oops. Chandelier. October 27th , 2017.
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.
Crystal Chandelier Lighting. Crystal chandeliers became popular when a 17th century glassmaker discovered how to make easily cut glass crystal. Until that time only rock crystal or fragile crystillo could be used for chandeliers. With the cheaper glass crystal, the popularity of crystal chandeliers exploded. They could fill a room with all the glittering colors of the rainbow, and effect that still makes them a very popular option today.
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.
Rustic chandeliers come in all sizes and shapes to bring harmony to a room without taking away from the theme when you are selective in your style, placement, dimensions and illumination. Always remember the flavor of the area and not just how lovely a light fixture may be.
Harmonize Metals in the Room. You should also consider the other metals you have in the room when choosing chandelier light fixtures. It`s a good idea to choose finishes that will harmonize together. You`ll find that antique brass and shiny brass don`t look good together. It`s best to avoid mixing shiny silver fixtures with dull pewter metals as well. As long as you keep the metals harmonized, you`ll have a great look in the room.
