Why We Love Visual Comfort Outdoor Lighting
The Visual Comfort outdoor lighting range includes focal hanging fixtures, wall sconces, landscape lighting, and architectural feature illumination fixtures. The range also has dozens of popular collections including studio architect compositions, classic watchman's lantern styles, and weathered zinc rugged styles. Home designers and their clients love the strong statements and high-quality construction of these Visual Comfort lighting fixtures and the selection available within each collection, which transcend traditional style into unique and personal lighting. Visual Comfort outdoor lights are beautiful by day and provide stylish illumination by night.
Why Choose Visual Comfort for Your Outdoor Lighting
Visual Comfort helps you create an indoor ambiance in your outdoor space that matches each room of your home. The range also offers modern outdoor lighting to match any style. The E.F. Chapman Mykonos Collection graces formal rooms inside, which can be complemented by placing E.F. Chapman's Darlana lanterns outdoors to create an intimate backyard setting for a quiet retreat from social life. Regardless of whether your home has a stone, brick, colonial, glass, or steel finish, front porch lights and outdoor wall sconces provide the perfect accent to your space.
Visual Comfort Outdoor Fixtures We Love
In addition to the beautiful multi-lamp Darlana Outdoor Lantern, another great option is the tall, two-lamp Linear Lantern Wall Sconce that is made by the same designer, E.F. Chapman. E.F. Chapman also offers copper and marine-style lamps that are for outdoor use. These fixtures connect exceptionally well with pool houses, small barn-style buildings, and other outdoor buildings that have a rustic appearance. People seeking a more detailed appearance often choose Suzanne Kasler's Flea Market light and her blackened copper light, both of which feature a small reflector to cast illumination in the night.
How to Choose the Best Visual Comfort Outdoor Lighting
Durability is something to consider when picking outdoor lighting. Choose all-weather fixtures that can endure rain, sun, and even salt spray. There are plenty of fantastic maintenance-free choices that add beauty and style to your outdoor space. You should also consider proportion when selecting front porch lights or outdoor wall sconces as some fixtures may be perfect for large doorways but immense next to cottage doors. People often misjudge the size of lighting fixtures so when purchasing Visual Comfort outdoor wall lights, choose one that is one-quarter of the door or window height. For hanging outdoor fixtures, consider where the illumination falls and the clearance for those passing below.
Modern lighting fixtures require modern bulbs, which are available in LED and incandescent types. Visual Comfort lighting uses varied bulb types to create different moods such as lantern effects, a diffuse glow, directed lighting, industrial and marine lights, and multi-lamp illumination. Modern LED lighting including flame-effect bulbs and color changing LED bulbs are also available to fit these designer Visual Comfort lighting fixtures. Smart home technology is also compatible with Visual Comfort fixtures and can provide whole-home lighting control for your front door, yard, pool, outbuildings, and outdoor sitting areas.
