Tips for hanging and selecting the perfect chandelier
If you are in the process of decorating your home, you may feel slightly overwhelmed, especially when it comes to selecting lighting. But, although there are tons of choices to choose from, by following a few simple tips, you can assure the process won't drive you crazy. This post will focus how to appropriately beautify your home using chandeliers. These ornate lighting fixtures are beautiful pieces that add sophistication and glamour to any room.
A good place to start is to decide what style you want. Many Da Vinci chandeliers are adorned with beautiful and brightly colored Swarovski crystals, while contemporary modern chandeliers emit more neutral and yellow-tinted light. It is important to note that your decision should be based on the current decor of your home. For example, it may look out of place if your home has an ultra-modern feel to it and there is a traditional chandelier hanging in the entryway. After you have concluded what type of fixture suits your home best, it's time to measure the size of the room and collect the dimensions of furniture where the chandelier will hang. Next, measure how high your ceiling is. This step is incredibly important because it will help determine what size it should be. If you are hanging it in the dining room, lighting experts say it should be placed approximately 12 inches above the center of the table.
If the chandelier will be in the entryway of your home, make sure it is hung between six and a half and seven feet above the floor. But, if you have very high ceilings, it is perfectly appropriate and acceptable to hang it even higher. Whatever type of chandelier you choose, there's no doubt that the fixture will create a big impact upon those who enter your home.
