To find the style that suits you, shop around. 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. Review your pictures while keeping the size and the brightness of the chandelier in mind. You want a chandelier that will provide adequate lighting for its location, but will not blind your guests.
Chandeliers, generally, come with either uplight or downlight bulbs the former meaning that the light faces up (and reflects against the ceiling) and the latter meaning the light faces down (creating focus or a very soft light in the immediate area.) Both would depend on the rooms needs. Downlights can be very effective in a dining room, to create a soft light just around the table, but this would depend on the size of the dining room. Chandeliers can complement the home very nicely, even though they have a very antique look.
The mixing of traditional and modern is a wonderful décor style, and a chandelier creates a charm to the lighting of your home that few modern lights can do. Chandeliers are even found in some very classy offices. The word chandelier originates from the French word chandelle which means candle. Its first appearance was in the 14th century where wood and candles were used. Galileo Galilea discovered the law of pendulum with a chandelier, by noticing that the swing of the chandelier took the same amount of time, every time, even if it was made shorter.
Antler chandeliers allow you to bring the hunting lodge home with you. A bentbranch chandelier would go well if you have even one bentbranch chair. Wood beam chandeliers with metal brackets may make you think of medieval castles, but current wood styles offer tailored designs as well as roughhewn designs. Tiffany Chandeliers, this style encompasses how many people currently decorate. And there are a bevy of chandelier designs that can fit in an tiffanyinspired décor. From chandeliers that use colored glass to freeform design, hanging lighting options abound.
A crystal chandelier can be placed anywhere. The most popular place to hang a crystal chandelier is definitely the living room, followed by the bedroom, hall and dining room. We have also encountered a crystal chandelier in a bathroom, however, it was a huge room with a perfect system of ventilation to take away humidity, which can influence the lifetime and functionality of the chandelier as well as the health of the user. Our chandeliers are shipped with IP code 20 (effective against insertion of fingers or similar objects but not insulated against any harmful ingress of water).
