Get ready for guests with good lighting at your front entrance. The addition of a new outdoor fixture on a porch or front entry illuminates the area while it also acts as a deterrent against intruders who prefer a darkly lit front door. And you can’t have a more welcoming beacon for friends then a well lit entrance so they can read the house numbers and be confident of sure footing on walkways or stairs.
We pulled together the cost data for the most popular types of outdoor lighting fixtures – solar entry and solar landscape lights, a porch lantern, a security light and a light post in a feature called Outdoor Lighting Fixtures and How Much They Cost at www.diyornot.com. I hope you’ll visit us there to find the cost of hundreds of home improvement, repair and decorating jobs so you can compare the cost of doing it yourself with hiring a contractor.
