Customlightstyles Wall-Mounted Lanterns
Outdoor exterior lanterns for wall mounting come in a variety of ways to be mounted on surfaces. When planning the placement of an outdoor exterior lantern, it is always a good rule of thumb to determine the style of lantern first. Your home’s architecture can often dictate the style of lantern you may select. If your home is of an English Tudor heritage – one to two stories with wood trim, a thatched roof, perhaps leaded glass windows, then you might select an English Tudor Coach light, which is affixed to the wall and sports a tail reminiscent of Tudor style horse coaches from the 16th, 17th and 18th century. Or, you might consider another English styled wall lantern that resembles the home’s windows. See the Exterior Lighting page on our customlightstyles website for more examples.
Italian styled architecture actually enlarges the scope of outdoor lantern exterior lantern designs that you can select from. Whether the placement is at the entry to your home or over a highly elevated garage with ornate doors, there are many different styles of outdoor exterior lanterns to choose from. Also, if the area over your garage is exceptionally wide, then an outdoor exterior lantern mounted with “moustache” arms that extend outward from the outdoor exterior lantern’s cage, will often lend itself to the architecture and scale of the garage.
Outdoor exterior lantern styles can be very simple or very ornate. It all depends upon the person’s taste, the home’s architecture and, of course, the weight of one’s pocketbook.
