If you have ample headroom above an entry-way, a hanging outdoor pendant light can work well. The outdoor ceiling light hangs down from a higher roof so that the lantern is closer to people. This positions the light above or next to entry or seating areas. Outdoor pendants can flood a local area with ambient light and help everyone to see in the dark. For a larger or wraparound porch, more than one may be needed.
This light fixture cuts down on light pollution, helping to support a "dark sky". The design ensures that most of the light is directed downwards or out to the sides, rather than upwards into the sky. This is accomplished by reducing the sideways visibility of the light bulb. This helps to reduce light pollution levels and helps to keep the glow of city light to a minimum.

Our collections of farmhouse style lighting designs may use natural wood and forged metals that will enhance the hospitality of any room or outdoor space.
For outdoor use, outdoor pendant lights should be mounted underneath the overhang of a porch or covered deck, if you have enough headroom. They can be hung next to outdoor seating if there's room.
A ceiling-mounted outdoor pendant fixture will shine its light downward and outward over the local area. At night this light may well spread out over a fairly large area, centered on the porch. But it may not reach to the further reaches of a yard without additional lights. You may want to pair it with some wall/garage lights.
Attaches to the flat underside of a covered porch, deck or entry way. Hangs down from above. The fixture includes a canopy which covers the electrical installation area.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the pendant light into the building's electrical supply.
