These fixtures have withstood the test of time. Since then, many other styles have evolved and are equally as impressive. Most modern fixture designs manage to offer both a nod to the past while fitting seamlessly into the decors and designs of presentday. One of my favorite topics is the chandelier because of its history as a method of lighting that was used before the sixteenth century.

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.

If they do not consider a hanging lamp or two, the modern decorator may feel as if they moved into an art gallery where all the lighting is bright but far away. A chandelier in the entryway and another over the dining area can bring rich lighting down to peoplelevel and can highlight modern style. Chrome starburst designs and cylindrical designs are both sleek, modern chandelier options.

You can adjust the lighting like ingredients in your favorite dish. Subdued light creates a restful environment; different colors set different moods. You can have fun selecting the types of lighting that you feel comfortable with. If you think you need to encourage certain aspects of your individuality, your personality, see if you can decide how to coordinate that. You can use a chandelier in almost any room, since there are countless styles from which to choose from.

There is one example I have seen on Thanksgiving where the host positioned the light to highlight the turkey, the ham, the delectable side dishes, and the deserts. The host positioned the other lights to shine on the lighter color walls to diffuse the light coming into the room. Another modern style has a pane of glass in front of each of the bulbs. This allows the light coming off of the bulbs to be more gentle and soft.

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.

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.

If the room is highly articulated then the use of one central chandelier is not suitable. Such a room should be fitted with wall lamps or another smaller chandelier. For halls with low ceilings it is convenient to use flush mounts. The colour of the walls, furniture, metal accessories, carpets and style in which the room has been decorated, as well as the tastes of the user, influence the choice of chandeliers.

Chandeliers generally have metal branches, which fit the light holders. The metal branches are highly decorated with art work and stylish designs. The traditional chandeliers have flower, leaf and creeper designs on the metal branches. But, modern chandeliers have classy and trendy art work. The classification of chandeliers is based on the materials that are used to make them. Most of the chandeliers are white in colour because the lighting in chandeliers is by refraction of light through the crystals and glasses used, but, there are also black chandeliers, which are pretty popular because they portray an exotic look. The various types of chandeliers have been discussed below.

While a traditional crystal chandelier can look at home in almost any setting, if you want to go in for an ornate wrought iron chandelier, or perhaps a contemporary one, it is important to first determine that such a design will match your home décor. Remember, while choosing a chandelier style, you want to go in for one that matches your décor and not contrasts with it. In addition to the above, ease of cleaning, number of bulbs (depending on how much lighting you require), and your budget are the other factors to consider when choosing a chandelier.
