Front porch lighting...can lights and/or fixtures on either side

islandmom42March 2, 2014

Hi all. Love these boards. Always so helpful.

My question is...we are doing an addition where we will put on a 6 foot deep front porch along the front of our house. We had planned on putting a recessed light right over the front door with 2 others spaced 6 or so feet apart continuing down in front of our dining room windows. We are just wondering if we should also put a fixture on either side of the door or just one on the one side of the door. Do you think it would look okay with just the recessed lights? We will have a recessed light over each of the garage doors and fixtures on either side of the garage (not on the front by the recessed lights because of decorative brackets) Appreciate any thoughts.
