Buying a crystal chandelier can be an exciting experience as well as a valuable investment. Below are some important tips to enable the shopping process to be more coherent and much easier.
Diffused Lighting: Many people like to have sober diffused lighting in their home. They do not like the glare of very bright lights. If you too desire such lighting you should choose a chandelier with uplights. An uplight will throw light on the ceiling which then gets diffused and provides a very warm glow. You can also choose a chandelier with shades as this will help to maximize the light filtering down but reduce the glare at the same time.
Glass Chandeliers: The cheapest alternative for crystals is glass hence glass is used to make cheap chandeliers. Most of the modern ones have glass shades and domes. By and large white or yellow coloured glasses are used to make glass ones. But there are also multi-coloured ones where stained glasses are used.
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.
Type of lighting required: The kind of lighting that you need is also an important criterion to consider. Here are the various types of chandeliers used to bring about different kinds of lighting: Ambient Lighting: If you wish to achieve ambient (general) lighting you should go in for a big one which has plenty of bulbs and open lights. This will ensure that the chandelier provides light for the entire room.
