“Chandeliers are marvels of drop-dead showiness, the jewellery of architecture.” - Peter York
If you are reading this post, then I am pretty sure that you are already charmed by these lovely artefacts. They have been around for centuries and were often considered a thing of luxury. Earlier, only the affluent could purchase crystal chandelier as they were quite expensive to make. Today, it is much easier to purchase them within your budget constraints. But the main idea is to purchase the right type of product, so that it gives your interiors a regal look and feel.
Now you might wonder why crystal chandeliers are so popular among the masses? Well, there are two main reasons behind the whole thing. The first is that these are available in many attractive designs, which appeals to those looking at it. Do a quick research about them online and you will be stunned at the spectacular pieces that are available on the market on leading stores. The next reason is the more practical one. Whether you use candles or modern lights, the embedded crystals will beautifully scatter light and add to the aesthetics of the property wherever the chandelier is installed.
Let us proceed to take a look at some common points, which will help you make the right choice.
- Decide where you are going to place the chandelier(s). Will it be a central piece in your hallway or a decor piece in the kitchen?
- A chandelier can be quite heavy depending on the design you choose. This is the reason why you need to make sure that they are installed by professionals so as to avoid any mishaps later.
- Talking about installation, make sure that they are installed at proper height and have apt dimensions. Any piece that is too big or small, or is hung too high or low will lose its effects and become an eyesore.
To sum it all up, when you take care of these three things, everything else will fall in place.
