Chandeliers are well known for their luxurious elegance. The light they give off adds a great deal to the room, but more than that they are a statement of luxury and style. There is no easier way to add interest than to consider a chandelier. While they are beautiful, they also cast light in stunning patterns.
There are a wide range of choices. There are they very traditional chandeliers that can be found in the grand ballrooms of the past, often featuring crystals or diamonds, sparkling in their grandeur. The modern types of chandelier have moved beyond the sparkling crystal to become more functional, and ideal for modern living. In so doing, modern chandeliers found their way into many more rooms. One such room, where chandeliers have started to appear in is the bathroom. Though a chandelier may at first seem unsuited to bathroom lighting, they do very well. Then of course there are the antique chandeliers that mirror the ages of the past. Ultra-modern designs that explore new shapes and symmetries are very common in the high tech apartments of today.
The secret to chandelier selection is to have a good think beforehand about what is needed. Consider the architectural style of the building first. A neoclassical or classical style building will need something different from a Tudor building. Pick something that plays to the strengths of the location. Next is choosing the right style for the room. Lastly is choosing the most appropriate size. While the tastes of those choosing the chandelier is the main factor in the first two elements, size is a more exact consideration.
While it’s more art than science, getting the right chandelier is a rewarding experience. One that not only promises an attractive room with warm and embracing lighting, but also one which lets us take more notice of the design elements around us. Picking the chandelier is not just fun, but interesting as well. Adding a chandelier lets you add that little bit of luxury to the home that makes the room stand out as something special.
