Chandeliers to illuminate the kitchen: how to design properly
The lighting in the kitchen with the chandeliers requires some considerations very important functionally. In designing this environment and consequently of his furniture is a good idea to take into account many variables, such as the location of the different working areas than openings to the outside of the House.
Based on this information, it is possible to provide artificial light points that take any deficiencies in natural lighting provided by Windows or French doors.
The solution generally more correct plan kitchen chandeliers or light spots generally, directed to specific work areas but also at places where they placed appliances. They still have an inside light when they are put into operation, as in the case of the kiln, or when opening the doors, like the fridge.
Down the era of soprapensili Corbels with Recessed spotlights that illuminated the head rather than the top on which you work, today we prefer most strategic points of light: under wall, underneath the hood to illuminate the cooking top and under the work top to illuminate the Interior of drawers and pan drawers when you open them.
With the advent of Led technology has become much more practical and functional handle this type of lighting, with the ability to fix lights everywhere.
It remains important, in any case, provide a background lighting of the kitchen also in more general terms, such as when you must enter into this environment and you want to now that is lit, or, more simply, when you must ensure good lighting on the table or the peninsula from lunch when the kitchen is habitable.
The chandeliers in the kitchen, the more correct choice, as long as you take into account some rules are simple and intuitive. In the gallery at toughestflashlights.com you will find some kitchen chandelier ideas from the latest collections of leading companies in the lighting industry.
We see specifically how to light a kitchen depending on how it is organized spatially and functionally.
Such as chandeliers choose to light up a kitchen with dining area
In the case of a kitchen that not including the table, once assured correct lighting of the many areas of work as described above, simply place a bright spot at the center of the ceiling so as to enable the background illumination of the environment.
You can choose either a ceiling light, if the environment is small, both a chandelier suspended, as long as it has a wire hanger rather short and the reflective outer body, which let the light even in a roundabout way, to avoid the formation of shaded areas.
As far as style, it goes without saying that even the fixtures to illuminate follow the one adopted for the rest of the furniture, with clear references to colors, materials, finishes and more generally to design this already in the House.
In the picture the model Phoebe of ARTEMIS, essential in form and functional performance, thanks to a minimum thickness that does not reduce the yield, indeed, exalts.
Chandeliers in a kitchen with dining table
The classic solution of kitchen separate from the rest of the living area is still adopted in various situations is both detached apartments.
In this case it is necessary to illuminate properly especially the area where I placed a table and chairs. Place of the suspended chandeliers that have as their point of reference the table top is the most correct choice of course, provided it does not go to the detriment of the rest of the lighting environment by creating shadows.
There is also to consider the shape, the type of the table and how it is placed in the room: square or round, oval or rectangular, fixed or extendable, at the Center, or leaning against the wall.
If the shape of the table is square or round, a single chandelier suspended or more luminaires are grouped together in a single conformation may suffice, will depend on the size of the table itself and then by the number of seats as calibrating the illuminating power of the appliance.
If the table is rectangular, oval, or extending, it is preferable to choose how long-shaped candelabra light fixtures with more bright spots, or a series of smaller chandeliers in one single unit placed lengthwise, in line with the table.
Kitchen chandeliers lit with an open space with a single table
In the case, very frequent in contemporary interior design, a kitchen made of an open space and with a single table for lunch or the peninsula instead of table to divide spaces, the chandelier will follow the same rules as the one on rectangular or extendable.
If the table does not have the long side much sharper in length compared to the other, then a chandelier suspended centered on it simply to illuminate this area. In particular, a suspension design focus attention as it will be the only point of light on the ceiling of the whole living.
A business model of impact could be Ameluna, Artemis, born from the partnership of Artemis and Mercedes-Benz. Ameluna has an asymmetrical design and is made of transparent materials to create high-impact emotional atmospheres.
In its simplicity, but only in appearance, this fixture conceals a heart of optoelectronics integrated into the transparent body. A Ribbon of aluminum supports Led joining in lower profile in order not to interrupt the sinuosity and purity of forms
The light is refracted partly thanks to direct and transparent body, illuminating in this way both the table both the rest of the environment. In addition, creating numerous chromatic effects through a spot RGBW LEDs.
Also the model Supergiù SxG by Luceplan offers the possibility to be used in two different ways thanks to movable reflector vertically, with a simple gesture. So, if you raise the reflector focuses light downwards, while, on the contrary, if the reflector is turned up the luminous flux spreads evenly upwards.
In the gallery review Ameluna images and Babylon, other model Artemis, and Supergiù SxG by Luceplan.
Chandeliers for a kitchen in open space with the rectangular or the peninsula
Other situation can create if in the living area open space there is an elongated rectangular table or a peninsula. In the latter case is very pronounced longitudinal trends in the conformation of the peninsula itself, all the more so when the seats are on one side only.
Lighting should be provided equally to all Diners, so it must be from a chandelier suspended with main body by design stretched and various light points, or from multiple fittings willing lengthwise.
In this case, being a single environment will benefit, albeit indirectly, of diffused light from other light points in the rest of the living area, so the chandelier on the peninsula will be focused on this area.
For style, even more you have to refer to the surrounding environment for materials and finishes, as well as for the colors.
The Aurora model, always of ARTEMIS, available in various colours of the outer body, could be the right solution for size and design, and place it in series of two or three lengthwise, suitable for both in modern and classically decorated, or vintage.
The pendant chandelier Aurora inspired Tiffany lamps because it creates special effects thanks to the passage of light through the stained glass in different shades.
The result is a combined lighting: direct and indirect, diffused, white and slightly colored.
Aurora uses the typical properties of handmade glass by combining them with high power Led technology. This emits a beam controlled by a spotlight in order to produce different lighting effects for both intensity and chromatic effect, depending on the point of opaline diffuser that is affected by the passage of luminous flux.
This gives you a direct ambient lighting in the environment that is comfortable and white in addition to warm and delicate colorful shades from the outer ring.
Also notable is the model of chandelier suspended Orsa, where the extreme simplicity of the constituent elements of the external body allows light to delineate the volume itself (cited above). Clearly inspired by minimalist, Orsa consists of a thin aluminum shaft that widens at the base by creating the space for LEDs, covered by a speaker so as to be invisible, so as to turn the lamp on a disk of light suspended (cited above).
If you like the minimalist style, then you’ll appreciate the model Compendium, by Luceplan, designed by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken. It is a sculptural model from slender body stretched, with the two ends in a cylindrical shape and the central part in extruded aluminium finned section where there are Led circuits.
The tabs allow you to shield the light sources with high efficiency. In fact, the name refers to the Compendium compendium or hood, used as a screen for the aim of reflex cameras.
New technological, multifunctional kitchen chandeliers
It is interesting to modern trend which sees lighting fixtures, as well as other articles, designed as functional elements. There are such models of hoods that double as chandeliers, as well as chandeliers that add to the primary function to reduce the noise.
It is the case of silence, by Luceplan, offering acoustic comfort in addition to bright. This is a high-performance illumination system in the field of sound-absorbing, you can customize aesthetically thanks to Kvadrat fabrics which help to coordinate even the chandelier to the rest of the environment.
Petal design, Odile Decq, also adds to the primary function to absorb the noise due to the peculiarities of exploit the same technology as regular panels.
