Elk 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

You can add wall lanterns on both sides of your front door approximately 66 inches above the bottom of the door, slightly above eye level. The height of the wall lanterns should be from 1/5 to 1/6 of the entrance height.

Use a single wall lantern on other entrances to the house mounted on the keyhole side of the door.

You may use a chain hung lantern mounted over the front door beneath an overhang for added light.

Keep you pathways well lit with lanterns mounted every 8 - 10 feet for safety.

You can add a post light near driveways and walkways for added illumination and security.  

The LightingGuru recommends ELK Wall lanterns and ELK Outdoor Lighting. ELK Lighting provides Lighting for Distinctive Homes.
