How to use Designer Chandeliers in a modern home

How to use Designer Chandeliers in a modern home

A chandelier adds to the personality of your home's interior. It glams up the space, sets the mood, and triggers conversation among guests. If you don't yet have one, it's time you considered adding it to your modern home. But before you go out and buy one, let's make sure you're in the know the different types, styles, and designs of chandeliers so that you choose the right one.

Modern chandeliers for high ceilings have evolved

In case you don't already know, a chandelier is a light fixture that hangs from the ceiling. You'll usually find it in the dining room, but you can still use it in other rooms in your home, including the patio. A chandelier typically features a multitiered arrangement of lamps that provide ambient lighting.

Chandeliers are easily confused with pendant lights because of their similar style. The difference is that a chandelier features multiple lamps connected by a single branched frame, whereas a pendant light typically has a single, suspended light source. This distinction does, however, start to blur when you compare chandeliers with large pendant lights. A large, singular lamp suspended from the ceiling may register as a chandelier to many.

Choosing chandeliers that fit the function

Once you settle on the preferred style, shape, and finish for your chandelier, you need to select one that serves your intended function. The functions include the following.

  • 1. Uplight Chandeliers

    These chandeliers direct light upwards towards the ceiling, which reflects the light into the room and creates a reflected ambience.

  • 2. Downlight Chandeliers

    These chandeliers direct light down into the room. Since the light is unobstructed, this is a great option if you need both direct, focused light and ambient light.

  • 3. Ambient Lighting

    Most chandeliers (except downlight chandeliers) are unsuitable for providing light to carry out tasks. Their primary focus is to provide ambient light in the form of non-direct diffused light.

    Most homeowners prefer to play safe and go for a chandelier that matches the interior design of their home. Some, however, opt for the bold choice of using a chandelier that contrasts the overall home design theme. If you're the latter, you can use a classic chandelier device to contrast the modern aesthetic in your home.

Final word

Whichever type of chandelier you use, keep in mind that the main function of a chandelier is to imbue your home interior space with style without diminishing you make with the entire room. Furthermore, make sure the chandelier's position in the room is centered so that it's visible from all angles, delivers lights evenly throughout the room, and maintains a good visual balance.
