Friday, July 1, 2016

Lighting in your home is important and a must have. If you do not have any natural lighting, you want to make sure that you offer other lighting sources from lamps to overhead lights. Chandeliers are a great option for any home and they will add a touch of luxury. Below, we will provide you with some do’s and don’ts to ensure that your chandeliers look great and match in your home.

Chandeliers Do 1: Choose the Right Size

The first thing you want to do is choose the right size chandelier for your home. If you choose one that is too big, it will overpower the room, but, if you choose one too small, it will look odd and not provide enough light.

You should keep in mind that you want to choose the size of the chandelier based on the size of the room, which means you need to measure the space you. Once you have a number in feet, add the two numbers together and that number in inches should be the diameter of the piece.

Chandeliers Don’t 1: Hang the Chandelier Too Low

If you do not hang the chandelier up high enough, you will find that people constantly bump into it when they attempt to walk near or around it. You should have the chandelier sit at about 36 inches from your dining room table as to provide enough room for everyone.

Chandeliers Do 2: Don’t Be Afraid of Ornate Chandeliers

An ornate chandelier can be a focal point in any room and provide you and your guests with something to talk about. You should choose beautiful pieces that really enhance the room. If you are a person who likes more simple options, that is okay too. Just don’t be afraid of the chandelier.

Chandeliers Don’t 2: Limit Your Usage to One Chandelier

You can have multiple chandeliers in your home and you do not have to be scared to have more than one. If you have a large room, you can use two chandeliers to light the space. If you are worried that you have too much light, simply install a dimmer switch to help control the lighting in the room.

If you are looking for a way to light your home beautifully and elegantly, choose a chandelier. Of course, you should keep the above do’s and don’ts in mind when you choose to decorate.
