This light completes a set of three different sizes I got in this same line of fixtures. One for my front porch, one at the back door, and the large one for my driveway. I was surprised how light weight it is but it is nice when it comes to installing it by yourself. Even though it doesn't weigh much it is still a nice solid fixture and it looks pretty cool on my house. Simple installation especially if you are replacing an already existing fixture.

I got this light fixture because it is one of three sizes in the same line of lights. I got this one for my front door, one for my back door, and the large one for my driveway. I should have painted my house first because this looks all fancy compared to the rest of my house. I replaced an old light fixture so it was easy to swap out. I was concerned about how light weight it was when I pulled it from the box but it is pretty high quality.

This thing is huge! I would compare the size of it to the lights you see on the farms above a barn in Iowa. I got this one for the side of my house to light up my driveway. I didn't like how the last one shined outward toward the neighbors house rather than toward the ground. This looks really nice and for its size it actually isn't all that heavy but feels sturdy if that makes any sense. I am a DIYer so installing this was a snap. I would like to add a light sensor to it so it would be a dawn to dusk light but for now it is just fine. I love that it looks fancy and modern.

This Home Decorators Collection oil rubbed bronze, wall mounted, bell shaped light is very stylish and dark-sky compliant. You are probably asking what is a dark-skylight fixture? It’s a light fixture designed to help reduce the amount of light pollution. Light pollution is mostly caused by the over use of poorly designed lighting fixtures. When picking modern outdoor lighting fixtures and want to ensure they are environment friendly, check to see that they’re fully shielded so the light is pointing downward to allow more light to be directed to the ground. It is powder coated which keeps it shiny and durable for years of use. I do have one quality issue. I have two of these fixtures, a small and a large bell size. The small bell because of its size is very strong but the large one is very flimsy where the bell attaches to the mounting bracket. it tapers down where it attaches to the bell and I have even taken it apart and tightened the fastening screw but that helped very little. You can easily flex the two pieces. It isn't going to fall apart and everything else is strong, This fixture looks nice, is affordable and was easy to install so I do recommend them but lowered the quality score on the larger one.

This rubbed Bronze lantern is very nice looking. It looks great on my 100+ year old farm house. This wall mount outdoor light fixture is well made and appears to be made of good quality material. The color and appearance of this light fixture is unique to other light fixtures I had considered. I like this style and will purchase another one for my back door also.

RE: 1-Light Oil Rubbed Bronze Outdoor Wall Mount Lantern Dark Sky Compliant I recently installed a doorway leading out of the garage and was looking for an outdoor light. This light appears well constructed and has a good weight to it. Installation was straight-forward and fairly quickly. Be sure to install a gang box and don't just bolt to the exterior wall.

I installed the 1-Light Oil Rubbed Bronze Outdoor Wall Mount Lantern Dark Sky Compliant over the entry door to our barn. Installation was simple utilizing the hardware provided and attaching it to an existing light mounting box. It illuminates the entryway perfectly without casting unwanted lights and shadows. It allows our yard to still have the dark sky effect while providing adequate illumination where needed.

Very Very Nice fixture, Finish is nicer than expected. Very easy to install and replaced an existing fixture outside of the house. Comes with everything you need to install. Light will throw downward so beware as it does not contain any glass. I would recommend this fixture to family and friends. Remember to shut of the circuit before replacing the fixture.

This wall mount lantern looks like a giant bell and I love it!! I didn't envision it looking quite as large as it is! The back round plate is approx. 6" round. The entire fixture measures approx. 15" L including the ring that is on top, and approx. 12" W at the bottom of the bell. The bell itself is solid black with gold rim accents and the inside is white. I really love the fixture and feel that the shape of it gives a very traditional or colonial look to our front porch!

I like the bell shape of this fixture with a decorative ring on top. The light comes fully assembled and ready to install. The housing is deep, so the bulb is concealed and not visible inside the light. The fixture is made entirely of metal with a powder coated finish, and must be hardwired. The fixture is well made but lighter weight than I expected it would be. It’s a simple 2 wire, plus a ground wire installation. The mounting plate fits to a standard 4.5-inch diameter round electrical box. The lamp accepts a single standard base bulb (not included) up to 60-watts max. The exterior finish is dark bronze with brass accents, while the interior is white to better reflect the light. Installation instructions, a mounting bracket, screws, and a couple of orange wire nuts are included. This fixture is available in two sizes, large and small. Having just installed the fixture, I’m not sure how well the powder coated steel will hold up to the elements, so time will tell, but for the price, I would recommend it

I purchased this outdoor light for my front porch, I had not realized how large this would be and is easily seen from the road. A lightbulb is needed for this lantern, but it is a very and extremely light weight. I would not have thought for as large as this light is that it would be so light. It made the installation even easier since you don't need more than one person for the installation. Instructions are easy to follow and gives an updated but rustic look to any home.

Very pleased with the actual outside light. Very simple design which helps it blend in with almost any outside decor. The best feature is the fact that it puts all of the light down, not lighting up a wide area. I have mine lighting up the driveway on either side of my garage door. Very easy to install. Clear instructions. I have only had it about 10 days so time will tell if all goes well. So far, I have had some neighbors express a dislike of the design.

I know Dark Sky is a mixed blessing, doing good to preserve the night sky, while also limiting light that is thrown out to light up your cars parked outside, light the neighborhoods you walk in, etc. But I also know there are places that require this kind of fixture and if so, this is a great choice. The finish is atypical of outdoor fixtures, however the finish seems like it is going to resist rust because of what seems like a heavy powder coating and yes it does have that good rubbed bronze look. Installation is easy, takes literally about 10 minutes if you have ever replaced your existing fixture. If not, you might have to reconfigure things so that it is ready to handle the new style of hardware used on most outdoor fixtures these days. No biggie though and this can add 30 minutes until you figure out a solution if not an avid DIY'r. The good part is that this is a lightweight fixture, something you will appreciate while you are trying to do the install. The light is decent and plentiful below and out as much as is possible. It says it is suitable for damp locations and I'm sure it is, time will tell. I've lost multiple light fixtures due to rain, and am hopeful that this stands the test of time - I think it will because the water cannot run down into unit as it is a bell shape. It takes a 60 watt bulb and while it says it can do incandescent, CFL, and LED, I tried it to be sure - it does work with all. And it works with a timer switch that I currently have, that others have not been compatible with, but this fixture is fine. This is a simple install, a great first time DIY project or for anyone who is experienced. It won't take long, it will drastically change the appearance of the area you place it into, and you'll likely get quite a few compliments on this.
