Welcome HOME

Hinkley Outdoor LightingOutdoor lighting enhances the beauty of your property, makes your home safer and more secure, and increases the number of pleasurable hours you spend outdoors.

A well-lighted front entrance enables you to greet guests and identify visitors. Wall lanterns on each side of the door will give your home a warm, welcoming look while assuring the safety of those who enter. Under a porch or other overhang you can use chain-hung lanterns or flush mounts. A separate rear or side entrance can be lighted with a single wall lantern installed on the keyhole side of the door.

Lighting Fixtures shown above: Chandelier is part of the Valley Collection and the outdoor lantern is part of the Saturn Collection from Hinkley Lighting.

  • TIP: Coordinate the style of your outdoor lighting fixtures with the style of your home's exterior. Creating a unified look on the outside makes a sharp first impression, and leaves room for variety on the inside.
  • TIP: When choosing bulbs for your outdoor lanterns, remember, less is more. Ambience can be created inside and out.
  • TIP: Dimmer controls aren't just for chandeliers and other interior lighting. Fitting your outdoor fixtures with dimmer controls will give you the flexibility to design a lighting plan with multiple uses and decorative effects.
