Mendocino pendants by Troy Lighting

From functional step lighting to decorative string lights and pendants, outdoor lighting comes in all shapes and styles, and navigating the options can be tricky. In this week’s blog post, we’re taking out the guesswork and walking you through the best outdoor lighting options for your home.

To find any of the fixtures we rep in a showroom near you, head to our Where to Buy page!


Illuminate your walkways with step lights, wall sconces, and path lights. We love Hinkley Lighting’s selection of decorative post lamps and their landscape line, and for step lights, you can’t beat the sleek styles from DALS Lighting and CSL.

Where to use them: patio or porch steps, along your front and back walkways, in your garden/landscaping.

Outdoor Tape Lighting from GM Lighting

Tape lighting is our go-to for accent lighting- it’s so easy to use and has so many great applications. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re pretty much exactly as the name suggests- a flexible strip of thin LED lights or “diodes” with a tape backing, which can be adhered to different surfaces including aluminum mounting channels to provide linear lighting in thousands of different ways.

We love the tape light options from GM Lighting and DALS Lighting.

Where to use them: railings, stairs, pergolas, patios, and so much more.


Accessorize your outdoor space with decorative pendants, flush mounts, and sconces. Often, decorative lighting is reserved for the indoors only, but there are so many beautiful outdoor pieces available, it’s a crime not to take advantage of them!

We love matching sconces and a pendant for the front door or a gorgeous chandelier over an outdoor dining space. The options are endless!

Check out the outdoor lighting options from Troy Lighting, Hinkley Lighting, Sonneman, DALS, and Eglo.

Where to use them: front door, back door, pool area, porch.
