Do you know the importance of porch light for the overall design and appeal of a property? Whether you have a small, a large, a full, or a semi-full porch, the light source can improve the look and the ambiance of the porch. Unfortunately, not many homeowners realize this as many of them are more focused on the interior décor. But you know better, right? And you know that the right source (with the right style) can drastically increase the look and the atmosphere of the porch.
If you have a small porch, for instance, the wall sconces can be a great option. Sure, they are small but they are handy to light up a small and limited space. Install one on each side of the door and you have provided enough light source. After all, today’s lights sconces are super stylish as they come in various designs and shapes, from the traditional lantern type to the modern sophisticated model. Or do you prefer the rather dramatic flair? Consider having a chandelier type. It doesn’t have to be big as a small or a medium lamp will be enough. However, it should be enough to provide and generate enough light. After all, who says that the porch light has to be big and grandeur?
Don’t forget to think about the season, climate, or the lighting type. If you live in a tropical area where it is mostly hot, having a lamp with wooden element is okay. But when you live in a humid spot, ditch the wooden element and choose for metal. Or if you have a brick home façade, choosing the brass light will be the best option because it will enhance the brick details. In most cases, sconces lamps are okay for the porch. But if you also use the porch as the sitting spot, you can choose the pendant lighting or the ceiling overhead fixture. With so many different options of the porch light types and designs, you shouldn’t have problems finding the right one. [thementra.com]
