How to choose the right size outdoor lighting?
In this article we will tell you how to choose the right size outdoor lighting.
THE LIGHTS BY YOUR DOOR SHOULD BE ABOUT ONE-THIRD TO ONE-QUARTER THE SIZE OF YOUR DOOR AND TRIM. You can go bigger if your entryway is spacious and has a high ceiling. Choose a size that is 1/3 the size of your door. Try 1/4 the size of your door if you're in a smaller space. Mount the lights, if possible, 66 inches or more above the ground and at least 6 inches away from the door frame.
LIGHTS BY YOUR GARAGE: The height of the lights by your garage should likewise be between 1/3 to 1/4 of it. Although they should not overshadow your doorway lights, these should undoubtedly make a statement.
LIGHTS ABOVE YOUR GARAGE: Nevertheless, the intention is to illuminate the entire garage space, and the lights should shine both below and forth. An entry from a garage door is typically 8 feet wide. Depending on the shade pictured above, you might require 2 lights or a 20-inch shade to cover the space. We typically advise using 1/4 to 1/5 of the width of the door opening because the shade will direct the light.
Additionally, they must be positioned in the middle, about 6 inches above the garage trim or door.
DRIVEWAY OR GARDEN LAMP POST LIGHTS: In relation to the mounting pole or fence post, this light should be around 1/4 that height. These are typically best positioned 5.5 to 6.5 feet from the ground to the bottom of the light fixture.
