With such a wide variety of choices on the market for new chandeliers, how do you come to a conclusion and pick just one? There are two great ways that you can use fairly easily to figure out what chandelier is perfect in the room you’re planning to decorate. One thing you’ll need to do before you set out to buy new chandelier lighting, is understand what it is that you’re looking at.
Different terms are used for various styles of decorating. Listed below are some of the terms used for the most common types of chandelier light.
Contemporary Chandeliers – These are the chandeliers used in most homes these days. Contemporary chandeliers capture the essence of modern decorations. If you’re looking to achieve a common modern motif, you’re probably aiming your bright lights down at the wall. This is incredibly elegant, but to increase the warmth in the room, you’ll need a couple contemporary chandeliers to bring the ambient light to eye level.
Victorian Chandeliers – The crème de le crème of the crystal chandelier lineup. If you have a Victorian style home, or motif to your decorations, purchasing and installing Victorian chandeliers will help to complete the overall feel of the décor. Crystal chandeliers are incredibly elaborate designs that encompass a more formal lighting setup. If you’re looking for something slightly more subtle, but still along the lines of Victorian aged homes, glass drop chandeliers are another great choice.
Rustic Chandeliers – When you look at a rustic chandelier, you’ll be hard pressed to not imagine rolling plains with a cabin in the middle of nowhere, or perhaps even in a lodge in the middle of the mountains. These types of chandeliers are perfect for a single man’s cave.
Tiffany Chandeliers – Extremely common chandeliers, Tiffany style lighting has a wide variety of styles and lighting arrangements. Different colored glass designs are used to achieve dramatic results, often being able to be custom ordered to match your décor much closer.
Another method you can use that helps tremendously in determining which style of chandeliers lighting is perfect for your home, is to take some pictures along with you while you are shopping. These pictures will help keep your memory refreshed, rather than having to try to imagine the new chandelier in your home on a blank canvas. As with any type of purchase, you need to make sure that you have a price range you’re going to stick to, because you can get carried away pretty quickly when there are beautiful works of art laid out in front of you.
