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.
Kitchen Designs with Dazzling Pendant Lights. Pendant lights are to kitchens what chandeliers are to foyers, especially kitchens with islands. That's not to say the only lights in a kitchen are pendant lights, because often there are other lights such as recessed lights. After all, a kitchen needs plenty of light. Nobody like reading recipe books in the dark let alone chop food up with wicked sharp knives. In fact as you browse our gallery below (you can also check out our full kitchen gallery here), you'll notice that the pendant / recessed lighting combo is super popular in today's kitchen designs. The pendant light offers both form and function while recessed light provide the additional illumination needed.
Foyer Designs with Pendant Lights (Photos). Of course if you include chandeliers in foyers, many foyers and entry halls have pendant lights (chandeliers are technically pendant lights, but usually placed in their own category within ceiling lights). When we set out to create this gallery without chandeliers and instead include only the more narrow definition of pendant lights, the number of examples and photos is a lot less. In fact, it's surprising how few we could come up with. After all, in my view a foyer is a great candidate for pendants because often the ceiling is higher up so dropping them down a bit still leaves plenty of overhead space. To that end, here is our gallery. FYI, we add to our galleries every day so in time this too will grow with more examples.
