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.
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.
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
Chandelier Accessories – To add extra flair, mount a decorative ceiling medallion to give the chandelier a polished look.if you find a chandelier you like and need other lighting fixtures, check to see if it’s part of a collection.

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.
