Create a Well-Designed Space with Modern LED Chandeliers
Ever since the invention of the LED, modern lighting designers have moved beyond conventional and traditional silhouettes and instead are creating bold, creative designs that were not previously possible due to the limitation of the light bulb. There is no greater example of these captivating designs than in modern LED chandeliers.
One of the oldest styles of light fixtures, chandeliers were originally designed with multiple arms to hold candles arranged in either a single tier or multiple tiers. However, due to the new lighting technology, LED chandeliers are now available in a range of styles from incredibly minimal, linear silhouettes like the Sky Bang Chandelier from Stickbulb to statement-making, sculptural designs like the Starburst LED Chandelier from Blackjack Lighting. Because of these new designs, a LED chandelier also continues to be the most lavish of all light fixtures making it the perfect focal point of any room.
The Benefits of LED Chandeliers
When compared to other light sources, LEDs not only allow for greater design flexibility, but they are also better for the environment and require far less maintenance. A LED chandelier will use up to 90% less energy than an incandescent light fixture while providing the same amount of light. This drastic reduction in energy used also helps to keep LED chandelier lights from producing excessive heat so the fixture, as well as the surrounding environment, remains cool and comfortable. In addition to using far less energy to operate, LEDs also last up to 50,000 hours or 20 years of use thus drastically reducing the need and cost for upkeep or bulb replacement.
How to Choose a LED Chandelier
When deciding upon the perfect modern LED chandelier to add to your room, there are several things to consider. Do you want crisp, white light or warm, yellowish light? How big is your space? Do you want a decorative light that enhances the decor of the room or a bold fixture that makes a striking, compelling statement?
Whether a LED chandelier casts warm or cool light is dependent upon the color temperature associated with the light source. The higher the color temperature, also known as Kelvins, the cooler the light is, whereas the lower the number of Kelvins the warmer the light. Deciding between warm or cool light for your LED pendant chandelier is up to personal preference, however, cool, white light in a kitchen or bathroom will help keep the space feeling bright and clean, whereas warm, yellowish light is perfect for creating a calm, relaxing environment in a bedroom or dining room.
The next thing to consider when picking a chandelier is the size of the room. The size of a LED chandelier should be appropriate for the size of the room to keep a space from feeling cluttered due to an overly large fixture or inadequately lit because the light is too small. When selecting a chandelier for a room such as a dining room, it is best to select a LED chandelier with a diameter of inches that equals the sum of the room length plus the room width in feet. In addition to considering the size of the room, it is important to think about how tall the ceilings are. In a grand foyer with high ceilings, a large LED chandelier with multiple tiers will provide the needed light while also making the desired statement.
The final thing to decide upon when selecting LED chandelier lighting is what kind of statement the fixture will make. A decorative, ornate light will wow guests and be the center of attention. Or a modern LED crystal chandelier will add a subtle romantic touch to a dining room or bedroom. Chandeliers also make fun yet unexpected additions to outdoor dining areas. On a backyard patio or gazebo, an outdoor LED chandelier will bring the familiarities of the indoors outside while elevating any outdoor gathering.
