Hallway lighting ideas are vary. One example of hallway lighting ideas is with pendant lighting. Pendant lighting is considerably more practical than other types of lighting for hallways. Pendant lights drop from the ceiling of the hallway to create pools of light. You cannot direct the light, but two pendant lights are usually enough for a hallway that is shorter in length. You may also use pendant lighting to shorten a hallway that feels too tall and imposing. Choose simple pendant lighting for a simple hallway, or choose a heavily elaborate iron chandelier for a Victorian home.
