That First Impression

As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a good first impression, and when it comes to interior lighting, your entryway is where that impression is formed. When people enter your home, they’re going to look around as they take off their coat or wipe their feet, and it’s almost a guarantee that they’re going to take note of your lighting and decor. Instead of greeting them with the glow of an outdated flush or semi-flush mount light, why not install a modern fixture such as a mini chandelier? While your foyer’s ceiling height will play a role in what type of light you can hang, you can impress your guests with your contemporary tastes by replacing that old ambient fixture.

Make the Space Brighter

One challenge that many homeowners face when updating their entry lighting is making sure the space is bright enough. It can be especially difficult to illuminate the space when you have a two-story foyer or a tall ceiling by the front door. It’s not a problem during the day when sunlight is streaming in through the transom window, but once evening comes, you want the space to be bright and inviting.

You can achieve the appropriate level of brightness by combining different layers of lighting in your entryway. The overhead light, whether that’s a chandelier, large pendant, or other fixture of your choice, should illuminate the upper and middle portions of the space. Wall sconces, table lamps, and other accent fixtures provide light for the lower portion of the room. You want to have a good blend of ambient and accent lighting so that the entrance has the right amount of illumination, and that any unwanted shadows are eliminated. On the other hand, you don’t want the space to be so bright that it takes a long time for people’s eyes to adjust as they step inside the house. Our team can help you achieve the appropriate balance of fixtures, light output, and more.
