porch light options.....

allnewappliancesMay 24, 2011

Hi all - this isn't a technical question, more of an opinion one. My question has to do with outside lighting.

I have some lights around my house that are hampton bay (see link below). I need a big pendant light for under my porticol that would go with these lights. The hampton bay ones that I used for around my house does not have a hanging pendant, and I really don't have an eye for one that would match.

Any feedback is appreciated.....

Fairly common style. To be honest your best choice is to head to a real lighting company and browse catalogs. I vaguely remember some similar Quoizel hanging outdoor lamps. Or browse some of the lighting websites and search for hanging porch lighting or similar.

I'll make one more plug for local lighting companies. The good ones are quite competitive with internet prices and you get the added bonus of an experienced set of eyes to help in the process We are redoing a beach house and the local lightig company beat the internet prices for some nice pieces by about $15 per fixture.

Hi allnewappliances, I will echo the opinion of roadbike, as I had the same experience. I priced lights for inside and outside our new sunroom/screened porch, and after exhaustive research, visited a local lighting company, who helped a lot with decisions AND beat the price of the online stores. Their REGULAR price was better, without any negotiating. I bought Sea Gull lighting (which have not yet been installed, but I like the look of them and they are here in NJ, where I live). Lots of online stores show them, if you want to have a look.

Thanks both. I have a few local lighting stores around me and have bought all my inside lights there so I'll check them out for the porch light. I have exhausted all my internet searches b/c I don't know what goes with what! I don't have an "eye" for this at all!!
