The first thing to consider when purchasing a chandelier is the size of the room and the chandelier. Chandeliers range in size from 17 inches to more than 48 inches in diameter, and they can have any number of lights.Mini chandeliers are growing in popularity as a way to add the style of a chandelier in smaller areas such as a powder room. For traditional locations like a dining room look for medium-size chandeliers. This size chandelier can also serve as focal point lighting for the bedroom, living room or kitchen.
Shades – Chandelier shades typically come in glass or fabric. Glass shades allow brighter light; fabric shades provide more diffused light. Popular chandelier shades include: • Seeded glass • Etched glass • Rain glass • Frosted glass • Tiffany-style glass • Linen
Two things to remember when hanging a chandelier are: Be sure it does not block the view of people seated at the table and it does not hang too low so people bump into it. Use the chart to help find the size that works for your home.
Many outdoor candelabras are designed to hold real candles. Crystal chandeliers are often what people imagine when thinking of chandeliers. They may be quite ornate, but they don’t have to be—some have a small number of crystals combined with lampshades for an elegant look. Paired with the right decor they add just the right amount of sparkle.
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.
