5 most popular blog posts of 2014

As a company, providing a positive learning experience has always been one of our main goals. Creating valuable, readable blog posts is a big deal to us, and we spend a lot of time looking back at what we’ve written to find out what worked, and what didn’t.

As we look back at 2014, one thing remains clear. Our readers continue to look to us for expert advice on things like “What are the advantages of Low Voltage Lighting?” and “How do you install LED Step Lighting?” The ever-popular “How to Layout Recessed Lighting in 4 Easy Steps” still reigns as our top blog post of all-time.

But we also like to have a little fun at Pegasus Lighting. In fact, it’s one of our guiding principles. Doing photo round-ups and design series gives us a chance to step back from the technical aspects of lighting and enjoy the remarkable things light can do. It was encouraging to see that our readers enjoy it too.
