When choosing a chandelier for a particular room you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But if you have really high ceilings then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier the smaller it is going to appear.
In the modern era chandeliers have been made in a collection of styles from large decorative chandeliers used in high-class restaurants to small colourful ones especially for children. They are far more popular and available to the public and are less associated with royalty and riches. Art deco chandeliers began to be produced in 1970 and have continued to be very popular for a modern buyer looking for a contemporary piece for their home. Throughout the ages chandeliers have developed massively as they have been made by a variety of materials in a variety of shapes to suit constantly changing fashions. Despite their widespread popularity in modern day they still breathe an air of sophistication into any room.
Chandeliers date all the way back to the medieval times. The only people to have chandeliers during this time were the wealthy and the lights could be moved from room to room. If the lighting was needed in a different room it was picked up and carried. The chandelier was then set down and relit if any of the candles had gone out.
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.
If you wish to clean the entire chandelier it is not necessary nowadays to dismantle the whole chandelier dust various parts in soapy water dry them carefully and return back all the parts to their places. It is now possible to buy a special detergent to clean crystal chandeliers. The detergent need only be sprayed on the chandelier and all dirt will disappear and will drain away onto a mat placed beneath the chandelier. The work which would otherwise take hours is finished in a few minutes.
Chandeliers are still considered elegant and may have a bit of the status symbol connected to them. There are so many different designs and sizes to choose from it can become overwhelming. In this day and age the prices of chandeliers are a bit more affordable so that one does not have to be rich to own one
