Crystal chandelier became popular when the 17th century. People discover how to make cut glass crystals. And because of the cheaper crystal glass, the crystal chandeliers have become so popular. It can fill the room with glittering colors of the rainbow and the effect that it brings to a certain room in a home.
Most of the contemporary fixtures do not have branch or arms. They only have central support holding up a central lighted area. This is usually an art deco or a craftsman style. This modern chandelier that has central support is usually called pendant fixture. It comes from different sizes, shapes and colors.
Chandelier Lighting Fixtures. Chandelier lighting has been around for centuries, even before the middle ages people used them. Back in those days chandeliers were a simple cross of wood with spikes that candles could be stuck to. In fact the name chandelier is French for candlestick. The chandeliers were attached to a pulley by rope so that they could be raised and lowered for lighting the candles. Chandeliers in public buildings sometimes have this same feature, so that they can be lowered for cleaning and replacing burnt out bulbs. When metalwork became affordable for the merchant middle class, chandeliers became made of brass or bronze. These multi armed chandeliers with candles (and later gaslights) are still in use today, although we use electric lights today. Let`s take a look at some of the chandeliers you have to choose from.
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.
If you`re looking for a chandelier lighting today you have many options from antique looking to contemporary pendant chandeliers. You can even find chandelier shades to change the look of your already existing chandelier. Many people prefer this type as the light is not as harsh as the typical chandelier that has exposed bulbs. If you have an already existing light fixture, installing a new chandelier can be as easy as turning off the power, removing the old fixture and connecting the color coded wire to your new fixture. If you don`t feel comfortable doing it, it`s an easy and quick job for an electrician. Take a look at what`s out there, there`s sure to be something that suits your style.
