How to Find the Perfect Chandelier for Your Home

Do you want to enhance the beauty of a dull and dimly lit room? Are you looking for a focal point to attract the guests’ attentionwhen they walk in?

Chandeliers are jewels placed within the interior of your home.They are not only eye catching and exquisitely designed, but can also balance the play of lights within your interior to provideyou with a sufficiently bright room.

However, finding and placing the right chandelier in your home is not an easy task. It requires heavy deliberation and decision making on at least three aspects; the style of the chandelier, its size and its color scheme.


Chandeliers are available in a variety of styles, from traditional and antique to modern and futuristic. However, the selection of the correct one demands that you analyze the overall theme and style of your home d├ęcor. You may prefer to contrast a modern interior with an antique chandelier or you may be in favor ofmetallic chandeliers that complement the modern touch in yourhome. The decision of staying true to one style or creating a blend is entirely up to you, so make sure that you are opting for the right chandelier for your abode.


The perfect chandelier is well proportioned with regard to the room’s interior. It is of the right diameter, and height, having the correct number of arms to make it a focal point of the roomwithout overcrowding it.

There are some simple formulas that can help you indetermining what height and diameter is the best in accordancewith the space available in your room. Higher ceilings may have low hung chandeliers, and chandeliers placed over tabletopsmay be significantly higher than usual to provide enough space between the table and the lighting fixture.

It is important to remember that the more arms the chandelier has, the more lighting it will provide. Thus, the number of arms that you find perfect for your particular space; are dependententirely on the amount of light you require within the room.


Colors bring highlights and dramatic effects into the room. Do you want your chandelier to blend with the interior of the room or are you looking for an impactful piece that will contrast the color scheme and stand out when you enter the room?

With regard to the color of your chandeliers, you also need to give high priority to the details and textures that are available, along with deciding how transparent or opaque you want yourlighting fixture to be. Modern interiors however, look best with brightly colored chandeliers and the most fashionable chandeliers are of transparent glass, opaque white and opaque black.

Other Important Factors

Aside from the above-mentioned top three factors, some other factors to consider when buying the perfect chandelier include the position of the chandelier within a room, the number of chandeliers to include in one room and so on.
