Murano glass chandeliers are contemporary chandelier fixtures that originated from Murano Italy which is regarded as the glass blowing capital of the world. These light fixtures denote a specific chandelier design that is often curvy and tubular in form exclusively made from blown Murano glass. Because glass can be molded into several shapes Murano chandeliers are often utilized with floral motifs and other complex figures and usually comes in pastel hues. The use of different colors in these chandeliers allows them to emit unique and creative light effects.
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.
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.
While a traditional crystal chandelier can look at home in almost any setting if you want to go in for an ornate wrought iron chandelier or perhaps a contemporary one it is important to first determine that such a design will match your home décor. Remember while choosing a chandelier style you want to go in for one that matches your décor and not contrasts with it. In addition to the above ease of cleaning number of bulbs (depending on how much lighting you require) and your budget are the other factors to consider when choosing a chandelier.
Remember to stick with the classic designs. Remember that a colored chandelier will become dated in another 5-10 years. Match the chandelier to the room and the mood you wish to feel rather than with the times.
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.
