The purchase of a Kichler Chandelier is a great way to enhance the interior of your home. Kichler Chandeliers come in a variety of price points, styles and sizes. Kichler is one of the most recognized names in the lighting business. The first thing you might want to do is decide on what style of Kichler Chandelier you want. There are 3 basic styles of lighting today. Traditional, transitional, and contemporary.
Traditional is defined by a comfortable look. It is often characterized as classic and also casual. At the same time, traditional style can be elaborate, splendid, elegant and luxurious.
Transitional is defined by clean lines but not too edgy. Transitional is often a marriage between traditional and contemporary. Transitional lends itself to individual interpretation which in itself is a very individualistic style.
Contemporary is defined as fundamental, simplicity, clean lines and texture. Straight clean lines with the appropriate color choices are important in contemporary styled homes.
Considerations when selecting a Kichler Chandelier
The first consideration in selecting a Kichler Chandelier should be the size of the chandelier itself. Transitional chandeliers come in many different sizes, including width, height and number of lights on the chandelier itself. As a general rule, the chandelier should be about 30 inches off the table in height. If the room is smaller than 10 by 10, then a diameter should be no more than 17 to 20 inches. A 12 x 12 room, then a 26 or 27 inch diameter would look about right. A 14 by 14 room choose a 28 to 36 inch diameter transitional chandelier. Total wattage of the bulbs, depending on chandelier size, should be approximately 200-400.
Another consideration before selecting a Kichler Chandelier should be the chandelier height. The height of the chandelier is how tall it is from the bottom of the fixture to the top of the fixture. The height should not include the chain. For smaller ceiling rooms, (8-9 feet), then a single tier chandelier is sufficient. For ceiling heights greater than 9 feet but less than 12 feet, then consider a 2 tier chandelier. Great than 12 feet, a 3 tier chandelier should be used, provided your room is larger than 14 by 14.
