A – The same formula applies for the foyer as in the dining room. Add the dimensions of the area together and convert to inches. Example: An 8 x 10 ft foyer needs about an 18” fixture.
Q – How do I determine the proper height of my foyer light?
A – The bottom of the light fixture should be at least 7 feet from the floor. This may mean you need a flush mount or a semi-flush. Also, if there is a window above the front door center the chandelier so it can be seen from the outside.
Q – How do I prepare when selecting new lighting for my home?
A – First of all, know your budget. Next, know your color scheme and your style preference. Look for pictures from magazines that reflect your taste, and bring in color chips and fabric swatches for any areas that you are redecorating.
