Ask most interior designers and you will find they all agree that the inclusion of a chandelier in a room, be it kitchen, dining area, or other rooms used for entertaining and gathering, instantly brings a sense of elegance and taste to an otherwise drably lit setting. There are multiple advantages to utilizing contemporary chandelier lighting as compared to normal floor and table lamps:
Perhaps the best two reasons you should consider installing modern luxury chandeliers in your own home are:
At Urban Ambiance, we have done our homework, providing you with a wide array of chandelier types and styles. This of course simplifies your task of finding the right chandelier to express and enhance your current living space.
For many of our valued clients, this is an exciting process which tends to get their creative juices flowing as they review the variety of ceiling lighting options from which they can choose. It is not uncommon for someone to stumble across a chandelier type and style that literally wows them and immediately generates artistic ideas and approaches not previously considered.
The greatest value to our customers is our own background experience with contemporary chandelier lighting and the myriad of results we have seen thanks to the creative diversity of our many clients. We can also help you to determine which chandeliers function best in given spaces, particularly keeping in mind the dimension of the area where it will be installed.
Once you know the basic parameters of the chandelier which can best serve your purposes, you can really start shopping.
First, let's take a look at the varied high-quality chandelier types from which you can choose.
Aren't all chandeliers alike? After all, they all hang from above, so how different can they be?
The fact that all chandeliers hang from the ceiling is perhaps the only thing similar between all the varied types of chandelier you should consider. Let's take a deeper dive to learn more about these various chandelier types...
Within these four basic chandelier types, you will find a plethora of styles and shapes, so finding the combination which best sparks the energy of your inner artist just got much easier.

By working with this massive combination of types, styles, and design features, your choices become virtually unlimited!
Perhaps you have a large living room area, a medium dining space, a long rectangular kitchen, and a small breakfast nook, all of which would look beautiful when illuminated by the right modern luxury chandelier. Clearly, these differently sized and shaped spaces require different contemporary chandelier lighting.
So is there a simple formula for determining what sized chandelier can fit into your different spaces? Yep, and it's super easy to calculate!
First, get the dimension of your room, by feet.
Next, add those two dimensions together.
Finally, convert the sum of those dimensions to inches. That total represents the diameter of the chandelier which would best work for the room.
Let's take those four living spaces mentioned above, and run our calculations for determining chandelier size, assuming these dimensions...
Finally, the living room and dining areas can accommodate most types of chandeliers, but the kitchen and nook should focus on rectangular-shaped ceiling lighting, due to their rectangular layouts.
The desired brightness of lighting usually varies based upon the space and the preferences of the homeowner. However, there are also other factors which will impact your final decision for the layout of lighting intensity and directional focus.
For instance, if your dining room area sports a huge panoramic window to the outside, you already have natural daylight filling your room. Even when the sun sets, the evening lights in summertime can still do a good job of illuminating indoor areas. Even in interior rooms with no outside windows, the colors of paint and flooring will affect the overall visibility of an area. Finally, some spaces work better as darker, meditative areas not requiring strong light, while other spots demand brighter environments; for readers, hobbyists, painters, and others working with details or smaller items, a strongly lit room is greatly appreciated.
All those factors and other should be considered when reviewing the various contemporary chandeliers available. Also, if you want more control over the direction of lighting, so you can spotlight different areas, shop for chandeliers offering the option to adjust lighting as you desire.
