Chandeliers provide with an opportunity to make a dramatic statement in a space. Chandeliers are lighting fixtures that have more than one arm with lights and are usually of larger size than most of other lighting fixtures.
In most cases you do not want the chandelier to be the main source of light in the room.
There are many aspects of design to think about when planning to furnish with a chandelier such as size, style, light output, scale, materials, weight, and more.One important tip to remember and a mistake to avoid, is that in most cases you do not want the chandelier to be the main source of light in the room. By allowing for other sources of light and layering the lighting effects, you will have the option to dim down the chandelier and therefore avoid unnecessary glare resulting in a warmer atmosphere and higher visual comfort. This is especially important if the chandelier holds exposed light bulbs. It is also important to keep the chandelier size to a reasonable scale with relation to the space it is to be in and the furniture. We recommend that you first draw the room to scale, for example, 1/4 inch= 1 Foot, then draw the location and size of the furniture. Finally draw in the chandelier you're considering to see how it fits relative to the other elements previously mentioned.
