As a "senior citizen" I wanted to replace all of my outdoor fixtures with new fixtures that I didn't have to remove any covers to replace light bulbs. I needed a flush mount white fixture which was not to be found at the local hardware chains. This is perfect. I don't mind getting on a ladder to do it, but don't like having to juggle screw driver, fixture covers and a new bulb(s). I had it installed by a handyman who had it up in 10 minutes, so I am speaking for him that this was an easy fixture to install. I am very happy with it. Not a bright, bright light, but I also have another fixture close by on the garage if I need to really light up the front of the house, so this one is great for just stepping out the door at night. Very attractive and was thrilled to find it in white!
These outdoor light fixtures are much more decorative than most. I used them for my front and back porches, and they produce plenty of light. The bottom has an open design, so it will be easy to replace bulbs later. I had them professionally installed, and the only problem the electrician had was fitting his large hand into the bottom opening to tighten the center post inside the fixture. I am very pleased with the lights overall, especially the quality for the price.

Great Porch Light

This outdoor fixture is much more decorative than most porch lights. I used them for front and back porches, and I'm very pleased with the way they look and with the amount of light they produce. The bottom of the fixture is open, so changing bulbs will be easy to do. I used a professional electrician who had no problem with installation.
Ordered 8 and easily self installed. Didn't bother with the instructions as they were a replacement. They use 60 watt candlearbra bulbs and provide twice the light of those replaced. For the money these fixtures are an excellent value. The bonus is that you don't have to remove any globe to change the bulbs.
I wanted to update the porch light without spending a lot of money. I didn't care for any of the options at the local stores; this light is perfect. As it takes 3 bulbs, it gives off a lot of light. Maybe just 2 bulbs would have been better. My husband installed it in practically no time, so either the instructions are good or it's self-explanatory. It looks fabulous.
