Coach Lights Definition
Let’s start with talking about what coach lights are. Coach lights are wall mounted exterior lights. They are typically installed next to your garage door or your front door. They help provide lighting as well as add a decorative feature to the exterior of your home. Coach lights also help guide your guests to the front door.
Exterior Coach Light Safety
If you do not have coach lighting you should definitely consider installing some for your home. One benefit that you will want to consider is the safety coach lights offer your home. Coach lights help add an additional layer of security to your home. A well-lit home is less likely to be a target for criminals because they are more likely to get caught due to the lighting provided by your coach lights.
Wall or Ceiling Mounted Coach Light Fixtures
When coach lights first started being installed they only provided lighting for your home. As the years have gone by coach lights also provide a design element. There are so many different design options to consider for coach lights now. So how do you decide what style of coach light is going to be the best fit for your house? First you will want to decide if you want a wall-mount or ceiling-mount fixture. Remember the goal of coach lights is to help illuminate the area that you are installing it in. If you are installing coach lights by your garage door you will want to install more than one light. We recommend putting a coach light on both sides of your garage door/doors. Coach lights next to your garage door will be wall-mounted lights. If you have more than one garage you may need three to adequately light up the space. For your front porch you will want to take a look at how big your space is. If your entryway is large you may want to install more than fixture. When you install more than fixture you may do two wall-mounted fixtures or one wall-mounted fixture and two ceiling-mounted fixtures.
Outdoor Lighting Options
After you have decided if you want a wall-mount or a ceiling-mount fixture you can start shopping. There are so many different styles to choose from. You want to select a light fixture that matches the overall feel of your home. Take your time and find fixtures that you really love.
