How to choose the chandelier for the kitchen?
The ideal size for the kitchen chandelier depends on, guess what ?, the size of the kitchen! The piece must be proportional to the space, so small kitchens, like apartment ones, ask for small chandeliers and large kitchens ask for large chandeliers, do not try to do the opposite, you will regret the result. Is that always the rule? It doesn’t always depend on the style you want to create in the kitchen.
For example, the industrial style accommodates larger chandeliers that refer to factory sheds, even if the kitchen is small. But it is necessary to have common sense in this choice and, above all, to know very well what you want to create in order not to make mistakes, the tip here is to follow the pattern of your kitchen. When in doubt, follow the proportion rule.

The most common places for placing chandeliers for the kitchen are on the sink counter, bar or centered in the environment. The best location will also depend on the style of the kitchen and the proposed lighting available in it. It may be that your intention with the chandelier is simply to create a point of light directed towards the counter, or else the chandelier may be the central point of lighting in your kitchen. Have a lighting project on hand to define exactly what the chandelier will do and where it will be placed.
The chandelier must not be close to the ceiling, but it must also not be at a height that hinders people’s movement and movement. The ideal is to keep the chandelier at a distance above people, without generating excessive shadows or impairing the vision in the environment or that of any person. However, if you use it on the countertop or counter, it is possible to position them a little lower than recommended. The color and shape of the chandelier should be thought from the decorating style prevalent in the kitchen.
Light, neutral and sober colors combine with different styles, but especially with classic, modern and elegant decorations. The chandeliers with stronger and more vibrant colors charge the environment with energy and refer to a more informal, young and stripped decoration, perfect for more modern environments. Kitchen chandeliers can also take on different shapes, such as pendant, chandelier, elongated, spider or circular type. Choose the one that best matches your project.
