Though you make your choice of style too well, you might go wrong with the dimensions. A very useful tip to choose the right sized chandelier is - add the length and width of your foyer and the number you get should be the diameter of your entryway chandelier! Also, remember that the fixture should be fixed at least seven feet above your floor. As they play a major role in your home decoration, it is good to select them after much analysis.
If your foyer lacks architectural interest, secure an oversized decorative wall shelf or bracket on the wall directly facing you as you walk through the door. I like to place them on the wall at least five feet high or higher depending on ceiling height. This is a great place to display an elegant antique vase or urn. In a less formal setting you may want to display a simple pot of trailing ivy to add softness. This is also a great idea because it keeps your floor space free of clutter.
