Finding the Perfect Statement Chandelier for your Foyer
Chandeliers make an immediate impact in a room and this statement has a lot to do with size. If the chandelier is too small, it can reduce the overall value of a space and make it feel dull, while having too large of a fixture can overpower a room and make it feel crowded. To best select a chandelier size for your entryway or foyer, measure the width and length of the space, add these two numbers together and consider the number in inches rather than feet. This then translates to the ideal diameter of a chandelier that works best to fill your room. In terms of height, a good rule of thumb is 2 to 3 inches of chandelier length per foot of wall height. For example, a room with 18 foot ceilings that is 10 feet wide and 10 feet long can accommodate a chandelier that is 20 inches in diameter and 36 to 54 inches in height. This measuring scale is particularly helpful for selecting a lighting piece that will sit dead center in your foyer or over a major piece of furniture, such as an entryway table, as a focal point. Keep in mind that on average, it is ideal to hang chandeliers a minimum of 6 and a half feet above the floor to ensure an open space where no heads are bumped.
What Finishes Work Best for Chandeliers in a Foyer?
A chandelier in your foyer is your first impression for family and guests to be truly wowed as they enter your home. A chandelier that makes a statement from its sheer size or sparkling appearance is perfect for an entryway and with the curated selection at 2Modern, finding the best one for your space has never been easier. For a chic and traditional aesthetic, whites,creams, and either nickel or chrome finishes work well with a tranquil palette and soft surroundings. For a more glam space or traditional vibe, gold, brass, or bronze-finished fixtures with crystal accents, offer a luxe touch dripping with classic elegance. Chandeliers accented with natural materials bring a touch of texture and dimension for coastal and Scandinavian-inspired spaces, while darker finishes like black, rust, or brown are best for industrial, rustic and farmhouse modern specific entryways.
How to Coordinate the Style of your Foyer Chandelier
To make the most of tall ceilings, suspended lighting paired with recessed lighting will provide dramatic, yet functional decor that elevates and accentuates your space. For an open and airy feel a chandelier with multiple bulbs and an open frame design can create a dynamic look without clogging up space. For a cool art-deco or mid-century modern feel, an oversized sputnik chandelier offers surface area, beautiful lines, and most importantly -sparkle for your room. For a more traditional space that is still begging for high-drama, a drum-style chandelier with a double fabric shade can provide the diffused light you need while offering a layered look above. Coordinate your overall style by pairing additional accents to tie your foyer together. If space allows, create an entryway vignette with a fabulous console table, flanked by luxe leather seating and topped with a catch all tray and trinkets from your world travels. With a host of designs ready to make an impact through geometric shapes, handcrafted accents, or brilliant finishes, take a look at what 2Modern has to offer to effortlessly accent your well-appointed home.
