How to select the right Chandelier.

The dictionary describes a chandelier as a branched, decorative lighting fixture that holds a number of bulbs and candles and is suspended from a ceiling. But a chandelier is much much more than that. A chandelier can not only make a statement but also can be the focal point of your home, wither a mansion or a small apartment. Choosing the right chandelier is very important! To select the right chandelier. the first rule to go bu in selecting the correct chandelier is KNOW THE SIZE OF THE ROOM OR AREA THE CHANDELIER WILL BE PLACED IN.The formula for selecting the correct chandelier is Width of room +  Length of the room  = diameter of the chandelier in inches! "Example" a 12 x 12 room  is 12 +12 =24 diameter of chandelier is 24 inches. 
Chandeliers make a dramatic visual impact and are a great way to set the tone for a room's decor. Crystal chandeliers are very popular in formal entertaining areas like dining rooms and entrances. But there are plenty of other styles and light sources available, including incandescent, fluorescent and a growing selection of LED designs. With so many choices, the chandelier is a perfect way to also add light and drama to bedrooms, living rooms and other spaces throughout the house. Before shopping, first ask yourself: How much lighting is needed? Which is the greatest need, general or ambient lighting? When in doubt, opt for a design that gives more light, such as a tiered chandelier to better illuminate your space. Simply dim the light when you want the instant glamour of a soft, glowing atmosphere similar to candlelight. Most important of all, follow our simple guidelines for hanging a chandelier to ensure you buy the right size fixture and that it looks great when hung. To look their best, chandeliers should hang approx. 30 to 34 inches over a dining room table in rooms with 8' ceilings. If your ceiling is higher than 8', mount the fixture an additional 3" higher for each foot of ceiling.
