Buying Guide

Yes, there are lots of different outdoor hanging chandeliers that are battery operated.

In fact, this is a particularly handy option if you’re looking for an outdoor lighting solution that is fairly flexible rather than permanent, whether that’s because you’re currently renting the house or because you occasionally like to move your seating area around.

If your outdoor hanging chandelier will be exposed to direct sunlight, you could also consider an eco-friendlier solar model, too.

Yes. Unless you have practical experience in wiring external appliances, this is definitely a project you should not DIY. Running wires outside and weather-proofing them to ensure that rain, snow, or other elements do not trigger an unsafe atmosphere requires a special set of skills. It will be more expensive, but it’s well worth the peace of mind to have an electrician help you with this project.

How much light you get from an outdoor chandelier depends on the amount of lighting you want. That said, an outdoor chandelier is decorative in nature. It is typically meant to be less bright than its security-oriented counterparts such as floodlights and motion sensor lights.

The light from a light bulb is measured in lumens which indicates the bulb’s brightness and the intensity of light emitted. A standard 40-watt bulb generates more than 400 lumens of light. The more the wattage, the higher the lumens.

For an outdoor chandelier, it is recommended that you use bulbs with an intensity of anywhere between 100 and 400 lumens. Anything greater than 400 lumens may be overkill.
