Try a Symmetrical Style
Humans are naturally attracted to symmetry. Whether it’s looking at a Rubik’s Cube, someone you find attractive, or a well-designed TV display, symmetry just works. If your entryway feels sporadic or unwelcoming, symmetry might be the solution! Utilizing lamps or lighting fixtures in a symmetric pattern on a bench or dresser is a great way to produce a nice, symmetric pattern in your entryway.

Utilize Mirrors to Maximize Lighting
Mirrors are utilized all over your home for both functional and aesthetic purposes. Not only do they help you get ready in the morning and make sure you look good before you head out of the house, but they also make for very aesthetically pleasing additions to your entryway for two reasons. The first? Mirrors look great. They bring a special feel to your home that nothing else does and can make a room feel more open than it really is by creating the illusion that a wall isn’t really a wall. Secondly, they reflect light, making any room brighter and opening up corners that may have remained hidden or brightening up a potentially dim room!
Install Recessed Lighting
Very common in many suburban homes, recessed lights provide a non-invasive way to light up an entryway and welcome guests in. If you are not a fan of hanging a chandelier or other large fixtures in your entryway, recessed lighting fixtures might be a great option for you. If you have found that your entryway is a little dark and don’t have a lot of room to fill up walls or ceilings with larger pieces of furniture or lighting fixtures, try installing recessed lighting fixtures in your entryway!
Add Architectural Lighting Fixtures
If you do, on the other hand, have a larger entryway that could use a little more light or character, adding a unique, architectural light fixture might be a great option for you. Whether you have a modern-style or more of a farmhouse aesthetic, adding a larger lighting component that adds depth and detail to your entryway might be a great option for not only brightening up your home, but also creating depth. If you decide that a larger lighting fixture might be right for you, come visit our lighting showroom in Edmonton today to find the perfect chandelier or ceiling lighting fixture today!
