Chandeliers have a long history of adding elegance to any room. They have been around since the 14th century and are still popular today. Many homeowners choose to use chandeliers in their home as a way to highlight the architecture of the room and provide a romantic, dreamlike feel.
Size and Proportions
Choosing the proper size of a chandelier for a room is important to ensure that it looks proportional with the rest of the decor. When hanging a chandelier over a dining table, for instance, the fixture should be at least one-half to two-thirds the width of the table. Alternatively, a chandelier that is too large for the space can make the design of the room appear unbalanced and overwhelming.
To determine the right chandelier size, measure the room’s length and width and add those measurements together. The ideal diameter of a chandelier should be about 2 feet larger than the room’s width for a small room and about a foot wider than the room’s width for a large room.
The shape of the chandelier is also important to consider when determining the correct size. There are several different shapes and styles of chandeliers that you can choose from, including traditional, antique, modern, and rustic. You can also consider a tiered chandelier, which is a great option for a high ceiling foyer.
Chains are a common component of chandeliers, and they are critical for the movement from arm to arm, bobeche to bobeche and top to bottom. Chains can be made in a wide range of sizes and materials, including chrome, gold or brass and can include beads, pins or connectors.
Generally, chains are 39 inches in length, but can be shorter or longer depending on the design of the chandelier and its intended use. The length of the chain is critical to the look of the chandelier, as it allows the different elements to connect to each other, which creates beauty and refraction.
