Important Things to Ponder with Crystal Chandelier

There are things that we can really get fond of in crystal chandeliers; no matter how much expensive the piece is we still go for it to enhance our home’s style. While a crystal chandelier is technically any light that hangs from the ceiling, most people think of crystal chandeliers when they hear the word. The refractive beauty of crystals brings light to life in a way that few other materials can. And while most people associate crystal chandeliers with ornate, baroque decorating styles, there are thousands of styles to choose from, including one that’s just right for your dining room, living room or foyer. I think that it is up to you to know where to place it. You just need to know where to put it.

Measurements of the Place – First up you need to measure the height of the room where your crystal chandelier will be hung. Ideally, a crystal chandelier should be no more than 30 inches overhead. If it is hung too high, it will appear dwarfed. It is quite important to know the basic measurements of your room that the crystal chandelier will be put on so get on out there and start measuring.

Choosing a Place – Now, we need to consider the room in which the crystal chandelier will be hung. Different rooms call for different lighting styles and sizes. Use the following guidelines to help you determine size:

Entrance hall or foyer: choose a chandelier that is 30 to 40 percent of the width of the foyer.

Living room/family rooms: choose a chandelier that is 20 to 30 percent of the room’s width.

Dining room: choose a chandelier that is 1.5 to 2 feet wide for a six person dining table, 2 to 2.5 feet wide for an eight person dining able and one that is 2.5 to 3.5 feet wide for one that seats 10 to 12 people.

Wattage – Well, the total wattage of all the bulbs on the chandelier added together should be no more than 200 to 400 watts. Be sure that you meet those guidelines because it is important that you know the wattage of the piece for sure safety.

Styling Options – Choose a style that will hang no more than thirty inches above table tops or counter surfaces. Remember that with good style your crystal chandelier will truly have its moment. Be sure to choose wisely and of course choose what you think is the best. It is pretty much a good thing to have it in a manner where we can appreciate it. Also choose a style that accents the architectural style of your home rather than the décor of your rooms.

Decide whether to use clear crystals, colored crystals or a combination of the two. Shop around for the best price. High-end crystal chandeliers are priced by the quality as well as by the quantity and size of the crystals. After all of it, you will get to see the fruits of your labor, a crystal chandelier that is truly stunning and simply great to have in a home.
