A chandelier is a decorative and fancy ceiling mounted light fixture having a number of branches for holding bulbs and candle bulbs. Chandeliers can be elaborate and ostentatious that can transform the entire look of any room. Large chandeliers are often installed in the living room or over a formal dining table while the smaller ones look good in the bedroom, bathroom or the kitchen. Chandeliers not only provide lighting but they reflect your personal style too, whether you go for a modern, crystal or transitional chandelier.
Finding the Perfect Size of Chandelier for every Room
Every room requires a chandelier of a particular size so determining the size is the most important consideration before getting a chandelier for any room in your home. For high ceilings and entryways tall chandeliers will be perfect. The best way to find the perfect size of chandelier is add the length and width of the room and convert the total in inches. If the room size is 14’x16’ than the size of the chandelier should be thirty inches. For the dining room the size of the chandelier should be about twelve inches narrower than the dining table and about four feet distance from the walls. The chandelier should hang about seven feet from the floor or about 30-32 inches above the table top. Small chandeliers will be best for the kitchen or the bathrooms.
Types of Chandeliers
Crystal candle or crystal drop chandeliers are by far the most luxurious chandeliers which have never lost their popularity even in modern times. These flush mounted chandeliers often with multiple lights bring a sparkling style to any room. Crystals and glass orbs reflect light for a typical brilliance while the metal hardware offers durability. The modern raindrop chandelier looks really regal for doorways or stairways with high ceilings. For a room with Asian style furnishings a bronze finish chandelier designed like a vine with upturned or downturned cups provide a soft radiance to your home. Stunning designer chandeliers with leaves and flowers in pastel colors can give your room the look of a garden. Some draping beads and crystals just complete the look.
Unique Light Fixtures Chandeliers are thus decorative and functional while providing an unmatched illumination becoming the focal point of a any room. In fact the multi directional light they provide brightens all the corners of your home.
