Why We Love Hallway Chandeliers
In large hallways where ceiling real estate is plentiful, consider installing a chandelier as your source of overhead illumination. As common throughfares that are not often thought of for their decorative nature, hallways have the ability to become bright and beautiful with an appropriately sized chandelier. And when paired with sconces on the wall or step lights lining the baseboards, you'll be guaranteed a well-lit hallway you and guests of your home will appreciate.
Where Contemporary Hallway Chandeliers Work Best
Depending on on the size of your home's hallways, you have the opportunity to fill the area with light from a variety of light sources. In hallways with tall ceilings, hang chandeliers to make a dramatic statement to your sense of decorating style. From quaint mini chandeliers to large, multi-tier chandeliers and linear fixtures to cover te length of the ceiling, the options to bring new style to the hallway is limitless. Modern hallway chandeliers are also offered in LED, making this choice of lighting energy efficient and that much more attractive.
Hallway Chandelier Ideas for Every Style
Although a hallway is just a common walkway to other rooms of the house, you can enhance its look and feel by choosing a chandelier that that matches your home's aesthetic. Here you'll find traditional chandeliers to those inspired by the middle of the century, as well as completely modern options. Give the hallway an industrial edge with a chandelier from Kichler. Or make a soft-spoken minimalist statement with a contemporary chandelier from Eurofase. Classic tiered chandeliers with iron features from Hubbardton Forge make an elegant and easily noticeable statement too. Finally, choose a chic chandelier from Robert Abbey to fit a retro-themed home.
How to Choose the Best Hallway Chandelier
As with any form of ceiling light you choose for your home, you'll need to properly measure the area of the ceiling to find just the right size light fixture. Look for dimensions like height, width, hanging length and diameter (for any style of round chandelier). If you are choosing a linear chandelier, be sure to note its length along the ceiling. With these dimensions, you'll now be able to refine your choices by a fixture that will fit best in your specific hallway. Find colors and finishes that are consistent with the rest of the home's palette and look for any additional key features you need in a chandelier.

Chandeliers serve a stunning presence in other areas of the home too, outside of the hallway. Consider a kitchen chandelier for a highly decorative element that lends itself to task lighting for food prep and cleaning. Or make an immediate statement to your aesthetics with a foyer chandelier. As soon as guests enter the home, they will be greeted and delighted with a glimmering chandelier hanging above. Finally, browse all of the hallway lighting available for other ways to illuminate and accent this space.
