Modern Beauty Just A Step A Way
Modern Chandeliers are a great choice for any home décor. These chandeliers range from retro mid-century styles to simple, uncluttered designs. The hallmarks of many Modern Chandeliers are their clean lines and smooth surfaces. Frequently seen in hotels and other commercial settings because of their ability to blend with any décor, they make good choices for any home.
Finishes can be polished or brushed and come in a wide variety of colors like chrome, brass, and copper as well as antiqued finishes. Mounting fixtures come in all shapes and sizes for chandeliers, wall sconces, and desk and floor lamps. Modern light fixtures come with an array of shades to personalize your decorating. You can get Modern Chandeliers with drum shades, glass shades and diffusers and even ceiling fans can be installed with modern light kits. Most Modern Chandeliers will have regular bulbs and can also be installed with high efficiency LED bulbs.
There is almost no end to the uses for Modern Chandeliers and other fixtures in your home. However, if you are looking for an even more modern look without the retro feel, than you may want to visit our Contemporary Chandelier section for a large selection in many beautiful styles. If you are looking to install a large Modern Chandelier in your entryway or foyer, you may also want to get wall sconces or smaller flush mount chandeliers for your hallways to complete the look. Wall sconces should be installed at least 60 inches from the floor and 6-8 feet apart to properly illuminate dark, narrow hallways.
There are many Modern Chandeliers that are stunning choices for dining rooms. They may have multiple arms and lights or be very simple with only a few. They can have brushed chrome or brass finishes with soft diffusers for a pleasant illumination during dining. They can come in a variety of lighting options for up and/or down lighting as well as ambient, non-directional lighting.
Flush mount ceiling fixtures are in great use in many homes today. A typical ceiling fixture in a kitchen or hallway may not even show any of the mount, making only the diffuser visible. This style of Modern lighting fixture efficiently throws ambient lighting all around the room. For a kitchen, this is a good choice because ceilings are usually lower, and cleaning is more frequent. The smooth diffuser surface is much easier to clean than an ornate one.
Bathroom fixtures are another place you will see Modern Chandeliers and fixtures. Modern wall sconces can perfectly tie together a Modern Chandelier over a vanity area for a stunning designer look. Vanity lights can have bright clear bulbs for applying makeup and shaving, and then the accent light can have diffused light for lighting the corners of the room.
Modern Chandeliers can be up and down lighting as well as bi-directional. In fact, the possibilities are endless with this type of design. Modern Chandeliers blend well with any décor and color scheme and will surely be a beautiful addition to your home.
