Hall lighting question

Which makes for a more appeasing lighting in a hallway?

I was going to go with recessed lighting but then thought wall mounts would be more decorative.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Jim

What is your decorating style? Your hallway-including fixtures- should blend with adjacent rooms. Also, how wide is the hallway? Wall mounts could be subject to damage in a narrow hall. How much are you willing to spend? Unless you are building or repairing the walls anyway, wall mounts will be more expensive to install. I know I've posed more questions than answers! However, if you consider these factors it will help you decide.

Another option, if it goes with your decor, would be track lighting. The tracks could be mounted to the ceiling, and lights adjusted to highlight the walls. This works great if you are displaying artwork. By the way, I'm not against wall mounts. When we repaired the end wall in our small TV room I had art deco style wall fixtures mounted. I love them and they eliminate the need for end tables and lamps.

Hall way lights

How high is your ceiling ... low ceilings you are better off with the recessed lighting ... for taller ceilings go with something more formal like a semi-flush. With taller ceilings you can combine wall sconces with ceiling lights ........... I don't think you would like track lighting unless its custom done with a high tech look ... anything else looks trashy and sloopy ... go with something that looks custom done .. ..

Griffinmyth,

The ceiling will be about 9feet 4 inches. Would recessed lighting still work?

Also, what is a semi-flush. Although I probably have seen one, the name does not ring a bell.

Thanks for your post.

Hall Lights

Your ceiling is really to tall for recessed .. unless you have a lot of art work on the walls you want to light directly... I still would use semiflush fixtures ... they are like flush mounts that you would have in a hallway but they drop about 12 inches or so and come in a variety of styles and designs .. it gives it that extra punch, dresses it up a bit ....

Where abouts do you live in FLorida, I could tell you were to find a lighting showroom to help you ..
