There are so many choices available as you are considering chandelier light fixtures for your home. Take the time to browse through your options and then use these tips to guide you to the right purchase.
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.
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.
Consider the Price. Last, you`ll want to consider the price as well if you want to install chandelier lighting. These fixtures can be quite expensive, depending on the specific style and size that you choose. You may want to set your budget ahead of time to ensure you don`t spend more than you should on it. Setting a budget is helpful and you can often save some money by comparing prices on the chandelier light fixtures.
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.
