Entrances, Halls & Staircases

Entrances

Entrances need to be warm and inviting as well as being sufficiently illuminated to facilitate easy transit from one room to another. To create a real wow factor, a statement pendant is amust. For a traditional look try a lantern light or, if opulence is your thing, go for fabulous crystal .

If you have room for a console table, table lamps are another excellent way of adding layers of light – a table lamp placed either end of the console table adds apleasing symmetry to a scheme and will create soft pools of light to display your chosen ornaments.

Enhance your display with a mirror behind your lamps to bounce warmth and light around the hall – this has the added benefit of making rooms appear larger.

If space is limited, wall lights and recessed downlights area good choice. It is always nice to have a feature ceiling light as opportunities to provide decorative embellishment elsewhere within the hall are limited.

A flush or semi-flush pendant can add style without causing obstruction where ceiling heights are low.

Staircases

There is real opportunity to create drama here,particularly if you have a double height ceiling. Large statement pendants that cascade through the air provide the necessary wow factor in a modern setting. Traditional chandeliers on extended chains, or large scale pendants are also fantastic choices.

STYLE TIP-In stairwells, light fittings will be seen from above as well as below – make sure you are happy with your light choice from all angles!In practical terms, staircases need to be well lit and light should be directed to define the edges of steps.A bright overhead pendant positioned over the stairs will create a shadow that adds definition to the stair risers aiding safe transit.

Landings

These areas are often small, heavy use areas that need to remain clear to facilitate smooth movement through the space, particularly if being traversed at night. Here, flush fittings or recessed down lights are excellent choices, as are wall washers. It is a good idea to add dimmable lights as these can remain on at a low level at night.
