Glass and crystals, combined with metal create the magic of chandeliers. A chandelier can transform an ordinary looking living room into an opulent and luxurious living room. It is an important decorative lighting accessory to any room. It can be the focus of the room-décor – sparkling and glitzy, adding allure and style. Imagine how pretty the sparkling crystal on the dining table will look reflecting the chandelier’s glitter and sparkle! You have to buy the correct size chandelier to suit the room where you plan to hang the chandelier. The thumb rule is that the diameter of the chandelier should be the sum of room length and breadth but in inches. A mini chandelier can get lost in a too big room or look too dominating in a small room. But it is better to go in for a bigger size as they look smaller when they are hanging from the ceiling. It should be at least 7-8 feet above ground level, if not higher.
There are many chandelier styles like antique, contemporary, crystal, country, rustic, lodge and Tiffany. They can have lights ranging from pendant shades, crystal shades, candlestick shades and more. The metal fittings can be either in powder-coated or brushed finish ranging from bronze, copper, and nickel, gold or silver. Crystals used in the chandeliers can be gem-cut, hand-cut or moulded. Smaller shades in various colours add to the beauty avoiding glare. A chandelier functions as an accent light – more of a decorative light. And chandeliers alone cannot light the entire room sufficiently. It gives a diffuse and soft kind of a light adding to the romance and grandeur. You need to provide supportive lights to augment the ambient light; provide other lights like wall sconces and recessed lighting to give enough ambient light so the room is not dingy.
Here are some beautiful looking chandeliers from Lighting Direct. Satin nickel finish and oil rubbed bronze finish are some of the finishes used for these chandeliers. Trimmings like octagon heads, arrows, tubes, French pendeloques, beads, grapes and ovals are used to embellish the chandeliers. Some are done with a gold finish and some with nickel finish. All are high-quality products and come with base bulbs, open hooks and chains. Check for quality when you are buying chandeliers. Any imperfections like bubbles, flakes, chips or scratches in the glass and crystals will be very visible when lit. But a perfectly manufactured chandelier is a piece of art that will bring beauty and ambience to your home.
