The way a chandelier lights up the room is a magnificent sight. The history of chandeliers is as varied as the styles and material that a chandelier is made out of. From the first time that someone realized how brilliantly lit a domicile was if you had multiple candles burning above peoples heads or their natural line of sight. Chandeliers jumped from mere light fixtures high above peoples head, to a craftsmans work of art. During the early 19th century, chandeliers were made to look, shine, and display their light in a specific well crafted way.
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.
The most important element to consider is the size. If not sized correctly, a chandelier will not be able to provide lighting as desired and may well not fit into its designated spot. So heres what you need to know about sizing a chandelier. When choosing a chandelier for a particular room, you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance, if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long, you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30.
