you need.
Using Gas Lamps at Home
Residential property owners may choose to accent their homes with gas lamps. These fixtures can be mounted alongside doors to illuminate entryways. They can also be placed on posts and located along pathways.
Another popular place where they can be used to provide lighting is on patios and decks. The soft glow from gas lanterns can set the tone while entertaining outdoors or having intimate romantic dinners.
Using Gas Lamps at Your Businesses
Business owners may also opt to use a gas lamp to give their customers a little more “ambiance.” Among the types of companies that may make use of gas lamps inspired by the Flambeaux French Quarter Lantern are:
• Restaurants with decks or outdoor seating areas
• Hotels and resorts with a poolside area or elegant outdoor bar
• Social venues that are often rented for outdoor gatherings, such as weddings or garden parties
In addition to using lamps that are fueled with gas, businesses may also consider fixtures that are powered by electricity. These options allow businesses and residential property owners alike to position the lanterns in whatever attractive and creative ways best suit their spaces, and are especially useful for indoor applications.
Strategically Locate Gas Lamps and Lanterns
One of the key decisions that you will need to make is where to place your gas lamps. To create a feeling of intimacy, you may choose to place small lamps on tabletops. For flexibility in lighting up different parts of their properties, you can hang lanterns from moveable posts. If the outdoor area is covered, hanging copper lamps are another option.
In addition to the variety of shapes and glass panes that are used, gas lights and lanterns offer a range of mounting options. They can be mounted on vertical surfaces beside doorways or along walls. They can also be mounted on posts with signs or by mailboxes. You can also find gas lanterns mounted atop stone columns, such as those you might find alongside the entrance to a driveway.
Add variety to your home décor with a classic gas lamp
Whether you pick wall-mounted or post-mounted gas lamps, you can also choose models that use different types of fuel. While many are designed to be connected to gas lines, some lanterns are designed to use liquid propane.
