Antique chandeliers are becoming increasingly popular in the home these days, especially with new décor styles that include old and new being mixed in wonderful ways. Higher ceilings and different styled homes have made the chandelier the ideal piece for any room, especially since they do not make the room feel cluttered. Traditionally, antique chandeliers would welcome your arrival at the foyer of a (very affluent) home or was found hanging low to captivate you in a dining room. These days, chandeliers are found in just about any setting from the upper class mansion to the normal suburban home, to the traditional 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.
Certain styles of chandelier have placed mirrors around or among the bulbs to increase the light going into the room. When you place mirrors on a chandelier, not only do you increase output, you also increase the ability to play with the lighting. With a small twist of a mirror the light is bounced to another part of the room or made to hit another mirror. With that thought in mind, you also have the ability to cut and etch the mirrors to create a large range of visual effects from rainbows, to circles, to a split beam that dances on the wall.
