Outdoor lighting serves many purposes. While providing security and safety in the darkness of night, it enhances the beauty of your home.

 What size should my front door light be?

One fixture should be approximately 1/3 the height of the door

Two outdoor lights should be approximately 1/4 the height of the door.

It is important to not go too small. 

Tip: Take a picture of your home with you when shopping for outdoor lighting.
