What to Consider when Buying a Chandelier

A chandelier is one of the most decorative items in your house. It is more than just illuminating your room, as it adds style and becomes part of the home décor. Just like any decorative piece, the right chandelier can make a big difference in the feel and look of a space. Whether you are building or renovating your home, you might as well consider your chandelier first and then design the rest of the room to match it. Here are some tips to guide you, while selecting a chandelier.

Size

A chandelier should be sized in proportion to the room as the height increases with the diameter. You want the chandelier to create a welcoming atmosphere. If it’s too big, it will overpower everything in the room instead of complimenting it. If it’s too small, it will definitely be unnoticed.

Location

The chandelier has evolved into one of the most commanding displays of personality in a room. Traditionally, it gained popularity at the dining table, foyer and entryway. Today, it can be placed in living rooms, bathrooms, closets and even kitchens. All you need is a ceiling height to accommodate it. The location will also affect the style of home lighting you choose. For the bedroom and dining room, use a dimmer switch to give you the feeling of candle-light.

Style

A chandelier is the first thing you see when you walk into your home. So whether you are designing your room to match a chandelier, or if you are matching a chandelier to an existing design, always make sure that the finishing and the styles match. Play around with different shapes and sizes. Nowadays there’s a wide variety of styles to choose from. Beaded chandeliers are best suited for those who want a nautical theme. They can be fancy and casual, depending on the type of material used. The chandeliers with shades are among the most common type of chandeliers. While glass shades allow in more light, fabric shades provide a more diffused light. They mainly consist of glass and fabric shades. They will provide an exciting look in your room.

Compliment the room

A chandelier should complement the overall theme of the room. If the room has a rustic design, choose one with twigs or faux antlers, while if it is a little girl’s room, the theme could be colourful crystals. A shabby chic room will do just right with a black and white themed chandelier, with antique glass shades. Always think of the chandelier as an ultimate accessory, a statement piece of jewelry in a space, adding that extra layer of excitement and sophistication.
