Choosing the Proper Foyer Fixture

foyer

It is imperative to have a properly lit foyer, as it is the first part of the home that guests see upon walking in. Choosing the proper foyer fixture is actually quite simple.

Fixture Height – In general, it is best to leave roughly 84″ from the bottom of the fixture to the floor. If your ceilings are below 84″, then try a flush-mount or recessed lighting fixture.

Fixture Width – In order to find a fixture with the proper width, simply add the length and width of the space the fixture is to occupy. For example, if your space was 12 feet wide and 10 feet long, the proper width for your fixture would be 22″ (12 + 10).

Style – Consider the overall style of both your home, and the entry. It should match any underlying themes of your decor and personal style.

Elitefixtures.com vs. Amazon

+++Amazon.com has become increasingly popular over the past few years and for good reason.  They offer millions of products at competitive prices. However, when it comes to buying home decor products such as lighting or furniture, it’s best to go with a specialized retailer like Elitefixtures.com.
+++Chances are Amazon and Elitefixtures.com prices are exactly the same. However, in the instance you find something for less, we offer a 110% price match guarantee on any Amazon.com product in addition to free shipping! However, there are a couple of things to compare between Amazon and EliteFixtures.com. Amazon recently announced that they would be charging sales tax to certain states (19 so far and will continue to add more states) which can make the total much greater than an identical order placed on Elitefixtures.com (we only tax if the item is shipped to New Jersey).
+++For example, a $500 Amazon order placed from California, would be taxed at 7.5% (not including county rates) bringing the total to $537.50, rather than $500 from Elitefixtures.com. This is not including the daily sales and discounts we have every month, which could even further widen the gap in prices.
+++Most importantly, Amazon also charges restocking fees for returns, with the restocking fee on some items reaching 50%! Nearly 4% of our orders on Elitefixtures.com end up being returned for buyer’s remorse, a common issue when ordering home decor products online. Unlike Amazon, we do not charge restocking fees, so our customers can shop with confidence.

*EliteFixtures.com only charges sales tax for items shipped in New Jersey
**Amazon charges sales tax currently in 19 states and will be adding more states.

Popular Comic Books Get Mashed Up With Lamps

At EliteFixtures.com, we think lamps are pretty super. Charged with the power of electricity, they can brighten a room with a single bulb and dispel shadows from the darkest corners. There is nowhere to hide from the Power of the Light! Which got us thinking… what would happen to our favorite comic heroes in a face-to-lamp showdown?

Here’s how we imagined it:

Popular Movie Posters Get Mashed Up With Lamps

Most movie posters feature “stars” of the production, but it can sometimes be unfair. Here, at EliteFixtures.com, we’ve been backstage to interview members of the supporting cast. It turns out our lamp friends behind the scenes seem to work the longest hours and take the least breaks of anyone on the set.

The lamps did get to do some stand-ins and shot alternate versions of movie posters, but despite their hard work, were never featured–we’ve changed that.
