Nautical Outdoor Lighting

When most people imagine nautical or beach-style interiors, they envision relaxing, cozy, and restful spaces with rooms that replicate the feeling you get when you’ve just been away on an amazing weekend trip to the beach. But, what not a lot of people know is the real key which is to add thoughtful little touches that bring seaside nostalgia like nautical outdoor lighting.

Nautical themed lighting for outdoor use brings you the calming and effortless vibe of the beach into your very property. Your options vary as well from maritime chandeliers for porches to seaworthy sconces that offer the best form and function. Their stately elegance will not just transform your home’s exterior but will also add sophistication as well as curb appeal while improving your home’s safety during nighttime.

Before you start looking around for the best nautical outdoor lighting for your space, you first need to determine how much lighting you are currently in need of. Try this calculation when figuring out how much light an area requires: multiple the area’s square footage by 1.5 so you get the estimate of the required total wattage. For instance, a space that’s 100 sq. ft. will require 150W.

Observe your space as well. Take measurements so you can avoid making the mistake of getting nautical outdoor lighting fixtures that are too small or too large. It is, therefore, wise if you consider the position and size of each fixture you will be getting. You can make use of a paper template in determining a fixture’s exact placement and scale when it’s added into your space.

For your back patio or front porch, your outdoor lighting’s size should be a third of your door’s height. Of course, you should check the fixture’s sturdiness and durability. As it will be placed outdoors, your nautical outdoor lighting should be made of weather-resistant materials.

Nautical outdoor lighting doesn't just provide ambiance; it also offers security. So, make sure that your home's entry points are well lit when you've installed your new lighting fixtures. If possible, add lighting to the areas of your home that you want to be visible at night.
