Most of this fixtures are made from iron; this is why they are heavy. But this could not be a problem for most homes because there are central beams that can support its weight. The fixture that is made from iron can be contemporary looking, although it has the roots from being antique. Another good option is the black glass crystals. It will not refract the light like a typical fixture but it can add sleek modern look to any room.
Your decor is the major factor in selecting the perfect chandelier light fixtures for your home. Anything made out of natural products can add drama to a room that is filled with an outdoor aura. Rustic chandeliers come in an assortment of styles from deer antlers to straight lines of rusted metal. Round, square or oblong in dimension and hung with chains or ropes will define a large lodge-like room.
Choose a Complimentary Style. Another important tip to remember if you want to add chandelier lighting to your home is to choose a complimentary style. This is going to depend upon the decor that you already have in place in the room where you are installing this fixture. If you have a modern and contemporary style in place, go for contemporary, sleek styles that will compliment the room. If your decor is more old world and rustic, then go for a brass or wrought iron option for a beautiful look. There are more formal styles available if the room has a more formal and traditional style of decor already in place.
Consumers can find chandeliers with any number of lights, from as few as three to much larger numbers. The light fixtures can be shaped like flowers or any number of other objects and designs. They are made of alabaster, crystal, iron, wood, and glass, just to name a few of the many materials gracing today`s chandeliers. Stained glass, Williamsburg, and even art deco styles are available. It`s really just a matter of your personal style as to what type of chandelier light fixture you purchase. Fancy or simple, there`s so much to choose from.
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.
