Post and pier lights are versatile outdoor lighting fixtures that can brighten up a number of different exterior spaces in style. These fixtures typically
feature separate components for the mounting platform and the light on top of it. This arrangement allows for a lot of customization in terms of lamp
height, light output, and design.
While post mount and pier mounted lighting both are intended to be installed on a separate mount, the difference between these styles lies mainly in their
bases. A lamp post is a freestanding mount that comes in a range of different sizes and styles, but typically is a taller fixture that provides generous
outdoor area lighting. Lamp posts can be a charming addition to any outdoor lighting scheme, bringing both utility and classic style to any yard, pathway,
A pier mount on the other hand, is a mounting base that is intended to attach to a preexisting architectural feature such as a landscaping wall or pillar.
These fixtures are frequently seen in places such as on garden walls or atop entry walls on either side of a grand driveway. Pier mounts themselves are
usually quite compact, but the lighting fixture can sit at just about any height, depending on where you mount the base. Because of their mounting style,
pier mounted lights can be a nice lighting option that complements existing outdoor décor without overpowering it stylistically.
