Two things to remember when hanging a chandelier are: Be sure it does not block the view of people seated at the table and it does not hang too low so people bump into it. Use the chart to help find the size that works for your home.
Many outdoor candelabras are designed to hold real candles. Crystal chandeliers are often what people imagine when thinking of chandeliers. They may be quite ornate, but they don’t have to be—some have a small number of crystals combined with lampshades for an elegant look. Paired with the right decor they add just the right amount of sparkle.
Besides looking pretty, the main role of a chandelier is to provide ambient or overall lighting. With all the different types available, it is easy to find one to fit your space. Use chandeliers in the bathroom, bedroom, dining room, foyer, kitchen, living room or master bedroom closet.For more information on lighting your home, Chandeliers with shades are the most common type of chandelier, and typically have glass or fabric shades. Tiered chandeliers command a strong presence.
Shades – Chandelier shades typically come in glass or fabric. Glass shades allow brighter light; fabric shades provide more diffused light. Popular chandelier shades include: • Seeded glass • Etched glass • Rain glass • Frosted glass • Tiffany-style glass • Linen
Reserve large chandeliers for grand entryways or a large formal dining room. If your dining room table is extra long, consider hanging two medium chandeliers instead of one large one.Most chandeliers come with an adjustable rod or chain so you can alter the hanging height as needed.

Yollanthe is a home editor and is also (naturally) a total homebody. But she'll always venture out for her book club, a heaping bowl of steaming ramen, or the latest Kristen Wiig flick.
