         All About Chandeliers

CHANDELIER / MINI CHANDELIER – A multi-arm, decorative, often ornate ceiling light fixture
that holds a number of bulbs

Merriam Webster defines chandeliers as a branched, often ornate, lighting fixture suspended
from a ceiling.
The correct chandelier or mini chandelier will transform a
room.  Chandeliers can create a gentle cascade of light
perfect for a quiet dinner party or shine brightly on a lively
family dinner.  And the right chandelier can be an
eye-catching focal point, even when it is not lit. From
modern and contemporary chandeliers, to traditional mini
chandeliers, and everything in between, ReNew Home
Center has something for everyone.

Chandeliers are frequently used in dining rooms and in
the foyer but with the new variety of sizes and styles,
chandeliers and mini chandeliers are showing up all over
the house. ReNew Home Center's extensive line of
mini-chandeliers offer the glamorous look of a chandelier
over your vanity or desk, in your breakfast nook, as a bed
side light. Anywhere you can imagine!
The word chandelier is from the old French
meaning “candle holder”.   Obviously a lot has
changed since then. While the basic form has
stayed the same, the advent of electricity has
allowed for more creativity in both design and
placement. Chandeliers are generally a great
source of general illumination. and with the use of
a dimmer switch can create just the mood and
atmosphere you are looking for.  Whether it be a
gentle cascade of light over a romantic dinner
party or a bright and lively family dinner. In fact, many chandeliers are also designed with a
down light so they also work great as task lighting for activities such as doing homework or
paying bills at the table.
Chandeliers are available in a wide variety of styles, from simple modern chandeliers to more
ornate traditional chandeliers.  Manufacturers such as Kichler has more unique styles
available such as Arts and Craft, Lodge and Country, Mediterranean and even Tiffany style
and Art Glass chandeliers. Today’s chandeliers have moved beyond the functional need of
simply providing illumination and have become a beautiful focal point day or night.
Historically, chandeliers have usually been found in the dining room.  New designs such as mini-
chandeliers (Chandelettes from Kichler) and forward thinking design trends have moved the
chandelier out of the dining room and into the rest of the house.  These days you can find
chandeliers and mini-chandeliers in the foyer, kitchens, bedrooms and even the vanity or
bathroom. Of course, today's large great rooms are often highlighted with a beautiful
chandelier.  Not content to stay indoors, Kichler also has numerous outdoor chandeliers
available as well.  These chandeliers are perfect for the new outdoor living spaces designers
are using to expand our homes.

Q – How do I determine the proper chandelier width for a foyer?
A –
This is pretty easy.  Just add together the length and width dimensions of the foyer area.  
What you get is the proper diameter for most any chandelier you’ll need there.

Example:  The area is 12 feet by 16 feet.  Added together this equals 28 feet.  Therefore, the
foyer chandelier’s diameter should be approximately 28” in width.

Q – What about the height of the chandelier?
A –
This depends on the height of your foyer ceiling.  Always keep in mind that the bottom of
the chandelier should be at least 7 feet from the floor.  That may mean you need a flushmount
(mounts directly against the ceiling), a semi-flush (also known as close-to-ceiling fixture, which
hangs a few inches below the ceiling) or, if you have a tall ceiling, you may need a 2-tier or 3-
tier chandelier.

If there is a window above the front doors, center the chandelier so it can be seen from
outside.  If the foyer is extra large, you may also want to include wall sconces in the foyer.  
Install them against the wall approximately 60” from the floor, 6 – 8 feet apart.

Q – How do I determine the proper size chandelier for over a dining room table?
A – Here, as in the foyer, the dimensions of the room dictate the width (diameter) of the
chandelier.  If that doesn’t appear to fit because of the size of your table, use ½ the table width
for the chandelier’s diameter.
The bottom of the chandelier should be no lower than 30 inches above the tabletop.

Q – When should I use a dimmer switch?
A –
Although dimmers can be used in every room, we put this question here, because the
dining room will be the location of many varying activities.  Intimate dinner party?  Dim the
lights.  Children working at the table on their homework?  Bring up the wattage!

Q – Will a chandelier be enough light?
A –
Here again, you should make sure the chandelier has enough wattage (Multiply the length
times the width of the room.  Then, multiply that number times 1.5.  That gives you the amount
of wattage you need to light the room properly for general illumination.

Example:  A room is 12 ft. x 16 ft. (12 x 16 = 192).  Then multiply 192 x 1.5 = 288 watts.  That
means an 8-light chandelier using 40-watt bulbs would give 320 watts, which is even more light
than needed.).

If you’re not comfortable with the amount of light, you can add sconces, portable lamps or
recessed lights to add more light and ambiance.

As an authorized distributor, retailer, and sales representative of many manufacturers we can
assist you with selecting the perfect chandelier to reflect your style, application, and budget.
