Chandeliers are also known as suspension or chain-hung fixtures. Like ceiling fixtures, chandeliers are also hung from the ceiling. However, they require more space in addition to adding more pizzazz compared to regular ceiling fixtures. They provide general lighting and have at least two arms with down-lights or up-lights. They are most often used with formal dining rooms or dining tables.
Typically, they project down from the ceiling and are usually the biggest lighting piece found in the kitchen. These fixtures can also be hung over a breakfast nook or a kitchen table. There are two types of ceiling fixture; flush-mount ceiling fixture with the glass or diffuser touching the ceiling and semi-flush ceiling fixtures where the bowl projecting from the ceiling such that it hangs a couple of inches away, with indirect light reflecting from the ceiling (think of it like an upside down umbrella).
Flush−mount kitchen ceiling light fixture uses only around two bulbs but they are capped with translucent covers. But since they are covered, the main drawback of this lighting fixture is that they can’t give bright lamination inside your kitchen. This type of lighting is perfect if you want to have a good ambiance in your kitchen. Now that you know these things about different types of kitchen ceiling light fixture, you will be able to choose the right one for your needs. This will help you achieve your preferred kitchen design and also increase its value especially if you want to deviate from the conventional looks of your home. Ceiling fixtures are designed in a way to provide general lighting to the entire kitchen.
Dining Table: The pendant should be suspended about 30 to 36 inches above the table. This will allow for ample illumination while reducing glare at the same time. Bar or Raised Counter:: The bottom of your pendant light should float about 30 inches above the counter surface. For desks, bring the light in closer to the work surface by allowing your pendant lamp to float about 16 inches from the surface. However, this can change depending on the height of you and your family. Foyer: Illuminate your space without encroaching on head space by suspending your hanging lamp about seven feet from the floor.
