Why is Lantern Light better?

Before we actually list the advantages of lantern lights one after another, we would like to first share the idea of creating lantern lights. After a day and night study, LNC HOME’s designers noticed that the current lighting fixtures couldn’t solve a typical problem of our clients who were looking for lighting pieces chicer than pendant lights but in a smaller size than large chandeliers.

 

Based on their practical needs, our designers realized that it was time to design a special light for our important customers, which naturally gave birth to Lantern Light, also called “Petite Chandelier” by our designers, in French, it means mini chandeliers in small size typically. They retain the advantages of pendant lights to provide a focused light spot, while reducing the size of complex chandeliers, allowing for a gorgeous small lantern light that perfectly fits the needs of various styles.

 

Compared to single bulb pendant lights, lantern lighting fixtures are normally composed of three or four bulbs to generate more brightness and set a comfortable ambient in your space. In this case, if you want both functionality and aesthetic, lantern light will be a better choice without any doubt.

 

Moreover, most of chandeliers have more than five bulbs, which occupies lots of space, and sometimes it may give people kinds of overwhelmed feelings. So, if you prefer the sophisticated design of chandeliers but can’t accept their big size, then why not consider grouping two small beautifully-designed lantern lights to leave more space in your room but also show up your unique aesthetic?

 

Where to make it shine?

 

- Foyer Lantern Lights

As we discussed before, to lighten a room with limited space, lantern lighting options should be better than traditional pendants and chandeliers. Hence, to choose a good light for your foyer or entryway, foyer lantern lights are naturally ideal candidates. Hanging an eye-catching lantern could be the best welcome for your guests. A farmhouse lantern light will state your passion for nature life, while a contemporary modern lantern light can easily set a chic tone for the whole style of your house.

 

As the centerpiece of your foyer, we will recommend you install the lantern light exactly in the middle of your ceiling. As for the height of lantern, it depends more on the height of your ceilings. For a particularly high and tall ceiling, you can buy longer chains to make the lantern light closer to your floor. If you have a normal ceiling, 6.5 to 7.5 feet above your floor is considered to be a perfect and scientific distance according to our interior design experts. However, for a low ceiling, you can cut the chains to put it higher and set it well above your head. Moreover, if your foyer is equipped with a spiral staircase, try to hang your lantern light as high as your second floor which is tested to present the best outlook.

 

- Kitchen Lantern Lights

Well, no matter whether you want to enlighten a large kitchen or just set sufficient illumination in a smaller kitchen, lantern lights can always function perfectly in either situation. If you’re already tired of ordinary kitchen pendants or kitchen chandeliers, then setting two or three elegant farmhouse lantern lights over your curated kitchen island can refresh your cooking space and make your love this unique and amazing design. Not only because the high-quality wood materials can show up your graceful taste, but also because these beauties can be your reliable and helpful friends while preparing delicious meals for your loved ones.

 

- Dining Room Lantern Lights

The rules for installing a lantern light above your dining table are the same as that of a dining chandelier. However, if you have a cute round table in your dining room, then you can’t miss a mini refined lantern light hanging over your dining space. Compared to dull pendant light, dedicatedly designed lantern light will add more active vibes and fun into your room. Therefore, it’s not a bad idea to make some small but significant changes to enhance an aesthetic look.

 

- Living Room Lantern Lights

It’s hard to think out an ideal space to hang a lantern light in your living room. But don’t worry, instead of setting lantern lighting fixtures as statement pieces, it would be better to use them to decorate some functional areas in your living room. Whether above a reading sofa or a fine tea table, it will be both aesthetic and practical.

 

- Bedroom Lantern Lights

There are a lot of lighting options for bedroom in any shop, however, there are few lighting fixtures that can perfectly interpret your style and state your personality. We can’t make sure that you will definitely find a perfect lantern light that fits your big bed, but we are confident that bedroom lantern lights are more creative and charming choices than other lighting fixtures.

 

Just like kitchen lantern lights, for a small bedroom, one single beautiful lantern light can work perfectly to release endless chicness and glamour in your personal zone. As for a big and large bedroom, remember to match your lantern lights with other lights in your bedroom to build a harmonious as well as fashionable look.
