Porch lighting: ideas and tips for illuminating your porch

The porch is a place for recreation, relaxation, dedicated to the moments of our day when we are looking for peace and tranquility, perhaps at the end of a hard day's work or after a tiring activity.


The first fundamental point before planning outdoor lighting is to carefully evaluate the dimensions of the porch itself. For small rooms an external wall lighting may be sufficient but with large dimensions it must be integrated.


Another factor to take into account is the style of the porch and in a broader sense that of the house itself. Obviously, a stylized and modern look will not reconcile with “vintage” settings, where shabby lighting systems should be set up, or so to speak in a broad sense “neglected”, perhaps in symbiosis with stone walls or with rustic architecture.



LED Lighting

With this technology, there are almost no limits in illuminating your porch, which can turn into a real extension of the space of the house. With pendant lamps, floor lamps and table lamps, you can create a cozy atmosphere and make the garden bright and safe.

Ceiling lights and wall lights

An excellent solution for porch lighting are the so-called “outdoor ceiling lights” in fact they are among the best lighting solutions for porches. In glass, plastic or other cutting-edge materials, the ceiling lights are perfect for their ease of installation and just fix them to the wall to add a decorative touch to the space.

Equally decorative for outdoor lighting are the wall lamps, these too among the porch lamps are suitable for embellishing and enhancing it to the fullest.


The lights under the porch must be inserted in the ideal points to make the whole environment bright and welcoming, so as to emanate wide and diffused light, also ideal for guaranteeing safety around the home.


Choosing among the numerous models available is easy and to give the space an exclusive effect, you can opt for lamps with unusual lines and shapes, also to be combined with each other to obtain an even more excellent result.


Light tone

Another aspect to consider when choosing LED lighting for outdoor porches is the ideal light tone that can make the environment welcoming and relaxing. Generally the warm light is the privileged one, as it is more pleasant and able to make the external environment welcoming and safe.


However, even natural light is perfect to give the space relaxation and comfort, and also ensure high visibility. Particularly in modern environments, natural light is bright and calm to the eye, it does not cause discomfort and does not even alter the colors of things.


By following all these tips you can easily choose the outdoor porch lights that best suit your needs and make this space unique and absolutely livable, as well as extremely safe.



Decorative elements
