Front Porch Lighting ...

... specifically by your front door, what have you done? Lanterns on the side? Hanging over head? Flush mount over head? Some combination?

Here is why I am asking. I cheaped out and opted against the arched window over the door, later to realize that with the arched barrell, it should have had the arched window.

Thought I could create my own arch with stone. I think it is going to work out okay.

But before the stone was put up, I thought I might need to get a large hanging light to help fill in the space. Then it was looking like maybe I didnt need such a large hanging light.

Then it was looking like maybe a flush mount would do.

Now I am wondering if I really even need that. I can wire the 2 lights on the side of the door on a separate switch in order to light up only the front door when needed.

So I was just curious what others have done. Pictures would be awesome!
