Shopping for Chandeliers
Chandeliers can be interesting choices for lighting and what better way to add personality and luminosity into your home than with a chandelier? And, like furniture, many styles are available to suit your lighting and decorative needs. For instance, the Pageant 7-Light Chandelier found on maria4home.com evokes a traditional sense of style with its bronze finished, wrought iron frame. For those of you who are daring and enjoy contemporary styles, chandeliers like the Temeraire 18-Light Chandelier and the Effervescence Chandelier will really help your decor stand out. Just be sure to keep these three design tips in mind:
1. If it’s too big and your space is too small, chances are it’ll dwarf the look of your home even more
2. If you’re looking to warm up a room, go with a transitionally styled chandelier. If you want your chandelier to define the space it’ll be in, it won’t hurt to go with one that comes in more than one tier or in a contemporary finish.
3. Make sure that energy efficient bulbs can be used in place of the traditional candelabra bulbs to save money (this applies to ALL lighting, not just chandeliers)
No matter what, a chandelier will either make or break your home’s personality and decor. Be sure to choose wisely and carefully.
