Much like rectangle chandeliers, round chandeliers made their mark with their iconic shape. Their numerous names stem from various periods that influenced their general motif. Orb chandeliers, also known as mid-century modern style globe chandeliers, stand out in nearly any space thanks to their rounded silhouettes, multiple glass shades and bulbs, and sleek base finishes. Other round chandeliers welcome the addition of industrial or minimalist style to their designs, as their rounded profiles soften the clean lines of their designated spaces and add a touch of cosiness. No matter what round chandelier you choose, there is a suitable spherical lighting fixture for any of your spaces.
How to Choose your Round Chandelier
As round chandeliers have a wider range of styles, it becomes confusing when choosing the right one for your space. Good thing is that we have listed various factors that might help you narrow down your option. Here are some of those variables:
Size: Your chosen round chandelier must not be too big or too small to become disproportionate with the space. If you have no idea on what size to choose, a standard estimate is to measure the room’s length and width in feet and add them together to get the overall diameter of your round chandelier. Make sure to swap the units from feet to inches to get your final result. For instance, if the room in which you will hang the chandelier is 12 feet wide and 25 feet long, then your desired chandelier has an estimated diameter of 37 inches. If you plan to make the round chandelier the focal point of the room, designers say that you have to add six to eight additional inches to your result.
Hanging Height: Make sure that you will suspend your chandelier at such a height that will not inconvenience any person passing by while also making sure that they can admire its beauty at specified angles. You don’t want to hang it too high for everyone to only see the chandelier’s bottom nor too near that they can’t appreciate its overall beauty. Furthermore, if you have an option, purchase motorized type installation equipment especially if you want to hang your chandelier over a high ceiling, as it will be easier to care for if you can efficiently pull it down and bring it up again once it is clean.
Colour: A round chandelier’s colour is one of the first variables that viewers see. It often defines the style of the lighting, which also makes the motif of the room stand out. A dark-coloured round chandelier may bring about a commanding appearance while a round chandelier with a warm colour palette invokes comfort and relaxation. Make sure to finalize what round chandelier colour best suits the room before buying it.
Material: Stainless steel round chandeliers blend into a room with an understated look. Crystal round chandeliers reflect light all over the room, inciting a bright and positive atmosphere tinged with a bit of delicateness. Beaded or rattan round chandeliers promote a sense of Bohemian or Coastal appeal. The mood of your space is highlighted depending on the material of your round chandelier.
Bulb Type: Round chandeliers are designed to fit only specific bulb types. However, not all bulb types are available locally so if you don't have your top pick yet, be sure to make your community research on your chosen bulb type for your round chandelier. If you already decided on your round chandelier but found that the bulb for its bulb base that is not available in your area, contact your contractor for help or simply order the correct bulb type online.
Location: Although round chandeliers are suitable for any space with their several designs, not all are applicable for outdoor use. If you plan to fix a round chandelier in your patio or gazebo, make sure that it is weather-resistant. Moreover, take note of the purpose of the area in which you want to place your round chandelier. For example, it’s best to avoid massive round chandeliers with dim lighting on kitchen islands and hallways, but large chandeliers are great statement pieces in entryways and by the staircase.
