For safety, hallway lighting should be placed every 8 to 10 feet. You can do this with flush-mount ceiling fixtures, wall sconces, recessed fixtures, or track lighting. Movable track fixtures can provide the general lighting you need for safety, while allowing you to accent any artwork or family photos to steer the eye. Depending on the size and length of your hallway, you may need to incorporate several different types of lighting. The team at LightStyles in Cornelius is here to help you find the perfect fixtures!
Stairs should be lighted from top to bottom to prevent accidents, with switches at both ends for convenience and safety. If hall and foyer lighting fixtures do not illuminate the entire stairway, then you may consider adding a chain-hung or close-to-ceiling fixture above the stairs. Sconces along the stairwell can also help will overall lighting. Look through the categories below, and please let us know if you have any questions!
