When people think chandeliers, some get stuck on those classic images of an ornate crystal piece dangling over a dining room table or above a fancy sitting room designed for show. No place can a chandelier create a more dramatic sight than in an entryway, though. Installing chandeliers in a foyer creates a striking interior that captures the attention of guests from the moment they walk through the door.
Single Chandelier Design
It only takes one chandelier to be a show-stopper, and when hanging only one piece, that piece can be more decorative than pieces hung together. With nothing else with which to compete, large chandeliers with multiple components won’t look cluttered or overwhelming in a space. This arrangement is the perfect time to opt for that antique French brass or Maria Theresa crystal.
Multiple Chandelier Design
While ballrooms can get away with hanging multiple chandeliers, most spaces are too crowded to make multiple chandeliers work. When hanging multiple lighting fixtures in smaller spaces, simpler designs tend to be less obtrusive, so choosing less accessorized chandeliers, such as shaded chandeliers, or opting for wall sconces instead, can save a room from looking cluttered with light.
