Like Lighting Like Chandeliers
The lighting in your home is as fundamental to the look and feel
as the furnishings. Chandeliers placed around your home offer a
way to create beautiful centrepieces that make a bold, while
Adding a chandelier to the entrance, foyer, dining room and vanity
room makes a statement about you. A chandelier with matching
sconces placed in the bedroom or master bath, creates an effect of
beauty and drama, while imbuing a feeling of warmth and security
throughout the space. No matter the chandelier you choose, be it
romantic or dramatic in character, you’ll create a focal point in
the room that brings out the beauty and elegance in your fine
furnishings. With the lights dimmed the atmosphere softens and
glows, similar to the effect brought about by candlelight.
Alternatively, choosing a chandelier with a down-light offers task
lighting and accent lighting.
A chandelier has great versatility in application. It’s able to
make a small room appear more open and airy, while at once making
large rooms feel cozy and welcoming. It can create an environment
of relaxation and comfort where you can unwind at the end of a
long, tiring day, or make for a stimulating atmosphere during a
night of entertaining. The effect of lighting cannot be
underestimated, which is why we offer only the best quality
chandeliers made by the top brands in the industry.
A chandelier in the dining room can provide a stunning centrepiece
to the room. The chandelier sets the perfect mood for an evening
meal, while also creating ample light when needed, especially if
controlled by a dimmer switch. The bulbs can remain exposed or you
can add shades to tailor the chandelier to its surroundings, even
changing colours for different occasions or holidays.
Chandeliers for other rooms should usually be placed at least 7
feet above the floor in the middle of the room or foyer. This
ensures maximum safety and enhances aesthetic quality. For ideal
placement however, look to position your chandelier between 8 and
9 feet from the floor.
Lighting is essential to creating dramatic effect and the right
mood in each part of your home, be it a place for entertaining, a
work space or somewhere to relax. By using layering in your
lighting plan you can emphasize the mood you want. Effective
lighting makes use of a mix of ambient, task and accent light,
letting you create zones within a room, and giving you the ability
to match the mood and atmosphere to your activities.
Overhead lights can be supplemented by multiple sources of soft, low light
by using lamps, candles and task lights with varying brightness
settings and or a dimmer switch.
