With so many outdoor lights on offer it is easy to become overwhelmed. We would recommend starting by taking a good hard look at your porch or front door area to determine the type of fittings that would be suitable. The aim is to cast a wide pool of light that illuminates your entrance with a warm glow of light that is easy on the eye. Try to avoid having any dark corners and harsh bright lights. If you are unsure about the size of fitting to choose it may help to make a mock-up out of cardboard and affix in place before stepping back to take a good look. Some of our bigger hanging porch lights and lanterns are suitable for larger period homes and for lighting outside pubs, restaurants and business premises.
Outdoor light fittings sold in the UK have a rating that indicates the locations they can be used in. Indoor lights are not suitable for using outdoors and it is important that you select the correctly rated outside lights for your situation. Light fittings will have an IP (ingress protection) number and you should look for outdoor porch and front door lights that have an IP44 rating or higher. Slightly lower rated fittings can be used if the area is undercover or partly enclosed.
