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.
Some say their foyer is so small, why bother with it at all? I have had others explain that their foyer is so grand that it feels cold and uninviting, no matter what they do to it. Whatever the size of your foyer, you should make the most of it! There is no reason in the world, why your foyer shouldn’t be stylish. The tiniest of foyers can be made to feel grand. Likewise, the grandest of foyers can have a sophisticated coziness.
