With varied styles and some mind-jumbling jargon, choosing outdoor lighting can be tough. So, if you need inspiration, we have some outdoor lighting ideas for front of house that can help.
Outdoor Lighting Ideas for Front of House
Welcoming Wall Lights
Wall lights are a front of house staple. Employ in pairs to frame the entranceway or, use individually and fit centrally above the doorway.
Katia Wall Light - Brass & Black Anodised
Traditionally, outdoor lighting can be bland. Not great for front of house impact. So, we developed the GoOutside™️ range of luminaires to buck the trend. The wall lights in the range take two distinctive forms. Katia offers traditional design with a 190mm shade offered in three solid metal finishes. The copper, brass or aluminium shades are paired with a swan neck in either black or aluminium. Junko takes the same swan neck options and pairs them with a contemporary tubular (cool/tube-shaped) '99' shade.

A Pendant Perhaps
Comparatively rare, an attractive outdoor pendant can be hard to come by. Perfect for porches, verandas or canopies, an outdoor pendant offers a uniquely vertical solution for front of house lighting.
The Valentina uses the '99' shade, along with a matching anodised black or aluminium body. Or for a more classical look, Kay uses a selection of 190mm solid metal shades.
