How to Size Your Front Door Light Fixture

Posted by Bay Chapman on

Sometimes finding the perfect light fixtures for your house in an easy choice...but then...WHAT SIZE DO YOU BUY???  What if it is too big, or too small? How do you pick the perfect one?

First step is to measure the height of your front door. The height of your door will help determine the height of your lantern or outdoor fixture. PROPORTIONS ARE KEY! Your lantern should be between one-quarter to one-third the height of your front door. If your are just using one lantern (located on the handled side of the door), the piece should be about one-third the height of the door. If two lanterns are used, one on either side of the door, they should be about one-quarter the height of the front door.

If you are still worried, make a template of each lantern and tape them to the front of your house!

If you are adding/updating all the exterior fixtures on your home, your front door lanterns should almost always be the largest. Your side entry & garage fixtures should be smaller in size.
