Hallways are often thought of as simple pathways to get you from one part of the home to another. However, hallways offer great potential with their different footprints, layouts, and furnishings. As a part of that, the lighting fixtures you place in these spaces can act as unique works of art or simply add necessary lighting to the room. To help you decide what's best for your home's hallways, we've created a list of our favorite hallway lights and hallway ceiling light ideas.
Long hallways often need multiple lighting fixtures to brighten the space. In these cases, intentionally space the lights throughout the space to provide lighting through the whole hall and near staircases, doorways, and arches. In long, narrow hallways, it's wise to use the same lighting fixture throughout the hall so that the space doesn't feel too busy or cluttered.
Coastal style is all about warm, calming colors and moods. Although the central pendant light may not exude coastal style on its own, it masterfully fits into the room's subtle coastal style through the use of a warm metal and soft glass dome. Even if your light doesn't boldly convey a certain style like coastal, farmhouse, or rustic, it can lean into those schemes depending on what accents it is paired with.
There are several factors that go into luxurious, elegant lighting fixtures. Materials, structures, and finishes are three of the most prominent features. However, you can also elevate your room by intentionally placing these lights throughout your hallway and by using various heights, sizes, and finishes. This grand, elegant hallway features a flow of transparent chandeliers while gold lights of the same style decorate the nearby bar. While your hall may not be this large, you can still follow its example in intentionally placing lights and mixing finishes of the same fixture.
The structure of your light will naturally impact how the light is dispersed throughout its shape and finishes. This round chandelier from Oly Studio is stunning on its own, but when the rest of the room is darker, the light will pass through the light's structure in many artistic, dynamic ways. The shadows the fixture creates and how the beams of light disperse are all factors in how practical your light is and how it may accent the room through shadows.
Your hallway ceiling light is a great place to add a new finish to complement you room's overarching style. Gold is a finish often associated with modern, contemporary, and elegant styles, so it's only natural that the lighting fixture add that elegant touch with some fine gold finishes. There are many finishes to choose from, such as brushed finishes. aged finishes, and polished finishes to help you create your desired mood.
Round recessed lights are the most popular option available, but square recessed lights are becoming increasingly popular for contemporary homes. These fixtures naturally strike a chord as being different from the norm. Another benefit of square recessed lights is how they can complement sharp, rigid shapes elsewhere like in mirrors, rugs, paintings, furniture, and other accents.
MC Design opted for sleek black bedside lamps that complement the bed frame, art frames and other accents throughout this crisply designed space. In bedrooms, bedside table lamps are so important because they provide ambient light and task light (reading before bed). All you need is a good overhead light source to complete the scheme.
Hallways don't have to be a boring access point to get from point A to point B. Instead, your hallway ceiling light can serve as a work of art to dress up that space. This works especially well in hallways with tall ceilings or ceilings with insets, but even standard ceiling heights can accommodate small chandeliers, pendants, and ceiling lights.
In order to convey the proper tone in your hallway, you must consider the lighting temperature of your ceiling lights. These fixtures can convey warm tones, cool tones, or mimic sunshine depending on their specific lighting temperatures. This monochromatic space wisely uses warm lights to bounce off the cold black tones and create a welcoming hall. Whatever tone you wish to create, remember that lighting temperature is just as important as the fixture and the brightness of the light.
When it comes to decorating and finishing hallways, ceiling lights are an essential part of the plan. Even if you are solely looking for the most practical lighting fixtures for your room, you can confidently do so. If your goal is to infuse your style, then you now have the knowledge and inspiration to do so. Regardless, the hall is yours to design!
