Outdoor pendant lighting is most commonly used in a porch or patio. Pendant lights are great if you have a normal or higher than average ceiling. Although most outdoor pendants hang from a chain, with today's focus on well decorated outdoor living spaces, you will find a few that hang from rods just like those commonly used indoors. Keep in mind that any light fixture you install outside must be UL listed for use outdoors, so it is not safe to use an indoor light fixture outdoors. All of the pendant fixtures in this section of our site are in fact UL rated for outdoor applications. Most of these exterior pendant lights are designed in families that may include matching wall mount, ceiling mount and post mounts so you can easily coordinate the fixtures you need to light up and enjoy your outdoor living space at night.
