Outdoor Lighting Tips


Outdoor LightingOutdoor lighting accentuates the elegance of your property, making your place of home safer and more secure. An illuminated entrance allows you to identify visitors and properly greet guests. Placing wall lanterns on the exterior of your home gives a warm, inviting look. Hanging a pendant or a flush mount fixture under a porch creates the setting of a comfortable outdoor environment. Single wall lanterns can be mounted near a separate rear door or side entrance to illuminate the keyhole side of the door. Installing a wall fixture on the face of the garage will provide adequate lighting for those using the garage at night.

The Outdoor Fixtures above are part of the Murray Feiss August Moon Collection.

When selecting your outdoor fixtures always keep in mind that less is more. If you prefer a more dramatic effect, you should use lower-wattage lamps. If you should desire additional light to brighten the surrounding area, you may want to consider using low-voltage landscape lighting.

Illuminating driveways, paths and steps is essential to ensure that family members and guests are able to walk easily and safely after dark. Installing path lights, post lanterns, or attaching lights to the side of the house can provide the perfect level of light and will give guidance towards walkways. Path lights that are low-leveled will distribute circular patterns of light and will also illuminate your walkway while highlighting your beautiful landscape.

In the evenings your patios, decks and porches can be transformed into your place of serenity and relaxation by simply concealing low-voltage lights under railings, steps or benches. If you prefer a moonlight effect, you could install a spotlight flooding down from the branches of a nearby tree.

I really like the "Westinghouse - 67975 > Outdoor Wall Sconce" type of outdoor light but I am not fond of the way it looks during the day. Do you have any examples (pictures)of how it looks on a house at night? If so could you send them to me?
