An entryway or foyer is a transitional space that welcomes you from the outside world into the comforts of home. Proper entryway lighting sets the tone as you come home to unwind after a day of work or as you greet your guests to join you for the evening. There are a number of ways to create a warm, inviting entrance that speaks to the character of your home.
Large entryways with ample space can support a foyer chandelier, a large pendant light or a suspension light. Draping a cluster of smaller pendants from the ceiling at staggered heights is a contemporary alternative to an entryway chandelier. If you aren't sure if the fixture you're interested in will be in balance with your foyer, use Lightology's Chandelier Sizing Calculator to determine the possibilities and limitations of the space.
Chandeliers and suspensions will seem oversized in small entryways and rooms with low ceilings, crowding the space and having an effect opposite to what you want. Ceiling flush mounts and semi-flush mount lights are the perfect solution. These decorative fixtures hug the ceiling, offering style and welcoming illumination while keeping the space open. Our collection of ceiling flush mount lights has something to accommodate any interiors, whether minimal and modern or traditional with an eclectic edge. Use our Ceiling Mounted Fixture Guide to determine the right size for your ceiling light.
Some entryways have one or two corner tables, or perhaps a longer buffet. This is the perfect opportunity to incorporate decorative accents like table lamps. Entryway table lamps create pools of localized light at or near eye level, offering that extra bit of comfort needed to feel truly at home.
First impressions are important. Give your entryway or foyer the look it deserves with chandeliers, suspensions, pendant lighting, table lamps and other decorative home accents.
