You may want to call Kichler customer service. I have installed the 15087's in the past in white. I know it doesn't show white as an option in the current catalog, but this may be a misprint. It used to be available in an MR16 downlight option. Please provide feedback as this will probably come up again in the future (at least for me it will).
Good luck,

Do like some of the low end product providers do and take a spray can to it. Oy Vey!

I dont like to install painted fixtures. Why do you need white ? are the shingles white ? afterall if you install in the gutter wont the actual backdrop be the shingles ?

As to fixture suggestion I think it has to depend on how big of an area you want to light and how close the area to be lit is from the fixture location. It could vary from a small wash light to a bullet type light.

Billy,

the fixture needs to be mounted just above the gutter on a piece of wide trim and the light will cast up to the eave (which has a coin just below it) from there. the back ground of the fixture spot is actually cream colored stucco. I hope I explained it well for you. I will try to post a pic soon. I thought white would kind of blend in with the stucco. I was trying to find a mr16 fixture that was small in size and could be used as an uplight. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Darron

There are a number of uplights avalible in a painted finish from Kichler, vista and others. Pick which one works best for you from thier catalogs and pray the finish stays intact. I would make sure its a powder coat and not just some Krylon or rustoleum on there.

I still much preffer a raw unfinished metal such as copper brass or bronze.

I dont care for the path lights in that style. I think they are a bit obnoxious during the day but I do like your design and photos very much. Great work. Potatoe farmers got it going on up there huh.

How come you didnt downlight this from the soffits especially by the garage where that ledge is cutting you off ? I know sometimes its cost or constructive prohibative for you to get in corners like that. Just would like to know if you considered it. I do also try to conceal fixtures a bit more. Alot of times I bring 1 gal aztec grasses with me and try to detract from any fixtures.

I got pics of another but my card reader crapped out so I gotta find my USB cable or get a new reader.

Thanks Mike. Billy, the house was already built and no access to the soffits, otherwise would have been great. The path lights were chosen by his wife. I don't really care for them either, one of the uglier Vista fixtures but she had em at her old house and wanted to use em again. This system was installed 3 years ago, and did his annual last weekend. I shot some new photos with the more mature plant material.
