The proper height for mounting foyer pendants

Home Lighting Blog LanternA single pendant light is often the choice and only lumen for a foyer or stairwell area. Since the light is the single source for lighting a high ceiling and descending stairway, it should hang at least 45-48 inches away from the walls. Pendant fixtures should hang low enough so that the entire room is lit but high enough so that people cannot walk into or hit their head, on the actual fixture. Pendants should be installed so that they hang at least 9 or 10 feet from the floor if the ceiling is 11 feet or more in height.
