How high to hang a foyer light

bgmthMarch 13, 2009

I am replacing an old foyer light. Foyer is 2 stories tall in my story and 1/2 home. New light is sort of art deco type pendant about 25" high, 21" wide with a 6 foot chain provided. One can look down at the foyer light from the second story loft and the "catwalk" which leads to the far bedroom. There is no cover to concel the light bulbs from above on the new light. How high above the floor can one hang such a light? I'd like it high enough so the bulbs cannot be seen from the second floor. There are no windows in the foyer, either. Thanks.
