Finishes – Chandeliers come in a variety of finishes. Take a cue from the existing finishes in your home. If the door handles and cabinet hardware are all in brushed nickel, choose lighting fixtures in a complementary finish. Popular chandelier finishes include: • Antique bronze • Oil-rubbed bronze • Brushed nickel • Polished nickel • Black iron
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.
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.
Chandelier Accessories – To add extra flair, mount a decorative ceiling medallion to give the chandelier a polished look.if you find a chandelier you like and need other lighting fixtures, check to see if it’s part of a collection.
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.
