Choosing the Style of Chandelier
You can place a chandelier in any room of your home for a touch of glamor. This includes the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or closet. Chandeliers now work in large and small rooms. One of the newest trends is mini chandeliers that are used alone or in groups.
The style of chandelier you choose depends of the style of your decor. Is your home traditional, contemporary, or eclectic? Are you trying to make a statement with your chandelier or do you just see it as a lighting fixture? You can choose from ornamental chandeliers or simply-designed chandeliers.
Chandeliers come in a variety of styles such as modern or traditional. You can have a crystal chandelier or one with a mix of elements. There are chandeliers with different metals, different types of glass, and different colors all in one chandelier. Anything is possible as long as it’s something you like and something that complements the rest of your decor. You need to treat any chandelier you buy as an accessory to a room just as a lamp and table are accessories.
The Right Size of Chandelier
It’s important to have a chandelier that is the right size for the area. If it’s too small, it looks awkward, and if if’s too large it overpowers the area. When deciding on the size of the chandelier you need to take into considered the height of the ceiling, the dimensions of the area, and what the chandelier will hang over such as the foyer or the dining room table. In most cases, the bottom of a chandelier should hang at least seven feet from the ground.
