Style of the chandelier: As it is most likely going to be the center of attention in any room it is essential that you choose a chandelier that has a look and style which is in keeping with the rest of your décor. You do not want to draw attention to your chandelier for all the wrong reasons after all!
Kichler Crystal Chandeliers. Kichler`s exclusive line of Chandelettes or mini chandeliers offer the glamorous look of a chandelier over your vanity or desk in your breakfast nook or as a bed side light.
Among the myriads of chandelier lighting fixtures to choose from crystal chandeliers remains as the most popular preference. These chandeliers are constructed from cut glass crystal pieces that gracefully hang on the arms of the fixture. Crystals reflects light easily and the lights they reflect often produce shimmering effects which makes them all the more visibly entertaining. Crystal chandeliers were popularized by elite Europeans and wealthy Americans during 1920`s and 1930`s.
Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling and 3-4 inches for the chandelier hook the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
On the other hand antler chandeliers as their name implies are derived from the shed antlers of deer elk or moose. These chandelier lighting fixtures are commonly used in western-style homes such as log cabins and ranch residences. You can establish a rustic appeal inside your living space just by hanging an antler chandelier on your ceiling. If you can`t afford an authentic antler chandelier piece you can opt for a faux antler chandelier that is made from plastic fibers designed to look like original antlers.
Choosing a chandelier is made simple by the many different styles. Today there are chandeliers and other hanging lamps designed to fit into almost any décor. Even men who dream in flannel and boots can find a variety of chandelier styles to fit their design scheme. Below are a few style choices:
