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.
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.
Size of the chandelier: The most important element to consider is the size. If not sized correctly a chandelier will not be able to provide lighting as desired and may well not fit into its designated spot. So here`s what you need to know about sizing a chandelier.
Ceramic Chandeliers: The next most expensive are the ceramic chandeliers which are made of porcelain. Ceramic chandeliers are mostly manufactured in China and exported all over the world. The Netherlands also have porcelain factories that manufacture ceramic ones.
