Hinkley Chandeliers – Statement Lighting For Your Space

Back to Home
Chandeliers have been around since the medieval times. Although they were quite different in that time period, as they evolved and became more ornate, chandeliers became a symbol of elegance and luxury. Today, chandeliers come in different styles, sizes, and materials and can be used throughout the home – kitchen, dining room, foyer, bedroom or even the bathroom. Hinkley Lighting is one brand that crafts a variety of chandelier styles. Whether you are looking for a traditional crystal chandelier or one that is modern and chic, Hinkley Lighting has a line of chandeliers that balances the traditional and modern designs. A Hinkley chandelier is a statement piece and can make any space look spectacular!
 
Whether you are looking for a chandelier for your dining area or bedroom, here are a few things to consider when buying a chandelier for your space.
 

Tips for Buying a Chandelier

 
First and foremost, you need to buy the right size chandelier. Buying one that is too large for your space can overpower the décor of the room, be unsafe as people may bump into the fixture, or even be too bright for the given space. A chandelier that is too small may not provide the illumination you need in the space. So, it is important to buy one that is the right size for both functionality and to add interest to your space. For example, if you are buying a chandelier for the dining room, it should be installed in the center of the dining table and proportioned based on the dining room. Make sure that it is hung at a proper height as well.
 
If you are looking for a modern Hinkley chandelier, look for one with a satin nickel or chrome finish and clean lines. The more ornate the chandelier, chances are it is best suited for a more traditional look. Chandeliers that are transitional (i.e. have traditional and contemporary design aspects) tend to have a bronze finish and may be more ornate than a modern chandelier.
 
Chandeliers are decorative in nature and meant to be a focal point in a space. Although, if situated correctly (such as over a dining table), it can also provide enough illumination to categorize it as a task lighting. It is best to have additional lighting in the space where you are thinking of hanging a chandelier, since it generally is not meant to be the primary source of lighting. In a large room, you can add recessed lighting along with a single large or a group of small chandeliers.
 
Look for an energy-efficient chandelier that can be put on dimmers. Today, there are numerous options in energy-efficient bulbs and one of them is LED. Most LED chandeliers are contemporary in design and since LEDs are small, it gives the designer the ability to experiment with the shape and size of the chandelier. Before buying an LED chandelier, check to see that it is compatible with a dimmer. With a dimmer you can control the amount of light in the area and can set the ambience of the room.
 
Chandeliers have come a long way from the heavy, glass, ornate structures that were a status symbol. Homeowners today use chandeliers as a decorative focal point and are experimenting with their use in kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. From modern and chic to transitional or traditional chandeliers, Hinkley Lighting has a style that can meet your décor needs.
