Style of the chandelier: As it is most likely going to be the center of attention in any room, it is essential that you choose a chandelier that has a look and style which is in keeping with the rest of your décor. You do not want to draw attention to your chandelier for all the wrong reasons after all!
When choosing a chandelier for a particular room, you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance, if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long, you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus, the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However, you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low, you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear.
They have been in use since medieval times, i.e., since the sixteenth century, and are believed to have originated from European countries. In ancient days crystals, glasses and ceramics were used to make chandeliers of different sizes and shapes. Chandeliers generally have metal branches, which fit the light holders. The metal branches are highly decorated with art work and stylish designs. The traditional chandeliers have flower, leaf and creeper designs on the metal branches. But, modern chandeliers have classy and trendy art work. The classification of chandeliers is based on the materials that are used to make them. Most of the chandeliers are white in colour because the lighting in chandeliers is by refraction of light through the crystals and glasses used, but, there are also black chandeliers, which are pretty popular because they portray an exotic look. The various types of chandeliers have been discussed below.
