Quick Guide to Choosing the Right Chandelier

Modern crystal chandelierTips to Choosing the Right Chandelier:

    1. Complement your Colors: Feature a flashy chandelier in a room with vibrant colors. For a room with muted colors, consider a more conservative chandelier like our 5 Light French Brass Chandelier. The brass finish complements a darker paint job, giving your room an antique, classical feel.
    2. Remember: Style for Style: If the room has a modern style, a simple design would be a good choice. For a classic room, choose a more ornate and decorated chandelier like our 12 Light Victorian Crystal Chandelier. Its intricately designed gold plating recalls the Victorian origins of the fixture.
    3. Channel your Personality:  If you have a calm disposition, pick a chandelier that features muted colors and a conservative design. For you extroverts, our 6 Light Maria Theresa Crystal Chandelier will suit your needs. With chrome plating and clear crystals, this chandelier channels your outgoing personality.
    4. Consider the Atmospherics: Lighting is an important factor. Understated lighting gives your room a romantic feel, while bright lighting lends a celebratory air. If you can’t decide–remember that you can change the mood in an instant with the installation of a dimmer switch!

Kingdom Lighting offers a variety of crystal chandeliers to complement a room’s color, style or personality.

3 Chandeliers for the Nature-Lover

A crystal chandelier for nature loversFew decorations embody refinement and modernity like the crystal chandelier. The leaf motif acts as a chandelier’s natural counterpart: a representation of nature and the wild.

Three Pieces from the Crystal Leaf Collection:

  • Purple & Green Flush Mount: The purple and green crystals create a floral design around the gold-plated finish, which gives off a natural elegance. With a diameter of 25 inches, this piece nicely complements a mid-sized living room. It breaks up a conservatively styled room with a splash of color.
  • Clear & Amber Flush Mount: The icy crystals surrounded by amber crystals resemble autumn leaves scattered around white snow. This natural contrast calls to mind the transition from fall to winter. This fixture has a diameter of 26 inches, and works well in a mid-sized room. Veering towards an exotic and natural design, this piece adds excitement to any room.
  • Pink & Amber Flush Mount: This piece is darker than the previous two chandeliers because it doesn’t have any clear crystals. If you are looking to add some flair to a room with muted colors, this flush-mounted light is an excellent choice–contrasting well with a darker wood, like walnut or kingwood.

Interior Decorating Ideas Inspired By Sia

crystal chandeliers and pop star sia “I’m gonna swing from the the chandelier,” sings Australian popstar Sia in her hit single “Chandelier.”  It is an understatement to say this song has created quite a buzz.  First, young dancer Maddie Ziegler’s routine in the “Chandelier” music video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography.  And if that wasn’t enough, Girls star and creator Lena Dunham performed her own interpretation of the dance on Late Night with Seth Meyers a couple months ago. Here are three crystal chandeliers that would look great in a living room or dining room, but I’m pretty certain you wouldn’t want anyone swinging from them, even if it was Sia herself. Three Chandeliers Inspired By Sia:

  1. 4 Light Maria Theresa Modern Crystal Chandeliers:  Decorated with polished crystal, Maria Theresa chandeliers were used to light up ballrooms and palaces in Europe.  This particular Maria Theresa chandelier is a bit too small to light up a ballroom, but it is perfect for giving your small dining room or a cozy living room a luxurious feel.
  2. 8 Light Antique Brass and Crystal Chandelier: The antique brass finish is great if you are trying to give your house a more vintage look.  Its dimensions are slightly larger than the previous chandelier, so perhaps use this beautiful decoration to compliment an entryway or a larger living room.
  3. 6 Light Flush Mount Crystal Chandeliers Crown Style: With a more modern vibe than the brass chandelier, this chandelier’s crystals are tested in various ways to ensure the highest possible quality.  Part of the fantastic “crown collection,” use this beautiful piece to lighten up your dining room and feel like a king while you are eating your favorite cereal.

We hope that our chandeliers can help give a sense of style and class to any room you choose, whether it be a cozy living room or a grand entryway.

Phantom Of The Opera Gets A Chandelier Upgrade

new modern crystal chandelier for the phantomThe long acclaimed Broadway musical, Phantom of The Opera, is touring nationally again — this time with a new set design and an upgraded modern crystal chandelier. The musical, and its new design and chandelier, can be seen at the Durham Performing Arts Center from now until October 19th. Heather Chockley, one of the show’s four stage managers, gives us some insight into the new set design and chandelier. Read on to learn more.

In terms of set design, the new look will offer a realistic theatrical backstage that highlights the Phantom’s path to his lair and fly floor. The new look is deigned to give audiences more bang for their buck by allowing them to feel like they are really part of the action. The new set design weighs ten tons in total, after it is assembled on stage, and travels from city to city on twenty semi-trucks.

The new chandelier is special because it is truly one of a kind. There is no backup. No stunt double. One chandelier, multiple shows. The chandelier itself weighs more than a ton and has over 6,000 beads. While there is no replacement chandelier, there a replacement strands of beads that are available throughout each show in case of damage or an unexpected outage. The beads are made of polycarbonate, which is a hard dense crystalline-like plastic. The structure is made of plastic, metal and fiberglass. The chandelier is held in place by cables running up to a support and weighed motors to prevent breakage. The chandelier requires an entire team of production assistants!

While our crystal chandeliers aren’t nearly as intense, they are certainly as stunning. Check out the Phantom for inspiration and then head to our website to find the perfect chandelier for your home.

The easiest way to upgrade your bathroom’s look without spending a fortune is to focus on small changes that will make a huge difference. Making small, yet dramatic, changes to your bathroom’s lighting can change the way the entire room looks. While it might not strike you as immediately obvious, a crystal chandelier might be exactly the upgrade your bathroom is in need of. Read on for more bathroom lighting tips.

Bathroom Lighting Ideas: 

  1. Embrace The Power of The Dimmer Switch: Nearly every modern crystal chandelier can be wired to work with a dimmer switch. The ability to choose the level of lighting for your bathroom offers a host of decorating possibilities. By keeping lights low, you can bathe your bathroom in a soft glow that’s guaranteed to make even the most outdated bathrooms seem grand. For those with sparkling new fixtures, flooding the room with light effectively adds a level of drama to your bathroom and showcases your hard work.
  2. Choose A Focal Point: Use your chandelier to create a focal point to your bathroom. By installing an elegant chandelier in your favorite part of the room, you are effectively drawing eyes to that portion of the room (and away from other areas you might not be as fond of). Use your lighting fixture to showcase what you love and draw attention away from what you don’t.
  3. Experiment With Bulb Color: Today’s light bulbs come in a range of colors. No longer are you stuck with the traditional white light options. Browse your local lighting store for colored bulb options and experiment with different options. With a little trial and error, you’re sure to find the hue that best showcases your bathroom.

Tuscan Interior Design and Lighting

Tuscan inspired chandeliers Tuscan-style decorating offers up drama, elegance and personality. Drawing inspiration from old-world Europe, Tuscan inspired designs inject charm, warmth and a unique sense of style into your home. Mixing old world elegance with today’s modern homes takes some know how and experience. Before shopping for crystal chandeliers, do some research into pulling off the perfectly Tuscan inspired style. Read on for a starter course in Tuscan design. Then browse around for other ideas before visiting our site to browse our selection of modern crystal chandeliers with a Tuscan touch.

Tips For Incorporating Tuscan Style Into Your Decor: 

  1. Know Your Colors: Tuscan style decor relies heavily on earth tones. Bright colors, crazy patterns and bold yellow or orange accents will detract from the overall feel of Tuscany. Think of what you would find in a cozy cabin in the middle of the European Countryside. If it seems too outlandish for that setting, you are best leaving it alone.
  2. Accents Make All The Difference: Jewelry completes any wardrobe. Home accents complete any decorating scheme. Wrought-iron accessories like candles, sconces and pewter light fixtures are perfect for lining hallways for a truly European feel.
  3. Look Where Your Feet Are: When it comes to flooring, terra cotta tiles are best for a Tuscan feel. Stones with intricate mosaics work as well. Antique rugs will lend a sense of cozy warmth as long as they adhere to the Tuscan color scheme.

Now that you know the basics, shop Kingdom Lighting USA for the perfect lighting fixtures to compliment your newly European home.
