If you`re looking for a chandelier lighting today you have many options from antique looking to contemporary pendant chandeliers. You can even find chandelier shades to change the look of your already existing chandelier. Many people prefer this type as the light is not as harsh as the typical chandelier that has exposed bulbs. If you have an already existing light fixture, installing a new chandelier can be as easy as turning off the power, removing the old fixture and connecting the color coded wire to your new fixture. If you don`t feel comfortable doing it, it`s an easy and quick job for an electrician. Take a look at what`s out there, there`s sure to be something that suits your style.
To help determine your style, take pictures of your rooms and pictures of your favorite pieces in that room. Now go to a lighting gallery or two with pictures in hand. Check out the lighting styles available and pick a few that seem to fit in with your pictures. Now take pictures of those chandeliers and other hanging lights and take them home.
Buying a crystal chandelier can be an exciting experience, as well as a valuable investment. Below are some important tips to enable the shopping process to be more coherent and much easier.
Select a lighting fixture that blends with the mood and style of the other furnishings in the room such as the wall sconces, furniture, wallpaper, and other accessories. If a large and ornate chandelier would stick out in the room, consider putting something more muted so that the chandelier can be seen for its beauty rather than its girth.
When choosing a chandelier for a particular room, you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance, if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long, you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus, the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However, you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low, you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear.
Black Chandeliers: These are by and large manufactured in China and Czech Republic. They are preferred by people because of the contrast they exhibit with the white lights. They are made of black crystals, glasses and wrought iron and go well with vintage style of settings and interior decorations.
