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.
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.
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.
Stay away from bright colors and gleaming brasses that do not do justice to a rustic interior. Natural and outdoorsy is the theme that you want to portray with chandelier light fixtures that accent your rustic decor. Greens, browns and grays are examples of simplicity that will bring a rustic room together.
Lights can set different accents on a home, they can provide different look such as traditional, modern, classic, stylistic, futuristic and more. And one good example of a lighting fixture is crystal chandelier. Many think that chandeliers are only use on big homes and mansions and usually it gives a home a traditional look on a home.
