HomeThangs.com has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer, with that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.
Having thousands of chandeliers available, HomeThangs has made a research that showed this wide selection is sometimes overwhelming to the regular customer. That is why interior designers at HomeThangs have introduced a few tips to make this choice easy on the consumer.
The size of a chandelier will have a huge effect on its splendor. Too big will look ominous and gaudy, but too small will look puny and pathetic. The size of the room ultimately determines the size of the chandelier.
1. Airy chandeliers look larger than they really are. Something about the lighter mass makes them appear to inhabit more of the air. This is always good because a chandelier that is a little too big looks way better than one that is a little too small.
The wrought iron chandelier from the Crystorama’s Soho collection is a perfect example of an airy chandelier. It is thin and delicate looking with its subtle stands of golden teak Swarovski crystals.
2. To figure out approximate diameter of the chandelier take the dimensions of the room in feet, add them up, and there is the diameter in inches. A 20 foot by 20 foot room will call for a chandelier with a 40 inch diameter.
3. The heavy style chandeliers are great for rooms with tall ceilings. If a foyer has smaller square footage but a very tall ceiling, a heavy chandelier will grab more focus. It will not seem too large for the room, but it will also not get overlooked by hanging in such a tall space. Example: The heavy iron wrought chandelier is a showy masterpiece complete with golden teak hand cut crystals.
4. Another detail that helps with tall ceilings is multiple tiers on a chandelier.
5. One thing that is key when hanging a chandelier in a large room is to leave 7 feet of space between the hanging fixture and the floor. Tall doorways, arches and chandeliers make everybody feel safer. The Highlands chandelier utilizes the beauty of the Victorian era with its coiled multiple tiers. It has fifteen lights that glisten beneath elegant shades.
6. When buying a chandelier, it is important to consider how its finish will look against the backdrop of the décor in a room.
The Aloha chandelier by Triarch resembles a pineapple, an exotic and tempting fruit covered in spikes. The frame appears finished in English bronze. Its prism crystals cast rainbows about the room.
The Maria Theresa chandelier from Crystorama resembles the type of chandeliers used in an opera house. This chandelier is tediously crafted with hand cut wood polished crystal, each piece laboriously finished by an artisan.
This even more majestic Maria Theresa chandelier from Crystorama comes draped in wood polished crystal as well. The masterpiece looks like a wonderland of frost. These are fantastic for a ballroom or a huge entryway.
