Outdoor wall lanterns, also referred to as porch lights or garage lights, are mounted onto a wall. Usually they are ideal next to an entrance or either side of a garage. They will light up the local area and most of the yard, although a larger space may need more than one. Being fixed to the wall they place the light closer to the building, ideal for entering or exiting, or to help with parking. They are installed electrically as a hardwired fixture and usually operated by a wall switch or sensor.
Our Loft-Industrial Lighting Style is heavy on the unrefined aesthetic elements inspired by the industrial revolution and turn-of-the-century warehouse lighting fixtures. These bold and strong designs are dominated with heavy metal or rustic wood construction, and are certain to ignite an urban renewal through use of rivets, chain links, steampunk-inspired light bulbs, metal ribbon strips or wrought iron trimmings.
An outdoor light fixture attached to a wall can shed a strong light into the surrounding area. At night it can light up a whole yard, although the most light will be found nearer to the fixture. Post-mounted lights can light up a driveway or larger outdoor space. You may need more than one for a larger yard, especially for lighting in the dark.
For outdoor use typically next to a porch entrance or either side of a garage. They can be exposed to weather or placed below a covered area.
An outdoor wall lantern will light up a porch, patio, or deck area, or even a garage driveway. But if you have a larger yard you might want to consider a lamp post light or a second wall light. Don't forget to also light the side and rear of the building too.
Attaches to a wall, typically the wall of a porch, or to the side of a garage door. The backplate of the fixture covers up the electrical installation area.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the wall light into the building's electrical supply.
