Awesome lighting ideas to brighten your Valentine’s Day!

Valentines lighting ideasFor that special someone in our lives, Valentine’s Day often goes beyond just a simple card. It’s the day to celebrate the love between the two of you and no matter how much time has been invested into that love, you might be surprised to learn that a lot of our significant others are expecting more than just a last minute thought.

With you and your sweetheart in mind, we’ve come up with the following awesome lighting ideas to create a perfect Valentine’s Day ambiance and really impress the love of your life:


  • Decorate your chandelier  - consider changing out the bulbs in the chandelier over your special home made Valentine’s Day dinner, to warm glows like amber, rose, or red colors. Add some strategically placed rose buds for an extra boost of love. Combined with a beautifully decorated table and some candle light, this simple idea can make someone feel very special.

  • Add colorful LED lighting - whether indoors around a well thought out Valentine’s Day Dinner or outdoors under the romantic stars, warm, glowing LED lighting adds a soft, comfortable and warm feeling to your Valentine’s Day evening.

  • Valentine’s Day String Lighting - sold mainly at a party or event store, Valentine’s Day String lighting comes in the shape of various colored hearts, flowers, and other Valentine’s Day themed shapes. Drape these lovely lights over a countertop, stairway railing or even the front door to surprise your special someone coming home.

  • Add Lighting behind a wall hanging of “Love” - very popular right now, canvas prints or paintings of the word “love” are showing up in just about any home goods store you walk into, what better way to add a special “sign” of love than by literally making a lit sign? Simply string some lights around the edge of the frame or put it behind the print for a “love-ly” glow.

  • Turn down the lights - what better “excuse” for a new dimmer switch than a very special Valentine’s Day evening? Have a professional from John’s Electric come install these or any of your other lighting and help you hide it from sight in time for the big reveal!

Getting smart about Christmas lights in 2018.

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Halloween came and went, and now, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, once the decorating is finished, that is. One of the most visually pleasing parts of the season is all the festive lights in creative places on neighboring houses. But that type of effect isn't limited to just outdoors; lighting plays a big part in Christmas inside as well. A tree with no lights looks dimly like a big plant in the center of the room. That's until the carefully strung lights shine throughout the magnificent green (and sometimes even white) tree and show off what's adorned on the branches. To make sure you get the most of your festive lighting, this year make a switch if you haven't already too smart lighting with LEDs.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Aubrey did an excellent job with moving our electrical main service. He coordinated with Alabama Power and the Hoover inspectors and everyone was there when they should be. He knew that we needed a special disconnect and ordered the right one. We gave him a key and trusted him to be in and out of the house and yard when he needed to. He kept us informed, did a quality job and went over and above to come out to check on things for us after hours one evening and teach us a few things. Reasonable price as well. A true professional and I will recommend him again.

Yellow Pages

Aubrey was here less than half an hour after I called, had the problem identified within 5 minutes and had the problem solved within 15 minutes. He was friendly and professional.

Richard Walston

Even though I thought the price was a little high the service was fantastic. Aubrey came right away and did a great job. He cleaned up all of the "mess". I can't tell you how much that was appreciated. I have had other contractors that left all of the packaging, etc when they completed their work--as if they just couldn't be bothered. it was greatly appreciated

Debbie B.

I was very satisfied with the service. I drilled a hole in my main service line on a holiday, and they had me up and running the same afternoon. Thanks!!
