The first impression is everything when you have guests coming over. A well-lit foyer or the entrance builds that first look of your house that proposes a welcoming and inviting gesture.

Once you have decided the style of your home, you are all set to pick the front door lights that suit best your modern outdoor lighting. While choosing the lights, you have to be considerate about safety along with creativity. 

You can hang lights, lanterns and pendants to make an ideal illuminating entrance. However, hanging lights look more attractive on tall doorways. Make sure to align the length of the rod provided with the hanging light’s fixture.  

Moreover, a lantern is enough to bring out the classic and nostalgic vibe to your entrance. Interestingly, lanterns can be both hanged and mounted. While selecting a lantern, be sure that it bodes well with the fashion of your house to bring out the best desired effect.

These lights can highlight your otherwise dark entrance, tastefully.

Nameplate lighting and address lighting ain’t a very popular and usually forgotten modern outdoor lighting form. Lighting the nameplate can pull off the style statement pretty well.

The fun part about nameplate lighting is, you can decorate it at your home. Yes, you heard us right! If you don’t want to spend on a professional electrician’s service, it’s okay! With a little knowledge and a pinch of creativity, it’s legal and fun to enlighten your nameplate and the address plate.

Don’t opt for the lights that are eye-soaring. Because they will help you spot the trespasser but it will negatively impact the time you spend outside. And make sure not to opt for too weak and decent lights that will make you fumble around in the darkness to find the door key. 

Remember, unlike indoor lighting, outdoor lighting should serve every purpose of safety and aesthetics togetherly. You may use a halogen light or a bunch of mini aesthetic lights to brighten up your outdoor space and make it more lively.
