Which lamps should I have in the hallway?

In the hallway it's important to combine practical, functional, and decorative lighting. Which lamps you should have in the hall depends on the size of the hall and how bright it is. In a smaller hallway without windows, it is a good idea to have bright lamps, such as spotlights on rails. Go for adjustable lamp heads, so that you can direct the lighting in different directions and objects. LED spots and strips can be placed in closets and generate a minimal amount of heat even if placed in tight places.

Wall lamps and table lamps provide atmospheric lighting. Illuminating the hallway with both functional and decorative lighting gives you a room that meets many different need

Ceiling lamps in hallway

Ceiling lamps and flush mounts provide good general lighting, as well as directional spotlights. We offer different types of spotlights – everything from smaller versions with a round ceiling plate, to buildable models that can be supplemented with more spotlights over time. To achieve even general lighting that takes up less space, flush mounts are an ideal choice for hallways. In a smaller hallway, check that all wardrobes and doors can open without touching the lamps.
