oops. Chandelier. October 29th , 2017.
Crystal chandelier became popular when the 17th century. People discover how to make cut glass crystals. And because of the cheaper crystal glass, the crystal chandeliers have become so popular. It can fill the room with glittering colors of the rainbow and the effect that it brings to a certain room in a home.
Too much light is also the mistake that many homeowners make in selecting bulbs for their chandelier light fixtures. More is not always better especially when you are trying to create a certain atmosphere with rustic chandeliers. Rule of thumb is to take the room dimensions (12`x12`= 144 square feet) and multiply this total by 1.5. This will give you the total watts necessary for the space (216 watts). If you have 6 bulbs, select the lower of the bulbs available (30 watt as opposed to 50 watt). You can always add matching wall sconces to make up the difference if needed.
Contemporary Chandelier Lighting. Many contemporary chandeliers don`t have the branched arms we think of in a classic lighting chandelier. Instead they have a central support holding up a central lighted area. This is typical of an art deco or craftsman style chandelier. Modern chandelier lighting with a central support are typically called pendant chandeliers. They can come in all sizes and shapes, from mini chandeliers to streamlined steel.
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.
Keep Size in Mind. One of the most important things to remember as you consider chandelier light fixtures is to keep size in mind. There are various sizes to choose from so as you make your choice, keep in mind the size of your room furniture, the room size, and of course the size of this chandelier as well. While you want to think big, making this light fixture the center focal point, you want to avoid making your room look cluttered with one that is too large. On the other hand, something that is too small will look out of place.
