Chandeliers have historically been known as status symbols. Simply put, they’re an impressive item to have in your home. While they were originally ceiling fixtures that held candles (hence the name) they have since become synonymous with crystals. Having an array of crystals hanging from your ceiling brings a brilliant ambience and immediate class to any room. When anyone walks into a room with a chandelier, it’s inevitably the first thing they notice. The way the light catches it brings the eye’s attention to it immediately, and it sets an amazing tone for the home and the room.
With that being said, as it makes such a statement, it’s important to choose the right chandelier for any room. The first thing to think about is size. If a chandelier is too big, then it will take attention away from the other carefully crafted décor in you room. You’ve undoubtedly put plenty of time and energy into the entire room’s decoration, so you want a chandelier that will both stand out and complement its fellow furniture and decoration. When choosing size, you want to measure how tall the ceiling is, as well as the size of the room in general. This might seem obvious, but the smaller the room, the smaller you want the chandelier to be, and vice-versa.
The next thing to think about, as for any piece of furniture or home décor, is style. More detailed and decorative chandeliers work as a compliment to rooms with more traditional style, to add a little bit of excitement to a more ordered room. A more modern room usually calls for more modest chandeliers, as modern styles are able to do enough eye catching on their own, and you don’t want to clutter the senses with an overly decorative chandelier.
One of the best things about chandeliers is that they’re both beautiful and functional. They do a great job of illuminating a living room, bathroom, dining room, or even a larger closet.
