    I think they're in a great spot - maybe just update the fixtures themselves! Or are you looking for garden lighting?

    Those lights could be painted too unless you're looking for a whole knew look. I would check out Home Depot (or any of those big home improvements stores) and have a look at their outdoor lighting section!

    You have a beautiful home and the lighting could be updated to a more modern look if that's your taste. All of the big box home improvement stores hace all types o styles to choose rom as well as places like I would think that large modern brushed stainless steel fixtures would look wonderul on your home and provide an update.

    I agree that the lights look to be perfectly placed. You can add more ambiance with garden lighting and uplights. You can take down the existing fixtures and spray them black. I think that would be a great update.

  • If you paint these black it would look great and you wouldn't have to buy new lights

    Thank you for all the help. We had looked through so many new modern lights that we were overwhelmed with too many ideas. We were just wondering if anyone thought a specific look would help modernize I’m the house a little.

    Have you considering painting the lights you have? If they are working, you could paint with high heat black paint or copper.

    Hello. A dark rectangular lantern might be an option.

    The lights look good. Just paint them. Black, bronze, copper. Rustoleum makes paint for metal.

    I love the front of your home. I would just get some Rustoleum Oil Rubbed bronze spray paint and if you can change out the bulbs to LED's that is all you need.

    In my experience, many folks purchase exterior light fixtures that are too small in scale for the size of the house, or for the specific area where they are mounted. This results in the fixtures looking cheap and insignificant.

    If you do decide to replace these with newer fixtures, for maximum curb appeal of the home, be sure to choose ones that are large enough.
