Whether it’s inviting guests over for a bbq or sitting on the front porch, a well-lit front entrance enables you to greet guests and enjoy the outdoors after the sun goes down. Wall lanterns on each side of the door will give your home a warm, welcoming feel and a matching post light will help to illuminate the walk while giving your home a finished look.
Investing in a quality product built for function while choosing the right outdoor light for your home’s architecture is key. Quoizel offers such a wide variety of outdoor collections to match all different style homes.
Featured is the Bain Collection. This transitional collection complements many architectural styles and gives the exterior of your home both beauty and security. It has a classic silhouette featuring clear beveled glass for optimum light output.
With the popularity of the Charleston Copper Lantern Collection comes Chalmers, which gives the historic look of gas lighting but without the hassle of a propane feed. This all-electric, solid copper and hand-riveted piece will give your home the romantic, reproduction style of antique gas lights still popular today on many charming homes from New Orleans to Charleston…and beyond.
Helpful Lighting Tips:
Minimize wattage. A little goes a long way. Your eyes need less light outdoors than they do indoors. Higher wattage will create harsher light without improving aesthetics or increasing safety. Low-wattage bulbs are often enough to provide illumination, and this will make for a good neighbor in close quarters.
Control the light. Separately zoned lights with timers, controls, dimmers or motion sensors will turn on lights only when needed or enable them to be turned down as necessary to help manage consumption and ultimately lower your utility bills.
