Beaded chandeliers are a fun option. They can be fancy or casual depending on the materials used. A chandelier with beaded shells can complement a nautical theme. Reversible chandeliers allow you to have the arms point up or down. Direct the arms up for ambient lighting and down for task lighting.
The first thing to consider when purchasing a chandelier is the size of the room and the chandelier. Chandeliers range in size from 17 inches to more than 48 inches in diameter, and they can have any number of lights.Mini chandeliers are growing in popularity as a way to add the style of a chandelier in smaller areas such as a powder room. For traditional locations like a dining room look for medium-size chandeliers. This size chandelier can also serve as focal point lighting for the bedroom, living room or kitchen.
A two-tier chandelier can add elegance to a dining room, whereas a three-, four-, five-tier chandelier works well for a grand entryway. Candelabra chandeliers are lighting fixtures styled to look as if they hold candles.
Both have a lower wattage but provide the same light output as higher wattage incandescent bulbs. LEDs are also cool to the touch. In general, look for a warm white color temperature for living rooms and bedrooms, a bright white color temperature for kitchens and workspaces, and a daylight color temperature for reading nooks and studies.

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.

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.
