Chandelier Styles and Shapes for Your Home. Chandeliers can make the space in 2 ways. First, they can look amazing in their own right. A real showpiece for a room. Second, they illuminate a space and as we know, the light in any room can have a huge impact on the interior design. Light impacts your mood. In fact, while it's well know lack of natural light can negatively impact your emotional wellbeing, the intensity of interior light can also have an impact on your emotions. One example is that people in brighter light have more intense emotions, both good and bad. Examples of more intense emotions include wanting spicier sauce, perceiving someone more attractive and even reporting the temperature being warmer (source: Huffington Post). Interestingly, light can also affect what we eat, how much we eat and how fast we eat (source: Mentalfloss.com). Accordingly, the light in your home is a very important decision, both for aesthetic purposes and functional purposes (i.e. your enjoyment and wellbeing within your home). What is a chandelier? A chandelier is a type of ceiling light. Merriam Webster defines a chandelier as “a branched often ornate lighting fixture suspended from a ceiling.” The immediate question that arises is, how is a chandelier technically different from some pendant lights? After all, pendant lights such as the island/antler variety are branched lighting fixtures too? It boils down to the amount of branches. 2, 3 or even 4 branches are still pendant. Moreover, the pendant light is larger as well. But, once there are more than 4 branches with smaller lights, it's a chandelier.
Glittering Foyers with Chandeliers (2018). When you have a foyer with a tall ceiling, a chandelier is an ideal lighting option. You can brightly light up the entrance to offer a well lit entry for guests, plus they can look fabulous. However, if you have a lower ceiling, a chandelier is not the best ceiling light option because you don't want your guests to walk into the light upon entering your home. Like with most lighting options, what works best for your room/home largely depends on each individual space. Below is our foyer chandelier gallery to give you an idea of what different types of chandeliers look like in various foyer designs.
Kitchens with Chandelier Lighting. Chandeliers aren't often equated as kitchen lighting but when you check out our examples of kitchens with a chandelier below, I believe you'll agree with me that it's not a bad lighting source for a kitchen. However, any time you incorporate a chandelier into a kitchen, keep in mind you're moving toward the more formal look. Pendant lights, especially more contemporary types of pendant lights, are less formal. Chandeliers are becoming more popular ceiling lights in kitchens for two reasons. First, new houses have higher ceilings so there's sufficient clearance for smaller chandeliers such as mini-chandeliers. Second, there are a lot of different styles, shapes and sizes of chandeliers which gives you good options for the kitchen.
