The chandelier, as we know it, with all its glory and crystals, has always been found in mainly three areas in the house; the dining room, the salon and hallways or foyers. Now, because of our changing lifestyle, because of new designs in rooms, and because of the change in what chandeliers look like, we can actually use them in all rooms. The different colors, sizes and materials used in chandeliers have contributed to why chandeliers are becoming more and more popular.
Here, we'll show you that you can put chandeliers in rooms you never thought of using them in before.
Kitchen Chandeliers: Twig branch chandeliers are one example that fit in nicely in a kitchen, and give an outdoor feel to the area. They often give a rustic look, which is good if your kitchen has a lot of natural wood.
Even if you like a traditional crystal chandelier, you could use one in the kitchen, which would give a chic look, along with mounted wall lights. Pendent chandeliers are also an all time favorite for kitchens.
The bedroom usually would use a smaller size chandelier than other outside rooms. The key is not purchasing one too big or too small for your bedroom. For modern design bedroom, a metal style is suggested. If your bedroom is more classic, an antique style or crystal one works well. You also need to determine its usage; for example, is it the main source of lighting, or just a decorative piece? Bedrooms are very versatile, so basically anything goes according to what your bedroom style is. An orb chandelier gives a new look to a traditional bedroom, and also adds more to a modern bedroom.
If you want to get really creative, a different look can be achieved by hanging metal chandeliers low on either side of the bed. While it would give your bedroom a brand new look, it needs to be handled with more caution and kept away from children.
Even children bedrooms can have a whole new look with a cool design and kid style chandelier. Kids love bright colors, and also shapes and cartoonish characters. These types of chandeliers are light and bright and add a colorful look to kidâ€™s room or nursery. You can find many styles that suit girls and others that suit boys, or styles and colors that suit both.
If you're tired of the same old neon lighting fixtures on your bathroom ceilings, a simple chandelier will give your bathroom a whole new spin.
Or you can go with a more extravagant look with a ceiling chandelier and mounted wall lights.
A final point is in knowing what the right size chandelier is for which room. A simple way to estimate the best size is to add the dimensions of the room together( in feet), and then convert the answer to inches. The answer in inches should equal the diameter of the chandelier. So if your room measures 10' x 14' the diameter of the fixture should be approximately 24 inches. Donâ€™t worry if you think the chandelier you like is too big. Actually, the biggest mistake most people do is to buy one that is too small.
