oops. Chandelier. October 11th , 2017.
There was a time when chandelier light fixtures were thought of as cultured and high class accessories for well-to-do homes. Luxurious ones were, and still are, part of opera houses, exquisite restaurants, hotels, and other establishments. Nowadays, though, you can find a chandelier for almost any room of your home to fit any motif or decorating design. Some of these light fixtures are still adorned with the more traditional hanging crystals, but many others are more simple in style, making use of other materials for lighting and decoration.
If you`re looking for a chandelier lighting today you have many options from antique looking to contemporary pendant chandeliers. You can even find chandelier shades to change the look of your already existing chandelier. Many people prefer this type as the light is not as harsh as the typical chandelier that has exposed bulbs. If you have an already existing light fixture, installing a new chandelier can be as easy as turning off the power, removing the old fixture and connecting the color coded wire to your new fixture. If you don`t feel comfortable doing it, it`s an easy and quick job for an electrician. Take a look at what`s out there, there`s sure to be something that suits your style.
The bottom of your chandelier should not hang more than 7 feet from the floor. The dimension of your rustic chandeliers in proportion to your entryway can appear either as a pleasing journey into what lies ahead or can draw the attention of one`s gaze to an object that just doesn`t look quite right. An easy formula to use in selecting the right sized hanging light fixture in the entranceway is to measure your area. For example, if your foyer is 12` by 15`, add 12 plus 15 to arrive at 27. 27 inches is the proper diameter for your chandelier. This formula will work for any area of your home.
Chandeliers that use real candles are a great way to bring classical light to a room. It is a great way to set the mood for a relaxing evening with friends and family. If lighting real candles seems like a hassle to you then you can get the same mood by installing a faux candle chandelier in your home. If you have a rustic style home then a real or faux antler chandelier will look amazing.
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.
