When it comes to the amount of lighting, foyer always needs more amount of light as it is the front entrance. Also, see to that you do not provide too much of bright light. That may result in producing glare, right at the entrance, and this may annoy the guests when they step in. But if you have anything really attractive in your foyer or if you have a staircase there, then it is mandatory to use a bright foyer chandelier or spot lights. If you have beautiful pictures or paintings displayed on your walls, you can showcase them with gallery styled accent lights or track lights in your foyers. Accent lighting is always an added advantage for foyer decoration.
The foyer is the room that greets you as soon as you step through the front door. This is the first space and sometimes the only space guests see of your home, yet often foyers or entryways are neglected. This strikes me as odd. Somehow, I always think of the foyer as one of the most important rooms in the home. The foyer is usually where first impressions are made.
