A well-placed chandelier in a two-story foyer doesn't just light up the entryway, but also adds character and ambiance.
One of the biggest mistakes that I see in client homes is that they have not thought about how the chandelier is going to look from the second story.
Let me give you an example. From below this chandelier looks fine. However when you head up the stairs and are on the second story looking down – now what do you see… raw bulbs and harsh lighting. It’s not a good look.
Here’s the tip: When selecting a chandelier for a two story foyer think about how it is going to look from below and from above when you are on the second story.
Take a look at this new foyer light. From below it looks good and now when I head up the stairs to the second floor it looks just as good. I am not looking into a bunch of bulbs and harsh lighting.
Keep this in mind if you have a two story dining room or family room that you can look down into.
These little details can make a big difference. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to a Smart Interior.
