Design Tip: Entryway Lighting

Entryways are the first impression to your home, so it is very important to make them reflect the rest of your home. But even the prettiest of entryways aren’t impressive without the perfect lighting. We have two very simple and effective tips to help you choose the perfect entryway light.

1// Shorter Ceilings

Just because you have a standard 8-foot ceiling doesn’t mean you have to use a flush mount light. You just need to make sure there is enough clearance for someone to walk under. Measure from the ground up. We suggest keeping your light at a 6′ 9 clearance from the ground.

2// Natural Light

The most important things to consider while choosing a light is 1) How much natural light do you have? 2) How much light does the light fixture give off?  If you don’t have a lot of natural light, you are going to want to choose a light with a lot of bulbs or is clear. But if you have a lot of windows you can choose a more decorative light option that doesn’t necessarily give off a lot of light.
