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.

They are the most traditional form and manufacturers of these hardly use crystals. This is because a layman prefers cheap and modern chandeliers over the more extravagant ones.

The Netherlands also have porcelain factories that manufacture ceramic ones.

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.

However, this would depend on the kind of chandelier you buy. Modern chandeliers can even come with some very modern styles, but the antique style is still best at adding opulence and style to any home. Crystal chandeliers have an exceptional and wonderful ability to produce the feeling of elegance and warmth to wherever these pieces hang. And since the lighting of your residence is a fundamental component, it makes sense to use it as a way of creating, augmenting and embellishing the ambiance in whichever manner you decide.

The following guide should help you answer the question: Multiply the width of the room by the length (both in meters) and again by 15. The number you get is just informative and should equal the Watt power (W) the main lighting of the room should have. Light requirement is above all dependent on the type of the room (living room, hall, dining room) which is either set out by a regulation or required by a user.

The most popular place to hang a crystal chandelier is definitely the living room, followed by the bedroom, hall and dining room.

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.

Chandeliers have always been associated with power and wealth, and subsequently through the ages many monarchs have owned chandeliers both because of the immense glamour they bring to their surroundings, but also because they were seen as a symbol of high class status and demonstrated their wealth. Although a genuine chandelier was not to be created until the 12th century, during the 8th century hanging lamps became more decorative and artistic, a shadow of the extravagance and beauty that would one day be associated with chandeliers.

For example, if a sanitary standard says that the minimum light intensity recommended for a stay in a room is 200lx, there are always people who will require 500lx or more. What is more, the older a user is, the higher his light requirement is. Various demands on the intensity of light can me met in various ways. A chandelier with a higher number of bulbs whose light intensity we want to decrease can serve as an example. Such a decrease in the light intensity can be reached by: installing a double switch (the chandelier will be only partially lit), installing a dimmer (the light intensity of all lit bulbs will be gradually regulated), exchanging current bulbs for ones with a lower power.
