Remember to stick with the classic designs. Remember that a colored chandelier will become dated in another 5-10 years. Match the chandelier to the room and the mood you wish to feel rather than with the times.
Diffused Lighting: Many people like to have sober diffused lighting in their home. They do not like the glare of very bright lights. If you too desire such lighting, you should choose a chandelier with uplights. An uplight will throw light on the ceiling which then gets diffused and provides a very warm glow. You can also choose a chandelier with shades as this will help to maximize the light filtering down but reduce the glare at the same time.
Candle chandeliers made from metals such as brass, brushed nickel and wrought iron are elegant pieces that resonates the rich history of the past. Antique chandeliers made from metals used to hold candles instead of electric bulbs and have been in existence since the 1400`s, though they were reinvented in differing finishes throughout the centuries. Antique metal candle chandeliers are among the most expensive lighting fixtures today, and may cost up to $60,000 because of their rarity and origin, making them collectible items. If you want to save energy and you have the right budget, you can always opt for an antique metal candle chandelier.
Choosing a chandelier is made simple by the many different styles. Today, there are chandeliers and other hanging lamps designed to fit into almost any décor. Even men who dream in flannel and boots can find a variety of chandelier styles to fit their design scheme. Below are a few style choices:
Glass Chandeliers: The cheapest alternative for crystals is glass, hence, glass is used to make cheap chandeliers. Most of the modern ones have glass shades and domes. By and large, white or yellow coloured glasses are used to make glass ones. But, there are also multi-coloured ones where stained glasses are used.
Select a lighting fixture that blends with the mood and style of the other furnishings in the room such as the wall sconces, furniture, wallpaper, and other accessories. If a large and ornate chandelier would stick out in the room, consider putting something more muted so that the chandelier can be seen for its beauty rather than its girth.
