The Entryway chandelier is one of the most preferred lighting fixtures when it comes to function and beauty. Hanging a chandelier is an instant upgrade to your home interior and you can choose one that is a true reflection of the style of your home. With that in mind, here are a few simple tips you can follow in selecting an entryway chandelier.
Purpose: The lighting in the entryway should create an inviting warmth and set the tone for the rest of the home. That means taking into consideration the design, layout, wattage, and style trend of your entryway lighting when designing this space.
Size: Measure your entryway so that you will know the dimensions of your space. Once you have the dimensions, you can proceed to finding the right chandelier for your home. All you must do is add the width of the entryway to its length in feet. That sum is the diameter your chandelier should be in inches.
Style: Your perfect entryway chandelier should match the overall ambiance of your home. One of the important things to consider in choosing your entryway chandelier is your style. Do you lean into a modern, farmhouse, contemporary, coastal, or even mid-century? Sticking with the style you love will help ensure a more cohesive look throughout your house.
Positioning: In choosing the perfect chandelier for your entryway, you may start by considering the scale of this area along with other elements such as furniture, artworks, or mirrors that you might want to highlight. Look for a fixture that will complement the architecture and design of your home while casting the right glow.
Height: When shopping for a chandelier, it is important to evaluate whether you have a high ceiling or not. As a rule of thumb, the bottom of your chandelier should be at least 7 feet above the floor. Do not pick a low chandelier that could bump into your guests. If you have a low ceiling, consider a small chandelier. On the other hand, if you have a two-story entryway, you can go with a large chandelier that hangs lower and better fills the space.
Brightness: Larger spaces require more bulbs for extra illumination especially if you have a two-story entryway. For smaller areas, you want to make sure that your chandelier lights the entire area enough. For sufficient illumination, it is recommended that your chandelier must have around 200 to 400 watts.
Colours: Consider the main colour scheme of your entryway. Look for chandeliers that will complement your existing colour palette and interiors. Choose a chandelier colour that does not clash with your home's decor; instead, select lighting that complements the surroundings.
Installation: Most entryways have high ceilings, and they tend to utilize heavy and large chandeliers. In cases where structural reinforcements to the ceiling are needed, hiring a licensed electrician to do the job is recommended for safety reasons.
