Crystals in chandeliers were originally used to help reflect and spread the light. Crystal glass was found to be the best material for this purpose. Into the 19th century, roped pendants and hanging drops were added to chandelier designs. With the discovery and use of electricity, the antique chandelier has of course moved with the times, and now incorporates electric or gas lighting. Candlelit chandeliers are still available, however, and can add some wonderful unique elegance and personality in the lighting of your home.
You can also choose a chandelier with shades as this will help to maximize the light filtering down but reduce the glare at the same time. Thus, once you have decided on what type of lighting effect you wish to achieve, you can select a chandelier accordingly. Style of the chandelier: As it is most likely going to be the center of attention in any room, it is essential that you choose a chandelier that has a look and style which is in keeping with the rest of your décor. You do not want to draw attention to your chandelier for all the wrong reasons after all.
In cases where the ceiling is not high enough, it is possible to shorten the chain. The chain can be shortened up to the length of one link which is necessary for joining the hanger and the body of the chandelier together. Should such a substantial shortening be insufficient, a different type of chandelier should be purchased. If the chandelier has already been delivered and you need a longer chain, it has to be ordered in the required length along with the flex, which should be changed as well because its length is insufficient as well.
