If you’re looking for a source of lighting in one of the public areas of your home, you can’t go wrong with a crystal chandelier! Rather than being a huge fussy affair, modern chandeliers are often sleek and space-conservative, giving you both a graceful elegance as well a unique charm.
There are many rooms which might be suited to a crystal chandelier. An entrance way is an excellent place for a crystal chandelier as it will illuminate the first area that your guests see. This is a first impression that is hard to beat in terms of sheer beauty and class. If you have a chandelier in the entry way, think about the sort of impression you would like to convey. Do you enjoy a more antique look? Take a look at the many modern chandeliers that are modeled after the classic designs of the 1920s and the 1930s. During this time, you would find many chandeliers that were colorful and clear, with crystal chandeliers leading the pack in terms of elegance.
For a more fun, quirky look, consider getting a crystal chandelier that aggressively modern. There are many shapes and styles to choose from and you can take your pick from a wide variety of different and attractive designs. Chandeliers also don’t have to be the over-elaborate confections of steel and crystal of yesteryear either. You can find crystal chandeliers that are asymmetrical and give off a strong light. Asymmetrical chandeliers are a good idea if your space is irregularly shaped, but it can also be a great addition to a home that prefers the modern over the traditional. Crystal chandeliers, especially if the crystal is clear rather than tinted, give off a lot of strong light, so make sure you take this fact into account when you are working on the room.
There are many things to remember when you are thinking about getting a crystal chandelier. The first is the height of the room. Modern chandeliers come in all shapes and configurations and you will definitely be able to find one that suits your needs. If you have a very tall entry way, this is ideal as you can get a taller chandelier, which has its own antique charm. Make sure that a tall chandelier doesn’t make the upper area look too cluttered; if it does, you might want to consider a smaller model. With a shorter space to work with, consider a crystal chandelier that is more wide than tall. There are many different configurations to work with, so take a look at the circles or hexagons with lights on every corner. These models also have the benefit of diffusing the light and making sure that every corner is well lit.
Crystal chandeliers have traditionally be symbols of wealth and taste and it doesn’t matter today whether you want to honor that tradition with a beautifully antique chandelier or turn it on its head with a modern piece of art. Whether you’re redecorating one room or your whole home, a chandelier can be a great addition to the house, if not the focal point you use to remodel it!
