Smart Hallways Lights Tips And 24 Examples
If you want your home or apartment to feel inviting, it needs to be well lit, no space of your home is an exception. Lighting up your hallway may seem tricky as it’s usually small and narrow, which means that you can’t opt for floor lamps and mounted lighting is your only option. In case you don’t light up the hallway sufficiently, it will feel claustrophobic. But this issue can be solved, too, if you place your lights strategically.
When you choose your light style, you need to make sure you have enough of the light itself to make your hallway feel sufficiently lit. make sure that you place lights every eight feet, at least. Smaller lights with lower-wattage bulbs should be placed more frequently. Draw the eye down the hallway by placing a light close to either end. If you’re choosing sconces, place them high on the wall to draw the eye up and make the space feel open. Otherwise, you risk that whole medieval, torch-on-the-wall-of-a-castle vibe.
Stand at both ends of the hall and check for dark spots. Make sure the light stays consistent and doesn’t dip in brightness between light fixtures. Brighten shadowed parts of the hallway as needed to keep the space feeling open and inviting.
Pendant lights can make a statement in your hallway. Find one that really catches your eye and hang it to transform what would have been a very forgettable space. Pendant lighting is best for hallways with high ceilings. Otherwise, a low hanging fixture could induce that sense of claustrophobia you’re trying so hard to avoid.

You don’t necessarily have to rig something to your ceiling to light your hallway.
