Elegant Chandelier

An elegant chandelier makes a grand statement in this double-height entryway. Recessed fixtures provide additional ambient lighting.

Ceiling-Mounted Fixtures

A ceiling-mounted light fixture is often sufficient for illuminating a single-level entryway. This entryway's simple yet elegant light fixture casts light upward, highlighting the beadboard ceiling.

Accent Lighting

Accent lighting can be used to highlight a focal point in an entryway. In this space, designer Shane Inman incorporated a recessed light fixture to emphasize a stunning stone wall and a soothing painting.

Glamorous Fixtures

Globe-like glass chandeliers add sparkle to this entryway designed by Lori Dennis. Contemporary wall sconces provide additional illumination and accentuate the tiled walls.

Wall Sconces

A series of wall sconces draws attention to the architectural detail in this home's beautiful arched entryway. The sconces cast light both upward and downward, illuminating both the ceiling and the hardwood floors.

Warm Lighting

Candle sconces and a drum-shaped light fixture cast soft, warm light in this entryway. Designer Shelly Riehl David used track lighting to draw attention to the exquisite artwork displayed in the space.
