How to Choose the Best Hallway Lighting
Are you eager to brighten up your home? Have you recently purchased a new property and the lighting is less than ideal? Perhaps you want to provide an interior hallway with a greater sense of space. These are just some of the many reasons why choosing the right hallway lighting system is key to creating the perfect atmosphere in your home. Let’s take a look a few considerations, before moving on to look at how the team at Clarkes Carpets can help.
A Look at the Benefits of Bespoke Hallway Lighting
Hallways are one of the main focal points of any home. They are often located within key areas, such as immediately following an entranceway or a foyer. So, it only stands to reason that the correct lighting solutions should be chosen. Unique lighting options can also provide the illusion of space while offering a more inviting environment. The only possible issue is the fact that there are so many options to choose from! This brings us to the next consideration.
What Hallway Lighting Options Can You Choose?
Hallway lights can be segmented into several categories including:
- Pendant lighting
- Ceiling lighting
- Wall lighting
- Table lamps
Pendant lights are ideally suited to hallways with high ceilings, as these hanging fixtures can provide a modern look while still illuminating the desired area. Examples of pendant lights include drum shades, globes, lanterns, and statement chandeliers.
Ceiling lights (such as recessed fixtures) are a great choice when you are working with a limited amount of space. Lighting above head-height will brighten an entire room without any obstruction, and is suited to almost any sized hallway.
Wall lights (such as sconces or recessed fixtures) can provide a hallway with a sense of depth, while also highlighting nearby elements (including bookcases, crown moulding or artwork). Wall-mounted lights are perfect when negotiating with a limited amount of space.
Table lamps are the perfect choice if you have available table-top space in your hallway. With a huge selection of styles available, you can be sure to find the ideal table lamp to accessorise any console table – and brighten your hallway at the same time.
Choosing the Right Type of Hallway Lighting
A few practical considerations should be considered in advance. You should always take into account the dimensions of your hallway (its length, width and height). Also, examine how much ambient light is available. This can help you to determine the best style of fixture, as well as how many lights should be present. It is also a good idea to base the design of the fixture(s) on the decor and colour scheme of your home. The lighting styles should work in synergy with nearby elements so that you can achieve a visually seamless appeal.
