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.
Classic in nature, yet elegant by design best describes the timeless appeal of predictable yet dignified lines and curves. Traditional Style Lighting prides itself on stately structure, beautiful ornate details, and reliable designs that tell a story of enduring appeal and craftsmanship. It’s a tried-and-true style that is reliable, and speaks of discriminating and taste of a steadfast lifestyle.
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.
I had been shopping for lanterns to hang on patio for months. Nothing really jumped out. I was slightly nervous to purchase such in inexpensive lanterns, but they greatly succeeded my expectations. They look wonderful! I am using them to decorate a tall fireplace with candles inside of them. I hung 4 of them from the ceiling so they are at alternating heights above the mantle. They are not heavy or probably very durable but for something that looks really nice and won't be messed with too often, they are perfect. Success!
