If you are searching for high-quality outdoor lighting ideas, then you’ve come to the right place! Here are some ideas to help you plan the perfect scheme for the exterior of your home or business.

The Front Door
This is the most popular entry point for a home or business, and there are plenty of options for entryway lighting. Most commonly, you will see two fixtures of choice —one on each side of the doorway. Fixtures can also be used on a single side of the door, but will need to be placed on the side opposite from the door hinges so they are not blocked every time the door opens.

If the entry way is covered by an overhang, then it may be better to use a single hanging lamp or light that you can fix so it is in the center of the overhang area. This provides light to the entry area without taking up valuable space.

Garage Doors
Garage areas are often used as secondary entry ways. A popular option for lighting these areas is to select fixtures that match what was used at the front door. This helps tie the overall look and feel of the home exterior together and creates a uniformed look.

Post Lanterns
This style of lighting can be very good for lighting front lawns and green space that might not be lit well enough by porch and entry way lights. Many people use a post lantern or small walkway post lights to illuminate these areas.

These are just some of the options available from a Jacksonville lighting store like Stewart Lighting that can give you the outdoor lighting that you need. Contact us today to see the difference strategically-placed exterior lighting can make for your home or business!
