Your front porch offers the first impression of your home. It’s important to light your front door to guide guests safely, as well as to improve the curb appeal of your home. There are so many styles to choose from, including outdoor pendants, wall sconces and other fixtures in a variety of styles.
If your front porch or back porch is recessed and it’s hard to spot your front door from the street, consider installing a series of wall sconces. Here, one sconce is placed on the corner as a marker, and then once you round the corner there are two more flanking the front door. Lighting is a great tool in aiding in way finding.
If you are lucky enough to own a midcentury modern home, such as this one featuring a screened entrance and bright orange door, choose a wall sconce that enhances but doesn’t distract from the architecture. These simple sconces blend in to the proportions of the screen. At night they’ll cast shadows through the screen and onto the main facade.
Lights tying into the aesthetic of the wood beams is vital, but if the room incorporates numerous lighting types, it is important to have some stylistic overlap between all the lighting fixtures. In this case, the common element is rounded lamp shades and cream tones. Though each light has their own unique use of the color, lamp shade, and structure, they work together to create a cohesive and complementary design.
This inviting entrance features a large expanse of glass and a brightly colored Japanese maple tree. An artful wall sconce provides plenty of light without detracting from the scene. The sconce is mounted between the heights of the door and the window—pay attention to architectural features when aligning your sconces.
If you have an outdoor back deck with sliding doors, you’ll benefit from installing wall lighting. Here we see two traditional wall sconces in black that coordinate with the mullions and door trim. The fixtures double to highlight the entrance as well as provide lighting for enjoying the deck.
We hope this collection of the best ideas for entryway lighting for your covered porch, back porch or outdoor deck has been helpful. The best modern fixtures are dark sky compliant and contribute to the character of your home. Take the time to research the best fixture for your entryway.
