If you want to make your home feel a little more stylish or elegant, a chandelier is a great choice. And it's not just for the hallway. You can have a light fixture that is both a focal point and classy in any room. Having a chandelier in your home is not just a single event, but part of your life and many people call it the best home decoration. However, as stunning as they are, a chandelier is simply an elegant way to add light to a room. Choose the right one to complement your decor, whether glass or crystal. Just remember to brace yourself, Rodney!

It's shocking how many different types of chandelier lighting you can actually choose from. Traditional chandeliers are made from crystal and are designed to hang in an elegant hallway. Yet modern designs offer chandeliers in an endless supply for any room in various materials. For example, modern chandeliers come in different geometric shapes and look amazing in your living room. At the same time, you could consider a mini chandelier for your bedroom, walk-in closet or any other smaller space you feel needs an extra touch.

Like most things, the style of your home usually dictates the type of chandelier light you can hang. Space, décor, personal taste and cost will factor into your chandelier plans. While you can go with any style you desire, you need to be aware of your limitations. Space, for instance, is the only thing you can't make more of, so you are limited by the available space in the room in which you want to place a chandelier. Chandeliers hang low by design and can be imposing. However, at a standard 8-foot ceiling height, you should hang your fixture at 7 feet.

Depending on where you want it and your room's decorating style, there are many types of chandeliers from which you can choose. For instance, a dining room requires multiple points of light for a layered effect to create ambience. Therefore, an elegant and stylish crystal or glass chandelier with candelabras is right at home. Yet, direct and brighter lighting is more beneficial for your breakfast bar area when beginning your day. Typically, a chandelier of this type is made from modern materials with minimal shading for letting the light shine through more practically.

It can cost relatively little to moderately expensive to have a chandelier fitted. This, of course, depends on wiring and expert installation. Unless you are qualified, this is dangerous. But some contractors might also be experts at handling antique chandeliers made from delicate materials and will charge you more for the privilege. Of course, if money is tight or you can't afford an authentic chandelier, you can always install a plugin chandelier that fits like a standard lampshade. However, you are limited to a few choices, styles and smaller sizes if you prefer.

Summary

Traditional chandeliers are made from crystal and are designed to hang in an elegant hallway. Finding the right one can be challenging, though, since you need to decide where and for what your new chandelier will be used. However, fitting is simply a case of asking your electrician.
