How to Size Your Chandelier

How to Size Your Chandelier

The sparkle and dazzle of a well-placed chandelier defines and enhances the mood of any room. A chandelier that is too large can easily overpower a room and its inhabitants; one that is too small becomes insignificant and decreases the perceived value of the entire space. By following a few interior design guidelines for choosing the correct size, you will maximize the impact of the fixture. Room size affects chandelier size, but the type of space also affects the size.

Discover Your Personal Lighting Style

Tired of haphazard internet shopping? Just Lights invites you to “See It. Touch It. And Take It Home”. No more guessing, broken items, or return shipping charges. At Just Lights you have the luxury of a trained lighting professional to help you make the correct choice. There’s also a huge selection of lighting fixtures in a multitude of finishes and important items that you might not think about such as bulbs, dimmers, and other accessories.

So while most of us shop the internet because of the convenience, it’s actually much more useful to come into a full-service lighting showroom. It’s quite difficult to make critical decisions about color and scale – and next to impossible to judge light levels without actually seeing the quality of the illumination. Ceiling height, room size, even paint color can have an effect on the final purchase decision.

There’s a tremendous comfort in knowing that Just Lights guarantees your satisfaction. We provide expertise on installation and you can always call us for questions, concerns, and installation advice. We want you to achieve great lighting results so you will come back to us again and again.

Finally, Internet Minimum Allowable Price (IMAP) policies have leveled the playing field on price between Just Lights and internet retailers. In fact, you may find that non-advertised pricing in our showroom is lower than what you will find online.

Next time you are in the area, stop in and see for yourself.

A Good Time for a Ceiling Fan

A Good Time for a Ceiling Fan

Minimalist Fan from Monte Carlo

It’s a hot, sticky day and you emerge at home from your nicely air-conditioned car. The A/C at home has been on low efficiency – or turned off entirely – while you were at work. It will take a while to move the temperature down to a tolerable level, so in the meantime, you seek out the coolest room in your home. Wouldn’t this be a good time for a ceiling fan?

Ceiling fans not only provide that delightful breeze – drying your skin and cooling it at the same time – but they can also save you money. By keeping air circulating around your home, you move the cold air around and the air movement actually helps human bodies stay cooler. In winter, this effect is called the “wind chill,” and the same theory is at work during the summer – but it’s a lot more pleasant. Because of wind chill, homeowners can lower their energy costs by setting a higher A/C temperature – without loss of comfort.

Minka Aire Light Wave

Minka Aire Light Wave Fan

Today’s ceiling fans are more efficient than ever, and come in nearly unlimited choices of finish, width, blade count and light. Traditionalists can choose from hundreds of styles in Panama-style fans or cottage-inspired wooden finishes. Find these styles from Casablanca (Panama, Heritage), Matthews (Eliza, Irene), Minka Aire (Classica, Delano) and Monte Carlo (Penninsula, Homebuilder II).

But most ceiling fan manufacturers now offer a stunning selection of contemporary styles – ranging from nearly unrecognizable-as-fans designs to broadly sweeping designs with anywhere from one to eight blades. Contemporary finishes are often metals: brushed nickel, stainless steel, silver and even matte black. Check out the Light Wave from Minka Aire, featuring a sculptural 3-blade design with integrated LED light.

There are huggers for lower-ceiling rooms or finished basements and oversized fans (60″, 70″ or even 84″) for high foyers and maximum air circulation.

Keep your porch, patio or deck cool this summer with a wet- or damp-rated outdoor fan – also available in a broad selection of metal, resin or acrylic blades to stand up to wilting humidity.

Before deciding on a fan, be sure to talk to one of our ceiling fan experts. We can help you choose the right fan for indoors or out and help you sort through the often-confusing number of options including blade pitch, size, downrod length, light kit and speed.
