You are probably familiar with seeing pendant lights in the kitchen or in hallways but since many homes do not have foyers, then it is entirely possible you have not seen pendant lights for foyers. How do these differ from pendant lights that go everywhere else in the home? These pendant light fixtures for foyers are the first thing people see when they walk into the home, so they are slightly more elegant than other pendant lights. Have a look to see what we mean.

Buying Guide

The foyer pendant light fixtures in your home need to be welcoming and practical. Your foyer is the place where you’ll be fumbling with your keys, checking your teeth in a mirror, and unfurling your umbrella—among other activities; so you will need a certain amount of light. However, you also want to set a comforting, relaxing ambiance for your home in those first few entryway feet.

A good rule of thumb is that there should be 2-3 options for light in any space of your home, including your foyer. 1-3 1000 lumen bulbs would be a great option. We like multipurpose light fixtures because they often allow for this type of flexibility in a very space-saving, efficient way.

Your foyer pendant light fixture is often the first thing that guests notice when walking into your home, so it is essential to hang it in an appropriate spot. For decor appeal and optimal lighting, the pendant light should hang in the middle of your foyer and not too close to the doorway.

As a rule of thumb, your pendant light should hang no lower than 7 feet above the ground. This is considering you have a standard 8-foot high ceiling. For higher ceilings, use the same rule and elevate the pendant no closer than 7 feet from the floor.
