Chandeliers

When it comes to lighting, a chandelier in a home can be a real statement piece. That's because chandeliers are often rather grand – but they certainly don't have to be huge or 'over the top' to be striking.

In fact, chandelier lights in the home are more popular than you may think. At KES Lighting we sell more than 200 different types of chandelier lighting, including glass chandeliers and chrome chandeliers, too. People love them precisely because they draw the eye when entering a room!

Part of the confusion about chandelier lighting stems from a misunderstanding of what a chandelier is. In the traditional sense, a chandelier would have been a large light with multiple arms on which candles would have been placed. The light they created would then have been dispersed through a room through hundreds or even thousands of pieces of cut crystal.

When electric lighting became more common more than 100 years ago, chandeliers remained every bit as ornate. In the following decades, however, glass chandelier lights have been adapted and modified to suit an abundance of tastes.

Ceiling Lights

Chandeliers are among some of the best ceiling lights you will find – take a look around our website and you'll see lights to suit all taste and budgets.

Some chandeliers are heavy, so it's always worth doing your research before buying and speaking to your installer to make sure that your ceiling can handle the weight.

Other chandeliers, however, are much lighter, and can be fitted almost anywhere. If you're unsure, check out the 'specification' tag under the light's description on our website. Many of our fittings have the weight of the chandelier listed there.

Types of Chandeliers

As well as numerous traditionally-styled chandeliers that would work well in a large home, there are smaller, more modern designs, too. In fact, if you browse through our selection of chandeliers, you'll see that many of them have additional photos that show them in a domestic setting.

Checking these out can be a great way to assess how chandelier lighting could look in your own home, too.

Another thing to do is to keep your eyes peeled the next time you are in your favourite hotel or restaurant! This kind of establishment often chooses chandelier lighting, and it can be a great way to see one in person. Or come and visit us at our showroom and see some from our collection.

Help & Advice

Are chandeliers out of style?

arrow
No, chandeliers are not out of style. While design trends evolve over time, chandeliers remain timeless classics that can adapt to various interior design movements. From traditional to modern and minimalist designs, there's a chandelier for every aesthetic. The key is to select one that complements your home's decor and your personal taste.

How to choose a chandelier?

arrow
When choosing a chandelier:
• Consider the Room Size: A chandelier should be proportionate to the size of the room. Avoid overpowering a small room with a large chandelier or underwhelming a spacious room with a small one.
• Style Matters: Think about the room's decor. If it's traditional, a classic chandelier might work best. For modern rooms, consider a sleek, contemporary design.
• Functionality: Decide whether the chandelier is mainly for decorative purposes or if it's your primary light source.
• Height of the Ceiling: This will determine the size and type of chandelier that will fit best.
• Budget: Chandeliers come in a range of prices. Set a budget beforehand to narrow down your options.

Do chandeliers go in the living room?

arrow
Absolutely! Chandeliers can be a stunning addition to living rooms. They can act as a focal point and elevate the overall aesthetics of the space. Depending on the design and size of the chandelier, and the height of the ceiling, it can either be a statement piece or a subtle complement to the room's decor.

How big should a chandelier be?

arrow
The size of a chandelier should be in proportion to the room and the furniture. A general guideline is to add the room's length and width (in feet), and the sum, in inches, gives an approximate diameter for the chandelier. For example, a room that's 12 feet by 14 feet could accommodate a chandelier that's around 26 inches in diameter. However, personal preference and the room's layout can influence the final choice.

Are chandeliers out of style?

Absolutely not! Based on our order books from cool hotels, luxurious properties and even 'regular' homeowners looking for stylish, eye-catching light fittings, we can assure you that chandeliers are very much on-trend.

How to choose a chandelier

There are multiple things to consider when choosing a chandelier. Start by asking if the room is big enough for the light you have in mind. If not, consider a smaller chandelier.

Another key consideration is style. Would a modern chandelier work best in a country house – or would a more traditional option be better? Think also about the drop – the amount of space between the light and the ceiling. As a rule, low ceilings are not well suited to chandeliers.

Do chandeliers go in the living room?

Yes, chandeliers are perfect in the right kind of living room. Equally, however, we've seen them used to dazzling effect in kitchens, hallways and bedrooms.

How big should a chandelier be?

The obvious answer is 'as big as your room can handle', but a chandelier doesn't have to be big for its presence to be felt. Other ways to make a statement with a chandelier, beyond size, include number of lights and its ornamental characteristics.

All that being said, a palatial ballroom with a single, tiny chandelier would almost certainly look like a wasted opportunity.

How low should I hang a chandelier?

arrow
If the chandelier is to be placed above a dining table, many interior designers think that around 3ft above the table is perfect. In living rooms, you want it to be higher than the tallest person that's likely to enter the room, so around 7ft is generally considered to be safe, though people do occasionally go lower.
