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.
