Among the myriads of chandelier lighting fixtures to choose from, crystal chandeliers remains as the most popular preference. These chandeliers are constructed from cut glass crystal pieces that gracefully hang on the arms of the fixture. Crystals reflects light easily and the lights they reflect often produce shimmering effects, which makes them all the more visibly entertaining. Crystal chandeliers were popularized by elite Europeans and wealthy Americans during 1920's and 1930's.
Styles It is all about style these days. Everyone has a personal style and your home should be no different. The key is to make sure that the styles inside your home compliment each other. If you pick a black chandelier for the dining room, you need to make sure that the other decor elements work with the dramatic look of a black chandelier. Having a floral wall paper in the same room with a black chandelier is not going to work. People might not know why they think it looks weird, but they will think it looks weird.
Design Tips A chandelier can never be your only light source. You will need to plan for other layers of lighting. First, make sure that you get a dimmer installed for the chandelier. This is usually standard, but make sure that it happens. You will want at the minimum, a floor lamp. Choose one that will blend with the room. Find a neutral color for the shade and a mat finish for the metal. The floor lamp is the handmaiden for the chandelier -- it cannot overpower it. Depending on your budget, you may opt for two or three sconces. Chandeliers and sconces are a perfect lighting pair.
