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.
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
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
Lighting collections offer fixtures in the same style and finish for many areas of the home. For more information on lighting options, Do not forget light bulbs. Things like color temperature, lumen and wattage all play a factor in your rooms quality of light. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) and compact fluorescents (CFLs) help lower energy costs.
