The kind of lighting that you need is also an important criterion to consider. Here are the various types of chandeliers used to bring about different kinds of lighting. If you wish to achieve ambient (general) lighting, you should go in for a big one, which has plenty of bulbs and open lights. This will ensure that the chandelier provides light for the entire room. If you want to place your chandelier over something specific so as to illuminate that object, or if you want it to provide you with accent lighting for specific areas, then you should choose one with spotlights and down lights.
It is now possible to buy a special detergent to clean crystal chandeliers. The detergent need only be sprayed on the chandelier and all dirt will disappear and will drain away onto a mat placed beneath the chandelier. The work, which would otherwise take hours, is finished in a few minutes. A chandelier can be an ideal option for lighting in your home. Not just for foyers and formal dining areas, but chandeliers can also be used to provide lighting in kitchens, bedrooms, as well as the childrens room. But before you go out and look for that perfect chandelier, here are some things that you need to consider.
Light requirement is a feature of a user which is hard to predict. For example, if a sanitary standard says that the minimum light intensity recommended for a stay in a room is 200lx, there are always people who will require 500lx or more. What is more, the older a user is, the higher his light requirement is. Various demands on the intensity of light can me met in various ways. A chandelier with a higher number of bulbs whose light intensity we want to decrease can serve as an example. Such a decrease in the light intensity can be reached by: installing a double switch (the chandelier will be only partially lit), installing a dimmer (the light intensity of all lit bulbs will be gradually regulated), exchanging current bulbs for ones with a lower power.
Between the 11th and the 15th century, the Flemish town of Dimant became famous for its chandelier brass works, and in the 16th century the Dutch brass ball chandelier became popular. Over the next couple of centuries, chandeliers became popular, particularly for the very wealthy and royals. The chandeliers changed in many ways, shapes and sizes as technology and fashion modernised and transformed. In the 17th century, the first chandeliers featuring rock crystals were manufactured. These chandeliers were the first of the more extravagant and decorative chandeliers.
One of the best ways to find the style and size chandelier that will best complement your décor, is to go online and look at whats available. Keep in mind that the chandelier usually draws the immediate attention of a visitor so it should fit the basic décor of your home. Proper sizing is critical. A chandelier that is too large for the space it occupies will overpower the room and may even lend a sense of claustrophobia to the visitor. On the other hand, a chandelier that is too small for the room just looks out of place regardless of its style.
