Foyer chandeliers are so important...after all, they are among the first things visitors to your home see. Set the tone right with our hand-forged foyer chandeliers, from simple iron-arm chandeliers to elaborate lanterns. Always keep in mind that the bottom of the chandelier should be at least 7-feet from the floor. If there is a window above the front door, center the chandelier so it can be seen from outside. If the foyer is extra large, you may also want to include wall sconces for additional light. As a general rule of thumb you can approximate the chandelier's width by adding the room dimensions together. For example, assuming you have a 12 x 16 foot foyer: 12=28. Therefore, the foyer chandelier's diameter should be approximately 28-inches wide.
