Entry lighting is extremely important. Having a light and a switch close at hand as you enter your home or work area makes it easy to quickly place outdoor gear in its preferred location and prevents accidents. No one loves stumbling over boots or pet toys that might have been left near the door. It can also be a security measure, especially if your home security system includes surveillance cameras. Having the doorway lighted makes it easier for cameras to record activity in the area. Fixtures can be utilitarian in nature, or they can be decorative but should match the other décor.
