Outdoor Wall Lanterns
Another important factor to consider for Outdoor Wall Lanterns is size. Keep in mind that proper sizing is a key factor when selecting your exterior doorway lanterns. In fact, the biggest mistake when installing a New England Wall Lantern is purchasing fixtures that are too small. Considering a few simple tips when selecting your fixtures will greatly enhance the final look and visual appeal of your lighting.
Per the standard rule of thumb, your lights should be ⅓ to ¼ the size of your door and trim. If you have a grand entryway with a high ceiling you can go bigger. In that case, opt for ⅓ the size of your door. On the other hand, if you’re in a tighter area, or for a side or back entryway light, try ¼ the size of your door.
Given these points, if the W112 seems as if it will be too small for your space, consider using one of the larger versions of this light. In fact, we make these Colonial Outdoor Wall Lights in 2 larger sizes for just this reason! Although they are shown with a wire grid, you can eliminate this feature if you prefer.
