Selecting chandelier for a space is a multi-faceted process that takes many different, key factors into account. In selecting chandelier we take into consideration the following criteria: purpose, amount of light, quality of light, type of fixture, and if it is a decorative fixture. We apply these criteria to all of the projects that we do because the goal is to provide visual comfort to the spaces.
It's very important when designing a room that you consider having different levels of chandelier," Liles Dunnigan, co-founder and designer at The Warehouse Interiors said. This means incorporating lamps, overhead fixtures, and perhaps even dimmers within one singular space. "These levels of chandelier are important because it eliminates dark areas in the room, and the different levels create a cozy, warm feel as opposed to being harsh," Dunnigan said.
Many spaces within our homes serve multiple functions—and this is why dimmers are such a useful feature. When you want a romantic dinner versus dining with kids, the chandelier should be adaptable. Many people don’t have formal dining rooms and want the flexibility of a kitchen counter. This is where recessed chandelier with a dimmer or various switches comes in.
Keep in mind that chandelier won't always be the "star" of a room. If chandelier needs to be the star in a space, it’s usually going to be the only source and dramatic in style; like a foyer or a walk-in closet or large wardrobe space. A stairwell is also an opportunity for factor chandelier—something large scale and bold to fill the space with light and sparkle.
When in doubt, a large light fixture is generally a winning solution. In my opinion, small fixtures often feel like an afterthought especially if the room is large or the ceilings are high. When it comes to decorative chandelier fixtures, don’t be afraid to go big or go home when it comes to scale. Balance is still key. Of the above space, A very large center chandelier might feel lost with the grand ceilings of this space, so four lanterns are placed on the corners of this room to help with overall chandelier of the space.
when it comes to decorative chandelier: When in doubt, leave it out. Sometimes the surprise of not having a fixture in an expected location like over a dining table can be just the right decision to create maximum drama in a space.
Cleverly positioned chandelier helps to create designated zones in your living room, giving it a multi-functional purpose.
