Chandeliers outfit your home with the necessary light, known as general lighting or ambient lighting, which provides an area with overall illumination. General lighting is essential to any lighting plan and can be accomplished with a top-notch Chandelier.

Shopping for a new Chandelier doesn’t have to be a daunting task; with a few guidelines and helpful tips, you’ll have a wonderful addition to your foyer, kitchen, dining room or great room in no time:

• Be aware of your home’s overall style and choose the appropriate design that suits your needs. There are a lot of Transitional Style Chandeliers out there that effortlessly blend with either contemporary or traditional style decors.

• Determining the right size of your Chandelier depends on the size of the room you want to light so make sure you have evaluated the space in which you plan to hang it – for a dining room, measure the table you plan to hang the Chandelier over (it should be about 12” narrower than the table); any other room, you should measure the size of the room, ceiling height and furniture so the proportions harmonize. The Chandelier should hang at least 6 ½’ to 7’ above the floor.

• How much light does your space need? Determining this will help you choose how many lights you want on your chandelier. Depending on the size of the room and how much ambient light is needed is how you will establish the number of bulbs you want.

• Adding a dimmer control is a great idea, it will also help with your bulb choice, as it allows you to modify the light depending on how much is needed at the time and what mood you want to achieve.

Chandeliers can add a radiant shine and flair to your foyer, kitchen, dining room, bedroom or even bathroom (depending on the size); it is usually the focal point of your space, the first thing people see when entering the room so you should take your time deciding on what style and size is fitting for you and your home.

Add an eye-catching sparkle to your space with the classic and refined style of Crystal Lighting. Here are a few tips:

Crystal Chandeliers and Crystal Foyer Lights have been popular for years and years and are the epitome of timeless elegance and class. Crystal Style Lighting features lavish and very delicate designs with brilliant and elaborate adornments of crystal rosettes and droplets – a style that dates back to the 16th Century. Often, in smaller spaces, large and elaborate chandeliers overpower rooms but with the smaller Crystal Flush Mounts, Mini Chandeliers and Wall Sconces, it is possible for any size space to be bejeweled in the ultra-chic Crystal Style Lighting.

This classic Crystal 12 Light Imperial Silver Chandelier by Schonbek Worldwide Lighting displays that sparkle and pizzazz Crystal Style Lighting will bring to your space.
