Chandelier Lighting Fixtures. Chandelier lighting has been around for centuries, even before the middle ages people used them. Back in those days chandeliers were a simple cross of wood with spikes that candles could be stuck to. In fact the name chandelier is French for candlestick. The chandeliers were attached to a pulley by rope so that they could be raised and lowered for lighting the candles. Chandeliers in public buildings sometimes have this same feature, so that they can be lowered for cleaning and replacing burnt out bulbs. When metalwork became affordable for the merchant middle class, chandeliers became made of brass or bronze. These multi armed chandeliers with candles (and later gaslights) are still in use today, although we use electric lights today. Let`s take a look at some of the chandeliers you have to choose from.
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.
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.
