Pendants - Pendants work equally well in modern and traditional spaces, and they add radiance to your entryway while still drawing the eye upward to create the illusion of a taller space. Styles range from single, chandelier-like pendants to clusters of smaller pendants. Use a series of small pendants to light a long hallway-like entryway, or a single, large pendant for a smaller area. To calculate the size you need, try using the formula that many lighting experts use. Add the length and width of the entryway's dimensions and convert it from feet to inches. For example, if your foyer is 15' by 18', you get 33' after adding the two figures. In this case, you need a pendant that’s around 33 inches wide.
Lamps - If you have the space and you want to add a little extra visual interest to the area, lamps offer an attractive solution. Choose from floor lamps, which add a stately presence, and table lamps, which work well on consoles and shelving. Keep the lamp simple, but add a custom shade to create a sleek but interesting lighting solution. Play with different types of lightbulbs to determine the level of warmth or coolness that works best in the room. One final great thing about lamps is that you can move them around easily, and if you want to quickly change the look of your entryway you can simply swap out the lighting to keep things feeling fresh.
