Finishes – Chandeliers come in a variety of finishes. Take a cue from the existing finishes in your home. If the door handles and cabinet hardware are all in brushed nickel, choose lighting fixtures in a complementary finish. Popular chandelier finishes include: • Antique bronze • Oil-rubbed bronze • Brushed nickel • Polished nickel • Black iron
Reserve large chandeliers for grand entryways or a large formal dining room. If your dining room table is extra long, consider hanging two medium chandeliers instead of one large one.Most chandeliers come with an adjustable rod or chain so you can alter the hanging height as needed.

In general, look for a warm white color temperature for living rooms and bedrooms, a bright white color temperature for kitchens and workspaces, and a daylight color temperature for reading nooks and studies.

Beaded chandeliers are a fun option. They can be fancy or casual depending on the materials used. A chandelier with beaded shells can complement a nautical theme. Reversible chandeliers allow you to have the arms point up or down. Direct the arms up for ambient lighting and down for task lighting.

Yollanthe is a home editor and is also (naturally) a total homebody. But she'll always venture out for her book club, a heaping bowl of steaming ramen, or the latest Kristen Wiig flick.
