Foyer lighting is an important part of any home decorating project. When we talk about lighting for lobby which includes both natural and ambient light. As the amount of natural light, a foyer is totally dependent on the architecture of the house and nothing much can be done about it, let’s just focus on the ambient lighting as well as ways to use it in the best way possible.
The first thing to do when deciding on foyer lighting is looking at its size. Is all or narrow? It is on one level or double? A double story grand lobby any day needs more illumination than a story of one of them. The second thing, beside foyer lighting, very important thing you should consider is the color of paint on the walls of the lobby. Usually, the color of the paint on the walls of the lobby is in conformity with the adjoining rooms, but if you’re thinking of repainting the walls, go for lighter shades as they give the illusion of space much wider and bigger. If you already have a spacious entrance hall, you can certainly go for some interesting colors, dark colors.
