Before selecting a new outdoor wall light, your should first consider what direction your new fixture will be casting light. For instance, open bottom light fixtures are designed for downlighting an area, whereas a glass-topped lantern is more ideal for accenting architectural elements above or around a door.
These wall-mounted outdoor fixtures come with arms or brackets that can be installed into tighter spaces, including areas that are between mouldings. Stars and Stripes Lighting's selection of wall lighting fixtures are made of durable cast aluminum materials with finishes that can withstand the outdoor elements.
Here are some recommendations on where to place these fixtures. Make sure the electrical box for your exterior wall lights is placed so that the top of the fixture is 20% lower than the top of the moulding. Also, keep in mind you should allow for the side door moulding as well.
