CHELSEA HOUSE CHANDELIERS & PENDANTS – The word ”Chandelier” comes from the French ”Chandelabre” or ”Candlestick” and the first chandeliers were nothing more than wooden cross-sections used to hold candles. Later chandeliers were created with metal and fine crystal but only the upper class elite could afford them. Times have certainly changed and we offer a variety of these exquisite lighting fixtures in the affordable and high-end price range. Chandeliers and pendents are available in a wide range of stunning styles, sizes, finishes, and prices.
Whether you are looking for a chandelier or pendant to brighten your foyer, living room or dining room it shouldn’t be hard to find the perfect fixture if you keep a few things in mind. Start with size. Measure your room’s width and length in feet and add those two measurements together. The sum is the right diameter for your fixture in inches. Although this is just a rule of thumb it does give you a place to start. If it will be used above a dining table we recommend the diameter to be 1/2 to 2/3 the width of your table. The average is 26 to 30 inches in diameter and has four to six lights.
Up lighting will reflect light off the ceiling and create a soft pleasant glow. Down lighting is a more direct illumination. If the chandelier has un-shaded candle bulbs consider a dimmer so you can control how much light it will give.
Pendent lights are single fixtures hung from the ceiling like a chandelier. There are various types: mini-pendants are small and are often hung in groups. Multi-light pendents are often used in kitchens, over dining room tables, and other locations where you need quite a bit of light. Down light pendents are best for task lighting and up light pendents are good for general ambient lighting.
Pendents should, in general, be hung 30 to 40 inches above a kitchen work surface and about 30 to 36 inches above a dining room table.
