Outdoor Wall Lights and Sconces

A perfect way to frame your front door or garden area and create an inviting exterior is to install outdoor wall lights. These typically come in the form of sconces, but you might be surprised to find dozens of design styles, including mission, traditional and modern. This variety of choices, including dozens of weatherproof finishes, means you can get just the look you want for your outdoor wall lighting.

Keep size in mind; you don’t want your lighting to be overpowered by your front door or architectural elements in your garden. Choose fixtures that are at least 25 percent as tall as your door to ensure they’ll provide ample lighting and be a strong design element. When selecting your outside wall lights, don’t forget to take into consideration how easy it will be to replace bulbs once they’ve burned out. Some designs require you to dismantle the light to access the bulb inside, which can be an ordeal.

Once you’ve chosen your exterior wall lights, make sure to install them according to the included instructions. As a general rule, the ideal height for each outdoor wall light is around eye level, or 66 inches above the floor. You’ll find dozens of ways to upgrade your entryway with our selection of outdoor wall lights here on Houzz.
