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
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. For more information on light bulbs
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.
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.
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.
