Hallway lighting can sometimes be overlooked during remodel or building projects. The light in a hall needs to be functional, but can also be dramatic and unexpected depending on the fixtures you select.
Ceiling fixtures should be placed about every 8 feet. Either flush mount or semi flush mount fixtures work well. If you have a high ceiling chandeliers or chandelettes could also be used. The bottom of the fixture should be at least 7 feet from the floor.
Another great way to light a hallway is with wall sconces. Wall sconces should be placed 6 to 8 feet apart and approximately 60 inches from the floor. Placing every other sconce on the opposite side of the hall helps balance the look and the light spread.
