What styles of chandeliers can fit your taste perfectly?

Chandelier lightings have begun with the traditional chandeliers for a long time but it 
doesn't mean that traditional styles are your best choice.Because it depends on the design 
of your home's unique.If those can Cater to your taste and house personality,there are

What size should my chandelier be more suitable?

How to decide the size of your new light fixture is also a difficult problem.As our 
experience,the size depends on several key factors:

  • Room size:The overall size of the chandelier can not be too big or too small for the room where you are going to install.If you are guessing,you prefer something a little bigger to something smaller.Because too small looks urgly,uncoordinated and out of place.Here we have a method to do that.A general guideline to determine the ideal diameter is to add the width and length of your room together (in feet), then use that measurement in inches as the size of the light fixture. For example, a room that is 16feet by 13 feet would need a chandelier that’s 29 inches in diameter.
  • Height:We should take the height problem seriously.Because it determines you to select a large or small,high or low chandeliers.A higher ceiling affords itself better to a larger light fixture, but as a rule of thumb, chandelier light fixtures should hang no more than 7 feet from the floor, regardless of ceiling height. If it's hung above a surface, like a tabletop, give the surface and chandelier at least 30 to 32 inches of separation.
  • Placement:A general idea to determine the placement is to suspend it freely in the middle of the space or in an entryway or living space,referred to the room size point above.You will have a little more freedom when you extend your other furniture.Consider where you are going to place your new chandelier suspend lighting.If it's going over a piece of furniture,like a dining table or kitchen island,make sure it doesn't surpass the furniture itself.Search one that's about three-quarters the width of the object you're placing it over.

What other factors do we need to consider when we choose a chandelier?

Size is one of important factors we need to think over when we decide.However,there are 
really several factors what we also should refer to.

  • Weight:Weight is also another important factors when we choose lightings.We should take what weight of our ceiling of our house can bear into consideration and never overweight it.
  • Easy to clean:Cleaning is really a headach especially in a small limited space.If we are going to hang a chandelier light full of crystals over our bed in the bedroom,maybe we will spend a whole day to clean it in the future,and even we need to dissamble our bed before doing this.That's crazy.So a simple rule for it is that easily-cleaning chandelier lamp is for small place and hard-cleaning chandelier light fixture is for bigger place.
  • Finish:Finish is another factor of consideration.Wood color and plated finish are durable.Painted finish is easy to be rustic.And the finish color also must be in perfect harmony with the color of the room.When we select a modern chandelier for childrens,we generally follow this guideline:Pink color stands for gentle,beauty and is for girls.Blue stands for brave and fortitude and is for boys.
