Captivating Foyer Lighting

Norburn Lighting Foyer Lighting

Underestimating the value of foyer lighting is like going on a date or an interview without
introducing yourself; you miss the opportunity of making a good first impression.

With Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching, make the foyer of your home a place that
welcomes and captivates your guests the moment they walk through the door.

1) Low Ceiling Foyers

In foyers with low ceilings, a flush-mount or semi-flush mount is a great way to add a decorative piece while keeping in mind any height restrictions.

The Autumn, finished in chrome, captures the appearance of frost that coats the branches in the crisp Autumn air.

2) High Ceiling Foyers

Taller ceilings allows for more grandiose scale fixtures that make a bold statement. The Glacier Ave Collection is more than twice the size of an average person, with a height of 156 inches or 13 feet.

LEDs are embedded in each crystal that cascades down to replicate the appearance of glacier ice.

Industrial/Loft Inspired Lighting

The industrial/loft style embraces raw, unfinished, and exposed elements that give an overall relaxed and casual feel. Exposed brick walls, beams, unfinished wood floors, and concrete are some of the characteristics associated with an industrial-loft.

 

Here are some products that can help add an industrial style to your space:

 1. Rockport

The Swing 1-Light pendant has an open-concept design that features a vintage Edison bulb at the center, and uses mix metal accents of vintage bronze. The exposed bulb design incorporates the “raw” characteristic of industrial style, and defies past faux pas with the use of mix metals. 

 

3. Gastown

The Gastown 5-Light pendant has a meshed graphite shade with rich dark tones reminiscent of steel warehouse windows.

4. Rebar Studio

Rebar Studio

The Rebar Studio chandelier is designed with reinforcing bars, commonly used in construction projects to support concrete. The reinforcing bars are wrapped around the outer shade, while the inner shade is made of a metal mesh.

Pendant Light Use & Placement

Pendant lights are ideal for general, task, mood, and decorative lighting. Typically placed over a kitchen island, dining room table, game surface like a billiard table. They are also used in hallways. Below, we elaborate on the placement and usage of pendant lights in common areas.

 

Pendant Light Use & Placement over a Kitchen Island

Hanging Pendant Height KitchenTask lighting is important in a working room such as the kitchen. Pendant lights are commonly hung over kitchen islands providing adequate task lighting while also providing an opportunity to enhance the kitchen design.

When hanging a pendant light over a kitchen island, the pendant should be hung 30 to 40 inches above the island surface. Because kitchen islands are where family and guests gather, you should consider their interactions at the island when deciding on how low to hang your pendant. If the island has a cooking area, the pendant should not be a nuisance to the person cooking. If the island is used for homework or other work, the pendant should be hung low enough to provide sufficient light for reading.

 

 

Pendant Light Use & Placement over a Dining Room Table
DiningRoom_Pendant Height

Traditionally, a chandelier is used over a dining room table but you can change the  look and style by using a pendant fixture with dramatic results

Try hanging pendant lights so the bottom of the fixture is approximately 30 to 36 inches above the dining room table surface. This allows for maximum lighting without the fixture interfering with the area. If you have a smaller dining room table or are looking to create a more intimate setting, hang your pendant light lower. It is important to note that the fixture is not hanging so low that it creates a glare in your eyes or interferes with people conversing at the table.

Pendant Light Use & Placement over a Billiard (Pool) Table

Multi-light pendants are common pool table lights. When playing pool, direct illumination in addition to ambient lighting is necessary. Downward multi light pendants are the best fixture type to use because they illuminate the playing surface, eliminate glare and shadows and provide excellent illumination. When being used over a billiard table, the pendant light fixture should hang approximately 32 to 36 inches over the playing surface.
