Why Chandelettes and not Chandeliers For Your Small Kitchen?

Chandeliers which are less than one foot in diameter, are called mini chandeliers or chandelettes. Chandelettes may be considered as a good choice for decorating a small kitchen. Most commonly, the spaces where mini chandeliers are commonly used are bathrooms, over the stairways and foyers.

In some comparatively larger space, but not very large, two mini chandeliers can be hanged to get a good view. In some ceiling decoration, we have observed a design of four or more mini chandeliers in a rectangular position that has made those rooms very elegant and with enough brightness.

If you consider a chandelier for your kitchen ceiling, you must have a short height of that, hanging a chandelier from a big high ceiling is not a good choice, as it will not eliminate maximum light for the whole area. Chain of a chandelier must be short on hanging to get the best result. High or vaulted ceiling needs a big and large chandelier. A large chandelier is expensive too.

One important thing that should be kept in mind in designing a kitchen with chandelier is that the chandeliers are not recommended hanging on the space where there is a lot of traffic.

It may cause bumping of head with the chandelier while passing. This is quiet awkward.

Color of chandeliers plays a vital role in selection. You must maintain a contrast of the color of the chandelier you use with the decor of your room. A smear color treatment will blend the chandelier with your wall background and have a badly effect on the beauty of the kitchen.

Always choose your chandelier with the theme of your kitchen. Using a traditional chandelier in a contemporary kitchen or vice versa is not at all a wise decision. You can choose from some available and popular styles of mini chandeliers like art deco, traditional, Victorian, mission, Asian and Early American etc.

The latest trend of kitchen and home design shows a rising popularity of LED chandeliers. LED technology with its tons of advantages has acquired the leading position of lighting technology and chandeliers are not out of that. This LED chandeliers are energy saver, eco-friendly, with an attractive funky look and very appealing to the new generation people.

However, one drawback of this lighting is that the Led chandeliers are expensive and requires a precious power and heat management technology to install it. Otherwise, this is a very good option for contemporary mood lighting over a dining place or a bar counter.
