Exterior Sconces on the exterior of your home provide a gentle glow, perfectly versatile for adding functionality while making the exterior of your home more inviting. You can truly illuminate your home's exterior with Exterior Sconces.Introduction to Exterior Sconces
One way to make a great impact on the exterior look of your home is to enhance the look of the entrance or back patio by adding some exterior sconces for a dramatic look and ambiance lighting! These sconces are meant for outdoor use and are designed with withstanding the elements in mind. Indoor sconces should not be used interchangeably with Exterior Sconces. These sconces are ideal to be installed along either side of the front door, on either side of garage door, within your patio or gazebo or screened-in sunroom area. You can enhance your home's look, make it more inviting, and that much more secure and safe as well.
If you want to upgrade the exterior of you home, upgraded lighting or adding lighting that was not previously there will do wonders. When you drive by a home during the evening hours, and there are lights on, this truly showcases the home in a way that other homes on the block without lighting do not get. You can create a grand or dramatic look, or a subtle welcoming quality with the perfect touch of lighting, such as exterior sconces.
You do not need to complete a total home makeover and spend money; Neighbors will notice the care you put into your home, guests will feel welcome and as a homeowner, you will appreciate arriving home to a well-lit area so you can avoid any trips on your way in the door and can see to use your key to enter the house. Exterior Sconces on the exterior of your home will help you make the most of your home's potential.
If you were to add a few exterior sconce fixtures you would also increase your safety and security by deterring criminals. Exterior lighting has been known to deter burglars. You can arrange for the exterior sconces to come on at dusk or when the sun goes down, or specific hours in the evening. This will make burglars think someone is home. This will also allow you to see if anyone is lurking as you approach your own home.Different Styles and Applications of Exterior Sconces
Exterior Sconces may have originated in the castles of medieval times, but they have truly grown and expanded to include so many more modern designs, more ornate, far past the rustic look of yore. You can find Exterior Sconces for the outdoor areas of your home from Lighting Expo in an assortment of designs, colors, materials, and sizes. You can focus on design elements of how you'd like the exterior of your home to look - and choose from one of the hundreds of fixture styles of Exterior Sconces. From indoor to outdoor Exterior Sconces, from metallic to a matte black finish, there is a wall sconce to meet your design requirements at Lighting Expo.
Sconces are still used both indoor and outdoor today as they were then, but minus the candle that had to be lit by hand. Instead, exterior sconces are available in LED Sconces with LED, energy saving bulbs. They can come on with a timer. There are also solar powered Sconces as well!Installation of Exterior Sconces
Exterior Sconces generally direct light upwards, and alongside a wall. They are installed directly into the wall with electricity running through the wall (no base). You can install an exterior sconce as a singular, stand-alone fixture, or in multiples, generally on either side of something, such as to frame a door. Exterior sconces for outdoor use can be adhered to any part of your home, whether it be by garage door or front door, or back patio.
It is important to properly measure the size of the home and height where you are placing the sconce; You don't want to have a very large home and choose a smaller sconce- it will not look correct and won't light up as you need. Exterior Sconces should generally be placed on the front of your home at least 60 inches from the ground. Also, remember to hire an electrician if the work involved in installing your outdoor sconce is beyond your realm of expertise.How to Choose the Best Exterior Sconces
