To help determine your style take pictures of your rooms and pictures of your favorite pieces in that room. Now go to a lighting gallery or two with pictures in hand. Check out the lighting styles available and pick a few that seem to fit in with your pictures. Now take pictures of those chandeliers and other hanging lights and take them home.
Metal Chandeliers: These are also comparatively cheaper and can be categorised under cheap chandeliers. Metals like puffed iron aluminium steel brass and many more are used to make these metal ones.
Candle chandeliers made from metals such as brass brushed nickel and wrought iron are elegant pieces that resonates the rich history of the past. Antique chandeliers made from metals used to hold candles instead of electric bulbs and have been in existence since the 1400`s though they were reinvented in differing finishes throughout the centuries. Antique metal candle chandeliers are among the most expensive lighting fixtures today and may cost up to $60000 because of their rarity and origin making them collectible items. If you want to save energy and you have the right budget you can always opt for an antique metal candle chandelier.
Accent Lighting: If you want to place your chandelier over something specific so as to illuminate that object or if you want it to provide you with accent lighting for specific areas then you should choose one with spotlights and down lights. A spotlight will help you to focus lighting on special works of art and help to bring about their beauty. With down lights you can provide accent lighting for tabletops and other specific areas.
Diffused Lighting: Many people like to have sober diffused lighting in their home. They do not like the glare of very bright lights. If you too desire such lighting you should choose a chandelier with uplights. An uplight will throw light on the ceiling which then gets diffused and provides a very warm glow. You can also choose a chandelier with shades as this will help to maximize the light filtering down but reduce the glare at the same time.
When you are deciding to purchase lighting for your home chandeliers may not be a part of lighting options you have considered. Ornate crystal chandeliers are usually the first type of chandeliers that people think of when you mention them. But these sparkling hanging lights are not the only style chandeliers available - not by a long shot.
