Hall/foyer fixtures can create a beautiful focal point at the entrance to your home. They can provide the ambient lighting that you need to greet guests and to assure safe passage into other areas of your home. The ceiling height of the space will determine the type of fixture that you should use. In taller ceilings and over stairways, large chandeliers and chain-hung foyer fixtures are most appropriate. Use surface-mounted and close-to-ceiling fixtures in foyers with lower ceilings and in hallways.
