The first thing to do when deciding on the lighting for the foyer is to look at its size. Is it wide or is it narrow? Is it single story or double? A double story, large foyer will any day need more lighting than a single story one. The second very important thing that you should consider is the paint color on the walls of the foyer. Usually, the paint color on the walls of the foyer is in accordance with the adjoining rooms, however, if you are planning to repaint the walls, go for lighter shades as they give the illusion of a much wider and larger space. If you already have a wide foyer, you can definitely go in for some interesting, darker paint colors.
Chandeliers are great choices not only to add to the dcor of the room, but to alter the way the room appears in terms of the height. For instance, if you have a very low ceiling, fix a chandelier that throws light upwards. This gives the feeling of a raised ceiling. Alternately, if you have a high ceiling, a chandelier that throws light downwards will visually reduce the height of the room, and give it a more cozy feel. When placing chandeliers above dining tables, ensure that they are at least 30" above the surface of the table.
Companies such as Barovier and Toso, Cenedese, AVEM, Laguna Murano and more have produced items with a world-wide reputation for exceptional skill and craftsmanship. Some modern Murano Maestros include Afro Celotto and Luca Vidal. Born in 1963, Afro Celotto began his apprenticeship in F3 International Glass at the age of 15 under the Italian Glass Master Lino Tagliapietra.
Say, the height of your room is 8 feet, which is the standard height of ceilings in the U.S. In that case, the height of the chandelier should be anywhere between 20" (8 x 2.5) and 24" (8 x 3).
