Placement

If you are replacing an old light you may want to keep it in the same position, whereas if you are installing a new one you will have a greater choice of where to place your outdoor light and the style of light you can use.  Check with an electrician as to where to install or replace your new outdoor light fitting.

Size

Balance the size of your front porch light with the size of your entry door, instead of the overall size of your home.  If you are mounting a light either side of your door be sure to measure the placement of your light correctly for each side.
