Give Your Home That Traditional Feel
Traditional Chandeliers tend to be smaller in scale and have fewer light arms and tiers than larger, statement chandeliers. However, don’t think that means you won’t have just as many choices! Traditional Chandeliers come in every color and finish and have a dizzying array of shade options to choose from. They are also just as spectacular as the larger chandeliers.
Depending on the area you need to light and the style of your interior décor, you will be able to find a Traditional Chandelier for every lighting need in your home. You can even find Traditional style light kits for ceiling fans to help you more efficiently circulate the air in your dining room or living room. These Traditional Style ceiling fans also come in flush or semi-flush mount styles and can even be installed on sloped ceilings with the use of an available adapter. Please visit our complete ceiling fan section for all available options.
You will probably find a use for a Traditional Chandelier over your dining table or breakfast nook, over a bar area or in a foyer or entryway. Even if you have lower ceilings, you can still make an impact with a flush or semi-flush mount fixture in this popular style. As long as you have the required amount of space you will be able to find Traditional Chandeliers in almost any height to suit your needs. You will need to have at least 30 inches over your dining table or other surface and at least 7 feet from the bottom of the chandelier fixture to the floor for proper clearance.
Also, for large area that need to be filled, you will want to have the chandelier fill up approximately one-third of the total width of the available space to properly light and balance the room. This formula works regardless of the style of Traditional Chandelier you choose. If you are lighting a dark, narrow hallway, use may want to choose a shorter Traditional Chandelier and add wall sconces at 6 foot intervals to properly light it as well.
For living rooms, the addition of a lighting fixture in a dark corner can completely transform the room and make it seem bigger. A Traditional floor lamp can sit unobtrusively next to a favorite chair to provide task lighting for a reading corner or general room light reflected off the ceiling. A well-placed pendant lamp can help illuminate a piece of art to make it stand out.
Traditional doesn’t have to mean predictable or boring. Because Traditional Chandeliers are so easy to blend in, they can be dressed up with shades of other styles such as Mission/Craftsman, Art Deco, or Vintage looks. They come in virtually every lighting direction to fit every need. Other Traditional lighting fixtures are also available to augment your choices with table and desk lamps, wall sconces and ceiling fans.
The addition of a Traditional Chandelier in your home is sure to enhance any room without overpowering it. Your choices here are limited only by your imagination.
