Your entryway makes a statement to anyone that comes into your home. If you want to produce a grand entrance for your guests, installing the right lighting is the way to do it.
There are many options when it come to how you want to light your entryway. Here are a few fantastic suggestions.
Chandeliers speak luxury. The traditional type with crystal layers will overpower an entryway in the best way possible. But if you’re looking for something more compact, a sleek drum or cage chandelier may be the way to go.
Keep in mind that, even if you’re going for a maximalist aesthetic, you will want your chandelier to fit in your entryway. Therefore, sticking to a diameter of 12” to 18” is advisable. And if your entryway has a low ceiling, the chandelier will need to hang to a length where it won’t hit people in the head.
Like chandeliers, pendants also hang from the ceilings, but most have a smaller, sleeker design. They may be the perfect option for those who want to add a hanging light to their entryway but don’t want to overpower it.
Pendant lights come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes from modern geometric to vintage looks. They can be combined in sets or hung on their own.
Ceiling fixtures are the way to go if you would rather not have a hanging lamp taking up space in the entryway. There are a variety of ceiling fixtures to choose from including flush mount, semi-flush mount, and track lighting. Track lighting is ideal if you want to spotlight works of art in your entryway or create a specific mood.
Wall sconces add a welcoming look to the entryway of any home, and they won’t crowd the area.
You can get creative in your placement of wall sconces. You can put them on either side of your door (interior and exterior) or install them in the foyer and down the hallway to lead people into the home. They come in a variety of styles, and you can position them for up lighting, downlighting or multidirectional lighting in accordance with your needs.
When adding lamps to the entryway, you can choose from floor and table varieties. A table lamp will require some sort of surface while a floor lamp can easily be stashed in a corner. You can choose from a variety of designs and try out different bulbs to get the perfect amount of warmth or coolness in your space.
Another nice thing about lamps is they can be easily moved around if you want to change up your design.
