Chandeliers are iconic and historical pieces. No wonder they are always present in the great and luxurious palaces. And it is possible to bring this sophistication to your home too! But do you know how to choose a chandelier for your home?
Whoever likes this piece knows that it has the potential to transform an environment, but the various options available can cause a lot of indecision. So let us help you to make sure that the lighting in your environment is efficient and incredible! Keep up with us until the end!
START WITH STYLE
There are many options of sizes, formats, materials and, of course, prices. Therefore, to choose the perfect piece you need to think about the style that most matches the decor of your home .
The classic chandeliers are those that resemble a chandelier, usually made of glass, crystal and metal. In the old days, they were lit with candles, but today the lighting has been replaced by the LED , which is much more durable and economical.
Already the more contemporary pieces have gained a more informal face. New shapes, such as circular, square, and hexagonal shapes attract attention. The raw materials have also diversified and the chandeliers can be manufactured in wood, plastic and even fabrics (natural or artificial).
The more modern models, with pendants that can be superimposed in different lengths, are in high also.
UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHANDELIER AND LAMP
A lot of people make this mistake, but chandelier and lamp are not the same thing – and you need to know which one is at the time of choice.
The first difference is that the chandeliers have ramifications and therefore more lighting points than the luminaire, making the light more diffuse. The second difference is that the chandelier is more imposing and has been in use for a longer time than the lamps (remember we said they are present in the halls of castles?).
STAY TUNED FOR TRENDS
New things are always coming and knowing what’s in the air is important to harmonize the chandelier with its decoration and renew the air of the house with elegance.
Metallic is a strong trend that has come to stay, and with it the finishes in gold, copper and rose gold. The industrial style and the rustic style have been renovated and are also beautiful and versatile options.
CONSIDER THE DIMENSIONS OF THE ENVIRONMENT
Want to know the ideal size for your chandelier? Just measure the room in which you put it. For corridor, the indicated one is to use linear pieces, that follow the direction of passage. For larger environments, it is possible to invest in larger chandeliers with more branches – and the reverse is true for smaller chambers. The stairs and entrances of the house ask for chandeliers with pendant format.
Always remember to check what else you have in the room so you do not pollute the look. The chandelier should not compete with paintings and works of art, after all, it is also an object of decoration and deserves attention.
SET AT THE TIME OF INSTALLATION
You need to think the right model to ensure that the chandelier installation is possible in the place you want. Imagine choosing a cascade piece that sits on the dining table? It would not look elegant.
To know if the chosen model will work in composition with a mobile or the environment, keep in mind that there are some pre-established distances for the installation. For example, in the dining room, it is indicated that the chandelier is between 75 and 80 centimeters above the furniture. Already for installation in larger locations, the tip is to put it at least 2.13 meters away from the ground.
In this way, you can add the chandelier size to the preset distances and compare it with the height of the environment where the installation will be done. And remember: the chandeliers can be heavy, so check if the structure of your ceiling will hold.
There are many details to take into account when choosing the chandelier, is not it? But with our tips, this task gets easier. Be sure to think about your ideal model and consider the dimensions of your environment to get it right.
Now that you know how to choose a perfect chandelier, we want to know: in which room will you install yours?
