Decorative Lighting....Kitchens

I love decorative lighting. They are the differentiators in a sea of recessed. Decorative lighting could be chandeliers, pendants and wall sconces. As I have described in previous posts, kitchens have become larger and the De facto entertainment room of the house. As a consequence, more pendants seem to be popular. However, style is a matter of opinion.

Also, it should be noted that decorative lighting by itself cannot properly light a room. Sure it seems like a good idea to throw a 6 arm chandelier with 60 watt bulbs in the middle of a room, but the corners and task areas are poorly lit while you blind your seated guests.

Decorative is part of the lighting plan.

Rough measurement of a chandelier...18 inches less than the actual table and hang it 24-30 inches of the table itself. Use this as a general guide.
