How to Choose the Perfect Exterior Light Fixtures

Are you looking for a fast and affordable way to spruce up your entryway? Then consider installing new exterior light fixtures. At Mr. Electric of Atlanta, we provide premium commercial and residential services including lighting system installation, repair and replacement in Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding cities. You may be sure that new exterior light fixtures are an excellent investment but are overwhelmed by the options available. Here are some tips on choosing the perfect fixtures for your needs, lifestyle, décor preferences and budget.


Of course, the first consideration is often the color and style of the fixtures. This makes a lot of sense because the eye will certainly be drawn to the lights and should therefore enhance your décor rather than detract from it. Whether you prefer traditional, modern, farmhouse or artistic styles, be sure that that your chosen fixtures fit with the overall look and feel of your property.


Be sure that you choose the right size fixture. If you install one that is too small, it could become almost invisible in the space. On the other hand, if it is too large, then it can dominate the area, detracting from other important design features. Take careful measurements and select your fixtures accordingly.


Your light fixtures will serve as more than decorations. While they have aesthetic appeal, they will also serve a very practical purpose of lighting your entryway for family members and guests. For this reason, think about your goals. Do you want bright lights for safety concerns? Is your intention to set a mood with dimmed lighting that offers a cozy welcome at the end of a long day?


Think about proper placement for your fixtures. Which areas are most accessible for installation purposes? Do you simply want a single light placed over your door? Are you interested in the charm of matching sconces on each side of your door frame? Perhaps you have a large wrap around porch with multiple sitting areas that need a lot of hanging fixtures.

Popular Varieties of Exterior Light Fixtures

Are you looking for a little inspiration to start your search? Some of the most popular exterior light fixtures include table lamps, outdoor chandelier, wall sconces and light posts. All of these choices can highlight the beauty of your property by providing an extra dose of elegance and charm to your favorite outdoor spaces.
