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.
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.
On the other hand, antler chandeliers, as their name implies, are derived from the shed antlers of deer, elk or moose. These chandelier lighting fixtures are commonly used in western-style homes such as log cabins and ranch residences. You can establish a rustic appeal inside your living space just by hanging an antler chandelier on your ceiling. If you can`t afford an authentic antler chandelier piece, you can opt for a faux antler chandelier that is made from plastic fibers, designed to look like original antlers.
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.
When choosing a chandelier for a particular room, you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance, if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long, you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus, the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However, you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low, you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear.
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.
