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.
Crystal Chandeliers: The most expensive and luxurious chandeliers are made of crystals. 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.
Black Chandeliers: These are by and large manufactured in China and Czech Republic. They are preferred by people because of the contrast they exhibit with the white lights. They are made of black crystals, glasses and wrought iron and go well with vintage style of settings and interior decorations.
Black Chandelier Lighting - Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy, which wasn`t so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically, although it doesn`t look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking, even though it has it`s roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won`t refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
When you are deciding to purchase lighting for your home, chandeliers may not be a part of lighting options you have considered. Ornate, crystal chandeliers are usually the first type of chandeliers that people think of when you mention them. But these sparkling hanging lights are not the only style chandeliers available - not by a long shot.
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.
