Chandeliers in Kitchens

By August 4, 2010 2 Comments

I’m loving the look of chandeliers in kitchens.  Not in the traditional way where the kitchen is so ornate and over-the-top that you expect to see an elaborate light fixture…

like this:

But in the untraditional unexpected way where a chandelier adds just a touch of elegance or personality or just plain fun, like the photos below:

    How funny, we were just discussing this in my kitchen design class and several students brought up the good point that they would likely get very greasy and be terrible to keep sparkly if you actually cooked in your kitchen. But I do love the look.

    They are definitely not a low-maintenance option, but I'd think as long as they're mounted far enough away from the cooktop, and there's adequate ventilation, they probably wouldn't get much dirtier than they would elsewhere in the home.
