We are renovating our home's entry. It is a small room (4.5'x5') with both an exterior door and interior door. The exterior door opens into the room.
The problem that I have is that I have a certain kind of light I would like to use, but I can't seem to find it in a height less than 13". Our clearance from ceiling to top of the door is 11". I'm wondering if we could find some sort of decorative recess dome that we could install in the ceiling (the drywall isn't up yet), which would buy us a few inches. I would say that it couldn't be any more than about 8" diameter. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? Or am I going to be stuck with a flush mount light? The house is 120 years old, and I am trying to match this light with some of the exterior and front porch lighting, basically to play on the fact that this entryway actually was the exterior in the original house, as we realized when we tore out the plaster. Any help will be appreciated.
