Types of Exterior Lighting You Should Know Infographic

Post Mount Lights

Posts are super useful to have in your outdoor space. They can demarcate boundaries, such as your driveway or your sidewalk, and because they sit off the ground, they illuminate a wider space. Here at Shelby Design Center, we offer a wide variety of post mount lights that will meet both your decor and functional needs. Browse online, or shop in-store today.

Wall Lanterns

Wall lanterns are beautiful additions to your home or office’s exterior. They come in many different styles, from modern to traditional, as well as creative motif styles, such as nautical or rustic. All of our wall lanterns are made from the highest-quality materials and serve to light up your entryway, patio area, or outdoor living space. Hang a wall lantern by a wall fountain for added beauty and aesthetic value.

Hanging Lanterns

Hanging lantern lighting options are the perfect choice for an entryway by your front door or for a front or back porch area. If you have a covered patio, hanging lanterns are great for adding task lighting for both during the day and at night. Our lighting store offers many different types of hanging lanterns, including those featuring frosted glass, matte finishes,  or even a candelabra composition. Browse in-store or online today.

Having a backyard deck makes the Michigan summer evenings relaxing and enjoyable. With our wide selection of deck lighting, you can ensure you stay safe without missing a step. Choose from our many finishes, designs, and styles to suit your tastes perfectly. We offer both step lighting for decks, as well as deck lighting for railings and posts, too. This will enable all of the dark, shadowy areas around your deck to be illuminated. Ask a lighting designer for recommendations today.
