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.
Most of this fixtures are made from iron; this is why they are heavy. But this could not be a problem for most homes because there are central beams that can support its weight. The fixture that is made from iron can be contemporary looking, although it has the roots from being antique. Another good option is the black glass crystals. It will not refract the light like a typical fixture but it can add sleek modern look to any room.
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.
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.
Consider the Price. Last, you`ll want to consider the price as well if you want to install chandelier lighting. These fixtures can be quite expensive, depending on the specific style and size that you choose. You may want to set your budget ahead of time to ensure you don`t spend more than you should on it. Setting a budget is helpful and you can often save some money by comparing prices on the chandelier light fixtures.
