PRO TIP: As a sizing rule of thumb, each light should measure about one-fourth the height of the door.
But a single light can be used for the side and back door.
PRO TIP: Hang the light on the same side of the door as the keyhole or door handle.
Whether it’s a modern retreat or a mid-century craftsman, there’s a light for that.
PRO TIP: Use lighting to highlight focal points in the architecture, like archways, columns or textures.
Don’t be afraid to decorate.
A covered porch, deck or patio is a great place for an outdoor pendant or chandelier that lets your style shine through.
PRO TIP: Many of Hubbardton Forge’s fixtures are damp-rated, so they are safe
to hang outdoors in a fully covered area.
Put lights were you need it.
You can’t go wrong with the common sense approach: add lighting on walkways, steps and by doors to make spaces safer and more usable during darker hours.
PRO TIP: As a general guideline, start with a space of about 6 feet between path and post lights.
