How To Brighten Up Your Entryway

Don’t leave your front door in the dark. Brighten up your home’s entryway with a beautiful light fixture that will capture your neighbors’ eyes. It’s the perfect way to make your home feel more cozy and inviting this fall.

The first step is to decide on the type of fixture you want outside your door. Central, ceiling-mounted fixtures work well if you have a smaller entryway, but if you have some room to work with you can go with wall-mounted fixtures on either side of the front door. No matter which option you choose, you’ll want to cast a warm, wide pool of light that brightens up the front of your home.

Can you do the job yourself? If by “job” you are referring to changing a lightbulb the answer is of course, yes. But if you’re talking about installing a properly wired junction box and connecting a new fixture - leave it to the pros. When it comes to maintenance of your outdoor lighting, you can also do this yourself. Because they are exposed to the elements, fixtures can get dirty or become dull. In most cases, a damp cloth will do the trick.

Adding light to your entryway is a wonderful way to spruce up your home this season. Need help deciding on where to place the fixtures or which type will look best? Contact the experts at GEN3 Electric today - we’re more than happy to help!
