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 (2628 inches). But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (3436 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear. Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus, after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling, and 34 inches for the chandelier hook, the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again, you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table, you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
Its good to outfit your home with some other antique items, so that it doesnt look entirely out of place. However, this would depend on the kind of chandelier you buy. Modern chandeliers can even come with some very modern styles, but the antique style is still best at adding opulence and style to any home. Crystal chandeliers have an exceptional and wonderful ability to produce the feeling of elegance and warmth to wherever these pieces hang. And since the lighting of your residence is a fundamental component, it makes sense to use it as a way of creating, augmenting and embellishing the ambiance in whichever manner you decide.
The earliest chandeliers were very basic, almost primitive devices that involved two pieces of wood connected together to form a cross. A spike was inserted at each end to hold the candles and a rope or chain was connected to the crosspiece and then suspended from the ceiling. As a former antique dealer, Ive found that nearly all of the earliest chandeliers were destroyed and very few authentic examples remain in existence today. The chandelier found its resurgence in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and was found in the great palaces of Europe and America.
The vintage and traditional type of chandeliers use candle lights or incandescent lights for illuminations and have yellowtinted illumination, while modern chandeliers have fluorescent or LED light bulbs and give bright white luminescence. Lighting chandeliers with candle lights is not practically possible on an everyday basis, hence, modern chandeliers have electric bulbs that are designed to look like candle lights. They have been in use since medieval times, i.e., since the sixteenth century, and are believed to have originated from European countries.
Crystal Chandeliers: The most expensive and luxurious chandeliers are made of crystals. They are the most traditional form and manufacturers of these hardly use crystals. This is because a layman prefers cheap and modern chandeliers over the more extravagant ones. Ceramic Chandeliers: The next most expensive are the ceramic chandeliers, which are made of porcelain. Ceramic chandeliers are mostly manufactured in China and exported all over the world. The Netherlands also have porcelain factories that manufacture ceramic ones.
