Opulent And Sparkling Chandeliers Give a Rich, Luxurious Look to Your Home

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.

Gorgeous Ceramic Lamps for Great Decor

Lighting – natural and artificial – is a very important aspect of home décor. A room can have beautiful wall décor, elegant furniture, great flooring and top-class accessories and still not look complete and well decorated if there is no proper lighting provided. Each room needs lighting to suit the purpose it is used for and the activities we do there.

Living room is used by all the family for mostly relaxing in the day time and for entertaining guests and visitors. In small homes, media center, reading area, and work table may also be located here. So you need to consider lighting that will suit all these purposes and accordingly plan. Also the size of the room also needs to be taken into account.

Track and recessed lights are a must for living room and so also pedestal lamps are needed. Pendants are used for providing task and general light to make the room by and large well lit. A mixture of all these lights will light up the furniture, upholstery etc well and draw attention to the displayed artifacts and curios that may be displayed.

Table lamps and pedestal lamps are important addition for lighting your interiors and are as important as chandeliers to add beauty and allure to your room. Originally glass chandeliers and cluster pendants and lamps were most popular. Metal based lamps, brass chandeliers, wrought iron chandeliers and pendent lights also look very fashionable. Tiffany chandeliers add a nice touch as an accent accessory.

Here you can see images of some mini chandeliers – cluster lamps – and table lamps made of porcelain base. Two chandeliers are made of bronze/gold finish metal with porcelain bulb holders with colorful shades and a third one has gold finish metal frame and shades made of gleaming white china in cute jug-like shapes along with floral shapes also in china as added attraction.

Other lamps are table lamps that are used for general lighting in kitchen and dining room. Some are paired with candle stands for additional appeal. Some mantle piece decorations like porcelain birds add to the beauty of the arrangement. There is a complete set made of bone china – table lamp, pen holder and flower vase all matching each other very prettily.

These table lamps with porcelain/bone china base and acrylic or fabric shades are from Leporcellane. They have mostly metal base and have metal fittings for holding the bulb and shades. I am sure you also would like to have such lamps in your home!

Wonderful Looking Lamps for Making Your Home Look Radiant

Lighting is one of the most important features in your home décor. You should so arrange that there is a lamp every ten feet or so in that there will be enough ambient lighting generally and you will have a task light where it is most needed. Table lamps, wall lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers and pendant lamps all are good sources of light for your home.

If you are using a pedestal lamp positioned in one corner of the room, there may be some chances of shadows if the pedestal is not tall enough. A tall pedestal lamp with a transparent or translucent paper or a fabric lamp shade can give a good amount of lighting with a glow. Make sure that the pedestal lamps have solid base and properly and safely wired.

When you place a lamp on a coffee table or a side table, make sure that it is not positioned in between so that people sitting on either side are not able to view each other clearly. Also the height of the lamp should be correct. The shade must be at a level so that there is no glare hitting the eyes of people sitting in chairs next to it.

Along with a chandelier or a pendant lamp over the dining room, it will be a good idea to have a desk lamp on the sideboards or a couple of wall sconces on either side of dining table so you have enough light to see what are the dishes/drinks on the sideboard etc. You can have some of the lamps that resemble candles in the chandelier.

If you want to have a lamp in your bedroom, you should see to it that you have a power switch near the bed so you do not have to get up to switch off when you are sleepy. You can position a couple of reading lamps near the headboard – if the headboard does not have built-in lights. A dimmer switch can help reduce the light if you are used to watching TV while lying on the bed.

Here are some beautiful looking lamps from Melody Maison Co. You can see how beautiful wall sconce looks. There are other lamps with bird sculptures, and other designs. The pleated red gingham style shade looks really fabulous and so is the lamp with the linen shade. Don’t you think your bedroom will look nice with the lamp with a pewter base?
