Outdoor lighting

mountbrookJanuary 14, 2013
I have a problem on my uncovered deck..... Original plan was to put a lantern sconce on each side of the row of lower windows. But as you can see...the door would open right onto the left one. What else can I do? Barn lights over the first row? Where and how many?

Try one barn light mounted at the division between each two windows for a total of two at the 4 windows and one over the double window. Then hanging ones under the deck.

The amount of light you need depends on how you intent to use your deck. If you are going to just be relaxing out there, an arched "barn style light" is probably my second choice. I would rather see you mount some small sconces on the deck posts to project light down on your deck. This will give you adequate reflective light without glare and is very low key for creating a relaxed mood. If you plan on dining outside there, the barn light is ok, just make sure it is switched and has a dimmer control.

You could try a less deep, slimmer profile light. That way the door won't hit it, because it doesn't stick out that much. Check out these from Lantern & Scroll (www.lanternandscroll.com)
