Outdoor Lighting for the Home


The warm glow of a front door lantern has welcomed people home for centuries. Look for a lantern style that complements your exterior, reinforcing the architectural elements for a smart façade that yields ample curb appeal. Brightening the entrance and exit points of your home makes security sense too, by deterring unwanted visitors and ensuring a safe passageway when laden with packages, keys and mobile devices. Typically homeowners install either one lantern (we recommend it appear approximately 1/3 height of your door from the street) or if space allows, two lanterns (about ¼ the size of the door) that are placed on either side to complement the entrance.

For long porches that run the length of the home (lucky you!), consider placing a series of hanging lanterns to illuminate this area for a warm and inviting appearance.
