Entryways are the first impression to your home, so it is very important to make them reflect the rest of your home. But even the prettiest of entryways aren’t impressive without the perfect lighting. We have two very simple and effective tips to help you choose the perfect entryway light.
1// Shorter Ceilings
Just because you have a standard 8-foot ceiling doesn’t mean you have to use a flush mount light. You just need to make sure there is enough clearance for someone to walk under. Measure from the ground up. We suggest keeping your light at a 6′ 9 clearance from the ground.
2// Natural Light
The most important things to consider while choosing a light is 1) How much natural light do you have? 2) How much light does the light fixture give off? If you don’t have a lot of natural light, you are going to want to choose a light with a lot of bulbs or is clear. But if you have a lot of windows you can choose a more decorative light option that doesn’t necessarily give off a lot of light.

Can you tell me where you found the oversized chalk board?
Our client actually made this herself but you can find a similar one at Restoration Hardware.
Thanks for pointing out that when choosing lighting fixtures in your home it’s important to factor in how much natural light you have. My husband and I just bought an older home, and we want to update the lighting in the entryway area. We’ll have to see how much natural light we get and choose based off that so that we can get something stylish and functional.
