A Guide To Quoizel’s Exterior Lighting

Quoizel offers a wide selection of exterior lights that would be perfect for any homeowner looking to add some extra brightness to their home’s exterior without making it look overdone. Let’s take a look at some of the outdoor lighting options Quoizel has to offer.




Accent Lighting

Accent lights are one of the easiest ways to add some extra lighting to your home’s exterior without making it feel too bright. Accent lights are typically placed near trees, patio furniture, or anything else you’d like to draw attention to. Accent lights are typically powered by either batteries or solar energy, so you don’t have to worry about running an electrical line to the area that you’d like illuminated. Solar lights are a form of renewable energy that reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment by decreasing chemical pollution created by other lights. They also have the advantage of ensuring light during a power outage. Accent lights are relatively easy to install. You’ll want to make sure that you have the appropriate electrical setup so that you can safely power your accent lights.




Sconces and Wall Lantern

Sconces and wall lanterns use an exterior wall for support, make sure when installing a wall sconce or lantern you have the appropriate electrical setup. Sconces and lanterns are a great way to get creative and show off the exterior of your home without compromising functionality. Sconces and lanterns can be placed on either side of a focal point to illuminate a particular object or area. A great way to utilize sconces or lanterns is by placing them on either side of your front door to illuminate your homes entrance. Keeping in mind these lights project upward, you can get creative with your placement and really highlight your home’s aesthetic.




Pendant Lights

Pendant lights are suspended from a ceiling and can have varying chain lengths. As with all lights make sure when installing a pendant light, you have an appropriate electrical setup. Pendant lights work well with high ceiling, it is, however, important to remember pendants and similar lighting should be placed in an area that high winds cannot reach. There are many areas you can place a pendant light, front porches, for example, not only benefit from the lighting but work well with Sconces and Lanterns to bring more depth and cohesion.



Outdoor Ceiling Lights

Outdoor ceiling lights are much like pendant lights, with the exception that ceiling lights do not hang from a chain. Outdoor ceiling lights are great for low ceilings and unlike pedants you do not need to worry about them blowing in the wind and possibly getting damaged. Larger front porches or back porches are a great location for these types of lights. Always use an appropriate electrical set up when installing light fixtures.



Post Lights & Post Accessories

Post lights are a great way to add extra light to your home’s exterior while also increasing the overall safety of your home. Most post lights are motion activated, meaning they’ll automatically turn on when they sense movement and stay on for a predetermined amount of time. They are typically installed near the front of your home or near the driveway. Post lights are not one of the easiest outdoor lights to install and can require a lot of hard work. If you have never installed a post light there are many tutorials online and if you do not feel comfortable installing this type of light you can contact a professional electrician in your area to install the lights for you. If you are installing the light yourself, you’ll want to make sure you have the appropriate electrical setup. While these lights are not the easiest to install, they have been proven to deter theft. Most people with ill intentions will do their best to stay out of sight, so bright lights being on or turning on with movement will make it harder for them to approach your house without being seen.



Coastal Armour

One last item we would like to mention is coastal armour. Quoizel offers many outdoor lighting fixtures and a wide variety made of coastal armour, but what is coastal armour? Coastal Armour is guaranteed extra protection for your outdoor lighting fixtures, made with materials that withstand extreme temperatures and UV resistance to reduce fading. Coastal armour is a brilliant way to keep your lighting fixtures looking new for years to come while still giving you matchless designs you expect from Quoizel.


A Final Word: Don’t Be Afraid To Experiment

Exterior lighting is an excellent way to add some extra brightness to your home’s exterior without making it look overdone. However, you’ll want to keep in mind that you don’t have to rely on one type of exterior lighting — you can experiment with different options and find the ones that work best for your home. If you’re not sure where to start, consider the areas near your home where there’s currently not a lot of light. Walk around your home’s exterior and identify places where you’d like to see more light. From there, you can use your artistic abilities to brighten your home’s exterior
