Outdoor Wall Lights

What are UL Ratings? 

The UL mark on a light fixture indicates its rating based on dry, damp, and wet locations. 

UL Listed for Damp Locations:
Marked as “suitable for damp locations,” these light fixtures can be installed in outdoor locations that are periodically subject to condensation or moisture, such as a covered porch or patio. 

UL Listed for Wet Locations:
Light fixtures marked with “suitable for wet locations” are safe to use in areas where the electrical components of the fixture may encounter water or other liquids. Ideal outdoor locations for these lights include pergolas, gazebos, exterior walls, uncovered porches and patios, decks, and walkways.

Front Porch Lighting Ideas

One of the most versatile spots in your home, the front porch allows for many different types of light ¬¬fixtures. Wall fixtures will help light your front door, while landscape lighting can light up your pathway or front garden. 

Consider the style of light compared to the decor on the rest of your front porch. For a retro look, try hanging antique looking wall sconces. For a modern ambiance, go for matte black fixtures. 

Side of the House Lighting Ideas

When it comes to the side of your house security is key. Flood lights or motion detectors are usually installed at the side entrance. They provide lots of light in an area of the house that’s away from street lights. 

Try adding landscape lighting along the pathway to the backyard. This will not only illuminate the way for guests but will also give some TLC to an area of your landscape that is otherwise ignored. 

Backyard Lighting Ideas

There are lots of possibilities when it comes to outdoor lighting in your backyard. 

Decorative: Lighting like lanterns, Tiki torches, and string lights offer a decorative element to your outdoor living area. Try hanging string lights in the underside of your gazebo or adding lanterns to your patio side tables for some ambient lighting. 

Functional: Looking for a more practical use of outdoor lighting? Outdoor wall lights are perfect for brightening up a back patio or outdoor dining area. Deck stair lighting and post lighting is a great way to illuminate your backyard deck and is also a safety feature. Most post lights and deck stair lighting come in solar powered varieties, so you’ll be saving the planet too! 

Security: Adding flood lights to your back patio is a great choice for security reasons. You can also install a motion sensor to keep away any unwanted critters in the night.
