Hallway lights?

I'm running into a brick wall with my hallway lights and am sincerely hoping that someone might have some insight. I have a hallway about 24' long and 40" wide. There are windows in the hallway so it's dark. First, I ordered these lights:

But when they were installed they were SO dim because the frosted glass was THICK. So they got returned.

Then I ordered these lights:

http://www.lumens.com/90-Square-Flushmount-by-Tech-Tiella/PAAAIAMBPGPMBPDH/Product?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=+tiella +90 +square&utm_campaign=Tech_Lighting-BMM&gclid=CLmh057d_bgCFdKj4AodhQIAeA

But they're backordered and won't be here for at least two weeks and we're hoping to close in the next two weeks.

So I found these lights today:

http://www.z-lite.com/product/171-16b-c/

And they're in stock and ready to ship. But I have a few concerns. First off, there are several models of this light but I think I need the 3 bulb light (with the 4.5" mounting post) in order to put off enough light in the hallway. I really like the black shade but I'm wondering if it will be too dark in the hallway with just random "spot lights" at the bottom of the lamp. Then I'm wondering if a 18" wide drum is going to be too big and out of proportion for the 40" hallway...

So does anyone have any experience with either of the two lights and/or have any other suggestions?

hi,according to my understanding,the black pendant from Z-lite is not for hallway.it is for dining tables.
and also the lampshade of this pendant light is fabric lampshade which is not easy to clean.

maybe u can check the corridor light with clear glass diffuser as attached.i made this lamp for my customer before.antique brass bracket and clear crystal glass diffuser,total 3*E27 max 60W.

u can also check online corridor light with clear glass diffuser.and get the 3 bulb one.it will be not dim.

Hope it will be help!

Kayakboy, our ceilings are 8 feet. The Z-lite pendant is perfect. It can be used with a long extendable rod or with a 4.5 inch rod. I'm in the process of moving in but will include a photo later today. You can find this thread (with photos) on the Home Decorating forum. There was more activity over there.
