Choosing a Porch Light

Exterior lighting plays a key role in defining the appearance of your home. A porch light is an excellent way to complement your home’s architecture, while also making it easy for guests to reach your front door. Choosing the right fixture for your home isn’t always an easy task due to the wide variety of styles. It’s important to do your research.

How to Choose the Right Porch Light

Here are a few tips on how to choose a porch light.

Evaluate your available space. One of the first steps in finding a porch light for your home is to evaluate the available space. Depending on your home’s style, you may want to consider a ceiling-mount, wall-mount, or a combination of each one if you have a large porch. The main goal is to find a fixture that gives you plenty of light to maximize your home’s appearance while also providing additional security.

Find the right size. The easiest way to determine the correct size is to measure your front door from top to bottom while dividing the height of your door by 1/3 and 1/4. Once these measurements are complete, for the best results, find a light fixture that measures between 1/3 to 1/4 of the height of your front door.

Match the style of your home. Finding a porch light that compliments the style of your home is essential. A well-designed exterior light is a great way to boost curb appeal.
