Having a chandelier in your home can give different effects, lighting fixtures usually provide brightness in a home but crystal chandelier does not only provide brightness but a fashion trend that most households have on their homes today.
Today`s chandelier light fixtures can be sleek, shaped like lanterns, feature cup-type light holders, or even combine two different light styles. They can be one tier or two, or even more. Some are flush with the ceiling, while others drop down several feet. They come in gold, silver, pink, black, brown, and just about every color you can think of.
The bottom of your chandelier should not hang more than 7 feet from the floor. The dimension of your rustic chandeliers in proportion to your entryway can appear either as a pleasing journey into what lies ahead or can draw the attention of one`s gaze to an object that just doesn`t look quite right. An easy formula to use in selecting the right sized hanging light fixture in the entranceway is to measure your area. For example, if your foyer is 12` by 15`, add 12 plus 15 to arrive at 27. 27 inches is the proper diameter for your chandelier. This formula will work for any area of your home.
Choose a Complimentary Style. Another important tip to remember if you want to add chandelier lighting to your home is to choose a complimentary style. This is going to depend upon the decor that you already have in place in the room where you are installing this fixture. If you have a modern and contemporary style in place, go for contemporary, sleek styles that will compliment the room. If your decor is more old world and rustic, then go for a brass or wrought iron option for a beautiful look. There are more formal styles available if the room has a more formal and traditional style of decor already in place.
Too much light is also the mistake that many homeowners make in selecting bulbs for their chandelier light fixtures. More is not always better especially when you are trying to create a certain atmosphere with rustic chandeliers. Rule of thumb is to take the room dimensions (12`x12`= 144 square feet) and multiply this total by 1.5. This will give you the total watts necessary for the space (216 watts). If you have 6 bulbs, select the lower of the bulbs available (30 watt as opposed to 50 watt). You can always add matching wall sconces to make up the difference if needed.
