Types of chandeliers

  • Pendant lamps
As the name implies, these lamps hanging from the ceiling. They are the most common type and its main exponent is the chandelier. I have three of these in my kitchen and they look nice. They are red and stand out a lot, since my kitchen has all white walls.
  • Ceiling
They're kind of trays that can be in different ways. Was located quite close to the ceiling making them seem close to it, and slightly protruding. They are ideal if you have a room with limited space such as my bedroom (which I share with my sister) measuring 3 × 2 meters.
  • Semiplafones
They are quite similar to the panels. Unlike these, the semiplafones protrude from the ceiling like pendant lamps but at a minimum.
  • Recessed lamps
In this type are the famous dichroic. Lamps that are embedded in the ceiling and is not a relief beyond. Serve to hallways or small areas that need lighting. In my house for example, there dichroic pointing to the walls with paintings or photographs.
  • Spotlights
Placing a base on the ceiling lights and lights are put. The cheapest (does the job) but less decorative.
  • Movable lamps
These lamps have a hinged base that is fully movable both height and direction.
