A Word On Dining Room Chandeliers
Nothing steals the show more than a statement chandelier light positioned chicly above the dining table of your home. Fulfilling both a form and function purpose, an on-trend statement light is ideal for providing that wow factor and setting the aesthetic tone of your dining space.
Selecting the right chandelier for your interior can be more than a little tricky, fortunately, we have a few tips and tricks to share that are sure to help you on your journey to chandelier perfection!
1. CLUSTER EFFECT
One of the most striking lighting trends is clustering, which works amazingly well over a dining table. Choose an odd number of chandeliers (three is a good place to start). Cluster them close together at different heights to create drama, or hang them evenly spaced at the same height for a more classic look.
2. UTILISE DIMMERS
Consider having dimmers installed so you can enjoy both bright and ambient light from your chandeliers – perfect for dining tables where you might prefer brighter light for mealtimes and relaxing ambient light for after-dinner drinks. Dimmers are also fabulous for adjusting the direct brightness of led lights.
3. FINDING THE PERFECT MATCH
The focal point of a dining room is unquestionably the dining table. It is the feature around which the rest of the room should be designed. The right choice of lighting above the dining table must not only match the style of the table but also be geared for its purpose. You want your chandelier to make a decorative statement, provide enough light for the table, and avoid unwanted glare.
4. KNOWING THAT MATERIAL MATTERS
5. LEARNING HOW TO CHOOSE
When you begin your chandelier journey start by looking for lighting that best suits the aesthetic of your space and any dominant preexisting furnishings. After that, the exact style of the chandelier you choose is a simple matter of personal taste!!
