Choosing Chandeliers For Your Home

Chandeliers are one of the most iconic forms of lighting and offer numerous different styles to choose from. Chandeliers make an opulent addition to any room, adding elegance and class with every single shine of light that emanates from its crystals.

When purchasing your new chandelier, several factors should be taken into consideration. First and foremost is selecting a style that complements the decor of the room in which it will be placed.

First, choose a finish that complements the other fixtures in the room. A hammered brass finish could fit right in with rustic decor while more classic styles might benefit from using either brushed nickel or antiqued bronze fixtures.

Finally, when selecting your chandelier model it should meet the desired lighting levels in your space. For example, if it will hang above a dining table then its lighting must provide enough illumination without creating too much of a glare in the room.

Size should also be an important factor when selecting the ideal chandelier for your home. While they come in various forms and sizes, larger ones could create visual clutter and make your room seem unbalanced and overcrowded.

As a general guideline when selecting an ideal chandelier size, use this formula: specific area width + specific area length as a rule of thumb. So if your ceiling span is 10 feet wide and 10 feet high respectively, look for 20-24 inch chandeliers as this would provide optimal performance.
