3. Think the minimum wattage of each lighting fixture
To get the good wattage of each lighting fixture, you just need divide the total wattage by the amount of the fixtures required. For the continuing example, 180 divided by 2, the result is 90. The minimum wattage of each lighting fixture is 90 watts.
2. Think the amount of the light that required
A Hallway generally requires a light every 8 feet along its length. So, dividing the length of your hallway by 8 and then subtract 1 will give a good result of the number lighting required. For example, if you have a hallway with 24 feet long, the lighting fixtures that you need are 24 divide 8 less 1. The result is 2. For 16 feet long, you will get good hallway lighting by installing 2 lighting fixtures.
1. Think the total power of the light that is required
You should take the light with proper wattage. Measuring your hallway is important to decide the right lighting. Measure your hallway then multiply the result of your measurement by 1.5 to get the good wattage that required for your hallway. For example, if you have a hallway with 5 feet wide and 24 feet long, the total wattage required is 1.5 multiplied by 120. The result is 180 watts for the entire of your hallway.
