Why We Love Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting extends the property line (at least visually) and allows us to meander safely outdoors as well as in. There are tons of different outdoor lighting fixture types, too, from helpful post lights to decorative outdoor pendant lighting and even contemporary outdoor lamps, that each play specific roles in making the outside of the home the safe haven it's meant to be. Today's modern outdoor fixtures are chalk full of design ingenuity and add bright, modern pop to Mother Nature's landscape while highlighting the home's architecture at the same time.
Where Outdoor Lighting Works Best
Outdoor lighting has the ability to make a great first impression to your guests before they even enter the home. Outdoor pendants and entry lights create this first impression, greeting friends and family at the door with both welcoming illumination and an introduction to the home's design and personality. Where hanging a light on the front porch isn't an option, look to the creative and functional flushmounts and other close-to-ceiling lights. Outdoor wall lights are another way to provide the necessary light, brightening the perimeter of the home as well as the outer entry, and even creating an added illusion of height if they're intended to graze the walls with uplighting. In the backyard, fun outdoor portable lamps, torches and accessory lighting allow you to keep the outdoor entertaining going after the sun sets. Finally, if it is a sense of safety you need from an outdoor light fixture, look to security lamps, flood lamps and even post lights to help provide guiding light on walkways or driveways.
Outdoor Lighting For Every Style
For any decorative preference, you are sure to find the right assortment of exterior lighting here. Traditionally styled patios and porches benefit from the lantern-like fixtures from Maxim Lighting or the collection by Feiss Lighting. For a clean-lined contemporary look, check out the sconces, post lights and more from Hinkley Lighting. LED outdoor lighting is perfected in the collection of wall lights by Modern Forms. Outdoor LED lighting allows you to have an energy efficient fixture that can at once provide bright light for the front porch or back patio, while also being exceptionally sleek and stylish.
Choosing the Best Outdoor Lighting
The best approach to selecting the best outdoor lighting is to determine the function of the fixture. Do you need lighting to be purely decorative or to provide an element of safety and security to your outdoor living area? You'll find outdoor wall sconces and wall-mounted lamps create an inviting appeal to guests while an outdoor chandelier works better for showing off your decorating tastes. Once you know the function of the outdoor fixture, you will want to refine your choices by sizes (keeping in mind height, width and weight), finishes, colors and its bulb type to be prepared with the right light bulb. You will also want to look to the fixture's UL rating to verify it is safe for outdoor use (wet listed or damp listed).

Other Great Options
Get creative with your outdoor lighting scheme by using string lights, torches, lanterns and tealight holders. These outdoor accent lighting fixtures are perfect for late night summer parties and occasional outdoor dining. Outdoor ceiling fans help keep things cool in the space and many options offer a source of lighting to allow you to accomplish two functions at once. Lastly, be sure to look to the assortment of landscape lighting for bollard lights, garden lights, in-ground fixtures, deck lighting and more.
