When choosing a chandelier for a particular room you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But if you have really high ceilings then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier the smaller it is going to appear.
Black Chandelier Lighting - Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy which wasn`t so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically although it doesn`t look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking even though it has it`s roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won`t refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
Contemporary Chandeliers - When most people think of modern lighting they picture recessed spot and accent lights and maybe some track lighting. If they do not consider a hanging lamp or two the modern decorator may feel as if they moved into an art gallery where all the lighting is bright but far away. A chandelier in the entryway and another over the dining area can bring rich lighting down to people-level and can highlight modern style. Chrome starburst designs and cylindrical designs are both sleek modern chandelier options.
Schonbek Chandeliers. Schonbek offers a variety of original chandelier designs from traditional to minimalist. The early crystal chandeliers which date back as far as the sixteenth century were ornamented with rock crystal however in contemporary times such chandeliers have rarely been seen outside palaces and museums. The new Schonbek collection of rock crystal chandeliers is an historic event.
You can use a chandelier in almost any room since there are countless styles from which to choose from. For example the Schonbek crystal chandeliers or others dating back to the 16th century are ageless and enduring. These fixtures have withstood the test of time. Since then many other styles have evolved and are equally as impressive. Most modern fixture designs manage to offer both a nod to the past while fitting seamlessly into the decors and designs of present-day.
Chandeliers are ornamental or decorative light fixtures that are used for ceiling lighting. Usually chandeliers are centerpieces in big halls churches public galleries palaces hotels mansions etc. Common residential houses also have cheap chandeliers in the living room which are simpler versions of the chandeliers and are not as extravagant as the ones seen in public and commercial buildings. Chandeliers can be lit up with candle lights incandescent lights and also by energy saving bulbs.
