Hanging a chandelier in your home is an opportunity to display an extravagant art piece - and they aren't just for dining rooms anymore! Bedrooms, bathrooms and even walk-in closets are unexpected and fun places to showcase these brilliant beauties. Contemporary chandeliers go far beyond crystals and candleholders. Many designs now feature a variety of metals, rustic features, are made completely of glass, and have striking, defined art-deco features with avantgarde embellishments.
Follow the below tips to choose the right modern chandelier for your home.
1. Contemporary chandeliers do not have to be hung in a modern home. Juxtapose a stately Victorian home with a colorful metal or re-purposed fixture for a unique affect.
2. Choose the same elements for the chandelier if the surrounding space is furnished in a particular metal or color, such as silver or pewter accents.
3. Add recessed lighting in key areas to avoid relying on a chandelier as the primary source of light in a room.
4. Be sure the size of your chandelier is proportionate to the size of your room. As an example, if your room is 12 feet by 12 feet, you should look for a chandelier with a diameter of at least 24 inches.
5. Measure carefully if you are hanging your chandelier in an area other than over a table for the proper height clearance.
