The hallway or foyer can be one of the most overlooked areas of our homes, simply used to get from one room to another. However, we believe that the hallway is one of the most important places in the home as it acts as the pathway around the house. It is the place that welcomes us home after a long day or is our last glance back as we leave. Described as the 'brain of the house', our hallways shouldn't be neglected but instead be celebrated and given the same care and attention as the rest of the house does.
By bringing light to this forgotten space, you can bring it to life and take advantage of this newfound place in your home. Whether your hallway is cramped and narrow or it's a bright two-story airy space looking for a grand feature, we have everything you could possibly need to elevate this area of your home!
Most modest homes have a small but useful area at the front door that is used for hanging up coats, lacing up boots, and as a place to put your keys. It is easy to overlook this area of the home as its sole purpose is to welcome you into the rest of the house or get you prepared to leave. By adding the perfect ambience or the ideal lighting solution, you can transform this area of your home from a rushed and stressful place into a tranquil space that prepares you for the day or calms you as you step in the door. However, it is important to keep in mind that a small entryway is...small. We have a wide array of styles, applications, and solutions for lighting a small hallway, all of which will allow this space to be as functional as possible without compromising style and ambience.
A grand entrance deserves a grand lighting fixture that not only illuminates this large space but also acts as an impressive first impression of your home. It is important to keep this space well-lit throughout to avoid this large room feeling cold and uninviting. Therefore placing a stunningly vibrant chandelier or oversized pendant in this space will not only be a talking point of the house but will also fill this space with a generous outpouring of light. By filling this grand foyer with light and beauty, it will not only impress guests but will also create a warming and welcoming atmosphere that greets you and others into your home. Take a look at some of our recommendations...
Long and Narrow Hallways
Long and narrow hallways are some of the most neglected areas of our homes as they provide no functionality other than providing a pathway through the house. However, these spaces are one of the most overlooked and overused as they essentially allow the house to flow and connect with ease. By neglecting these spaces you can create unwelcoming and intimidating corridor space with no character or style. Adding a simple lighting fixture to your long hallway can make this impersonal interior a warming space that is more inviting. However, these lighting fixtures have to be space-saving and efficient so that they do not make the hallway more narrow and can also brighten every corner with ease. Here are some of our suggestions...
