Types of Chandeliers By Function
There are several types of chandeliers as you would have seen from the list above. In this section, we will look at the classification of chandeliers according to their function.
The chandeliers in this category, just like their name suggests, focus their light upwards. This means that the lights bounce off the ceiling to reflect around instead of directing the lights downward.
These chandeliers are the direct opposite of the uplight chandeliers. They present us with the traditional or regular style of chandeliers. In this case, the light is directed downwards without any obstruction. Downlight chandeliers are ideal when there is a need for direct and focused light in a room.
Asides from downlight chandeliers, all other chandeliers aren’t designed for lighting up a room. What they are meant for is adding to the ambience of a room. This means that any chandelier that is installed for improving ambience is known as ambient chandeliers.
What To Consider When Choosing Chandeliers
You don’t just walk into a store and purchase any chandelier that you see. There are certain factors that you must consider before making such a purchase. In this section, we will discuss the most pressing of these factors.
The position of the chandelier
This is the first thing that you must consider before buying a chandelier. Where do you intend to install the chandelier? Your answer to this question determines what kind of chandelier you will purchase.
Purpose of the chandelier
We have described the three different types of chandeliers by the function above. You must first determine the purpose of the chandelier before you decide on which one to buy. For example, if you need a chandelier that will also light up a room, you need a downlight chandelier. Figuring this out makes it easier to narrow down your choices.
You don’t just install chandeliers at any height, there are specific prescriptions. For example, a chandelier installed in your dining room should be just about 30 inches above the table. This will make it possible for everyone to see their food and each other’s faces without stress. In other rooms, you must consider the ceiling height so that people don’t walk into your chandeliers.
