Best thing to do:
Monica: Installing large-scale exterior lighting to dress up the front of your house.
Elizabeth: Agree — get rid of cheap, rusted coach lights. So many people forget about exterior lighting.
Worst thing to do:
Monica: Miniature exterior coach lights can look cheap. Elizabeth and I agree that this is one of our major pet peeves. Our best advice is to grab the lights you think you need and then look for the same lights but three times bigger. Lighting needs to reflect the scale of the front of your house and not just the wall space next to the front door. It is worth a few extra dollars.
Elizabeth: Amen, sister!
