Home Light Fixtures To Brighten Your Hallways

Chandeliers, ceiling fans, and other large light fixtures are usually the go-to fixtures that people incorporate into a room to provide additional lighting and elevate the design in a space. However, when it comes to lighting a hallway, it takes some creativity and layering to create additional illumination without making the area feel smaller. Light fixtures like recessed lights, wall sconces, pendants, and lamps are a few fixtures you can consider when selecting your hallway lighting design. Below, we will explain the best placement for each light fixture so you can create a balanced lighting design throughout your hallway.

Different Hallway Light Fixtures and Where To Place Them

Now that you know some of the best light fixtures to incorporate into your hallway lighting design, we will provide some recommendations on where to place them so that you have a balanced lighting design throughout the length of your hallway.

  • Pendant Lighting - If you want to make a statement, while also brightening the area, consider pendant lights in your hallway. They create depth and dimension, and work great in hallways with higher ceilings. The best part? We at lighting(one) of Cincinnati have a large selection of designs to choose from, so you can match the decor in your hallway with your lights to harmonize the area from floor to ceiling.
  • Wall Sconces - Most people assume additional lighting in a hallway needs to come from the ceiling. We at lighting(one) of Cincinnati are here to tell you that’s not your only option! Wall sconces are a great choice, especially for wider hallways. When selecting your wall sconces for your hallway, consider the width of your hallway, and size them accordingly. If you have a narrower hallway, look for wall sconces on the smaller side to prevent them encroaching too far into the walking area. If you have a wider hallway, you can choose a larger fixture since you have more breathing room.
  • Recessed Lighting - A simple, yet very effective lighting option is recessed lighting. If you feel your hallway is dark and lacking the proper illumination, consider installing more recessed lighting to instantly brighten the space. A major benefit of recessed lights is they don’t hang down at all, so they will keep the space feeling open and inviting.
  • When it comes to creating the perfect lighting design for your home, we know you want to make sure you do it right. That’s why we offer consultations with our expert lighting designers to help you select the right lighting fixtures for your home.
