We have very strict exterior lighting regulations here in the Gunnison Valley that vary even from neighborhood to neighborhood. Make sure you check out our links below or our showroom before buying exterior lights. Also, “Dark Sky” doesn’t always mean compliant so make sure you check with us for regulations in each part of the Valley.

Hi Lite has lots of colors, sizes, and gooseneck options so really the options are endless!

Millenium RLM Lighting 

There are many more shapes and sizes than your standard gooseneck above but hard to filter them out from the non compliant options. We have a wide variety on display so visit our homepage to make an appointment to come check them out or email us mountaincolors@gmail.com us for some ideas!

The Design Shop orders LED light bulbs from Satco and Bulbrite, the most innovative light bulbs companies in the world! They all stand behind their bulbs and offer a 3 year warranty, even though they will all be rated to last 25,000-50,000 hours! You can feel confident spending the extra money on these efficient bulbs that will be guaranteed to last long and have the warm and comfortable light you are used to seeing. Stop in and ask Kim about these why you should switch to LED, we pride ourselves on being light bulb nerds and can help!!

What are LED’s and why spend the extra money on them?

Light Emmitting Diodes, or LED’s are tiny solid-state light sources that create light without using a filament.  They are more efficient than any other lighting technology available today, including halogen, CFL, and incandescent.  LED’s also outlast each of these technologies.  They maintain brightness for up to 30,000 hours or more.

Advantages of LED Technology:
  • Up to 90% more efficient than Incandescent and Halogen
  • Last up to 50,000 Hours
  • Environmentally Friendly (Mercury Free)
  • Solid state technology withstands shock and vibration
  • Relatively cool running (less energy lost as heat)
  • Lights up instantly
  • Immediate full brightness
  • No UV Emissions/ no infrared
  • Capable of rapid cycling (unaffected by frequent on/off switching)

Do you think we are missing a company?

Just shoot us an e-mail or call and let us know.  We succeed because of our customers and we want to be more inclusive to satisfy everyone’s lighting needs.  We are also always adding vendors to our list to fill the gaps and be more inclusive in the lighting market.
