The Convenience of Outdoor Flush Mount Lighting

Style is always subjective and depends on personal choice.  Some people may choose something very   traditional that will blend in perfectly with the style of their home and the   feel of their neighborhood, while others want to make a bold statement with a   decor that stands out dramatically from the rest.

Limit your style

Choosing a style that goes well with or blends in well with your   living style will give your home a more cohesive look.  A more modern house might look strange with   an old-fashioned stained glass, and a nautical light seems out of place on a   stucco southwest-style home.  If you’re   not sure what style your home is, take a stroll around your neighborhood to   see what you like (or dislike) about similar houses.

Add your own personal   style

If you are the homeowner, you will see and use this light fixture   more than anyone.  So the style has to   be something that you are at least comfortable with and hopefully love.  While browsing options,   Imagine how each of these devices would feel when you return   home every day.  Choose   something that makes you feel that you enjoy!

If Resale value is a consideration   for you Choosing a more timeless design is   safer.  Look for an   outdoor recessed light that will fit almost every home on your   street.

Choosing a finish

Although they come in any color, most outdoor lights have a metallic   finish:

  • Silver colors, like brushed steel, platinum or   nickel, tend to look more modern.

  • Gold and brass colors are more   traditional, while plain white or black are usually the most unnoticeable   when you want something to blend in and not stand out.

  • Dark surfaces, like Rubbed bronze,   are often the most versatile and go well with many styles and   colors.

  • Also take into account the color scheme of your home.  You may want to go for a cooler color like   silver or white if your house exterior is in the blue / green family or a   warmer color like brass or oil rubbed bronze if the exterior is in the orange   / red / brown family.  Naturally,   Contrasting colors can make the device stand out   and be more visually interesting.
