Split Foyer Lighting Question

8 years ago
last modified: 8 years ago

I posted this question in the Lighting forum but received no responses there! So, I'm going to be a bit more specific here:

1) In a split foyer, I'm assuming the rule that the bottom of the light be around 7'6" off the ground holds, right?

2) How do I measure the foyer to determine the diameter of the light? Does the general rule of thumb of converting the dimensions of width + length in feet and then adding those up to get, in inches, the diameter of the light, hold here too? If so, then what do I use as the limits of the room? the floor dimensions or the wall dimensions?
