The lighting of a space, especially when it comes to public places such as restaurants, acquires a fundamental role not only for the propagation of light but also for the design and appearance of the location. In fact, lighting helps to create a certain atmosphere which, depending on the surrounding environment, can be romantic, soft, chic or lively. Before choosing the chandelier, it is therefore necessary to understand what kind of atmosphere you intend to recreate in the room for a homogeneous and aesthetically pleasing final result.
The light in restaurants should never be too strong, but rather soft and warm to start conversation and stimulate the appetite with discretion. Brightness is one of the main features of a restaurant’s chandeliers and must be calibrated according to the type of room and the target of customers. Restaurants and bars usually require 4000k natural light. In pubs and nightclubs, on the other hand, warmer lighting ranging between 2700k and 3500k is recommended to create more intimate and relaxing environments.
The style depends on the owner’s preferences, but above all on the look of the restaurant itself. In a classic location where luxury and pomp reign, it is preferable to choose glass chandeliers with an imposing style and capable of dominating the entire room. In an ethnic or rustic restaurant you can aim for a chandelier with floral references and a more austere style. Alternatively, there are vintage chandeliers that give a retro and suggestive touch to non-conformist style locals.
The range of materials to choose from is very wide, however glass is an evergreen choice that can adapt to any style. Murano glass is one of the finest materials offered by Made in Italy craftsmanship, synonymous with elegance and refinement all over the world. Murano chandeliers are available in numerous versions that marry from time to time with classic, traditional, modern, vintage and contemporary styles, giving a touch of class and elegance.
The Murano glass factory is the custodian of a very long tradition that has its roots even in 420 AD. In the Middle Ages, art and craftsmanship were particularly valued and Murano glassmakers were considered real artists. The Murano masters started from the idea that glass was a malleable material, therefore suitable for being modeled and blown to its incandescent state without losing its chromatic characteristics even in the finished product. This concept has remained alive up to the present day, which is why Murano glass represents true excellence and a heritage of made in Italy craftsmanship.
The Murano chandeliers are the result of a patient and surgical precision work of the glass masters who continue to produce their small masterpieces almost exclusively with the help of their hands alone. To guarantee unique and original pieces, it can take up to 15 days to make and deliver a Murano chandelier, an expectation that is more than justified by the certainty of having an absolutely inimitable product of its kind.
Quality has its price and it is also right to distinguish a high value product from a low value one. It must in fact be considered that the chandeliers are made with excellent quality materials and with a delicate work by the expert hands of the glass masters. The prices are therefore perfectly matched to the time taken and the materials used. Of course, everyone can spend according to their needs: there are the very high-value models that cost over 5,000 euros and more accessible models at a cost of 300 euros. Sometimes the pieces can only be made to order, a condition that naturally determines an increase in the price of the chandelier which is unique and inimitable.
Before choosing a chandelier, especially if you are dealing with large halls with a complex style, it is advisable to ask for a consulting. A professional in the sector will analyze the environment at 360 ° to give methodical advice and harmonize the lighting with indications on the light points to be applied to enhance the location. In combination with the chandeliers, it is also easier to choose the ceiling lights, suspensions and appliques to give a sense of stylistic continuity to the whole room with a touch of great class.
