Lighting In Hallway Of Home

The chandelier in your entryway or hall is among the most conspicuous objects in the space, an important component that plays the practical role of providing proper illumination and a great tool for making a positive first impression on your guests. Here are a few tips about how to find the best chandelier:

  • Consider the features of your entryway – the height of the ceiling and the width of the room are very important. As a general rule, to create an elegant and attractive space, there must be an 84-inch distance between the bottom of the chandelier and the floor – if your ceiling is lower than that, installing a chandelier might not be the best idea. To be able to pick the best piece, you need to calculate the maximum size of your chandelier as well – if your entryway is 10 inches wide and 15 inches long, the space can accommodate a chandelier that is up to 25 inches wide;
  • Consider the existing style and decoration – you can choose to contrast traditional furniture with a sleek, modern chandelier or modern furniture with an elaborate lamp or you can choose a chandelier of a style that matches the overall style of the space.  It is worth the extra money to have it installed by Denver electricians for safety as well as appearance.
