How Chandeliers Bring Sophisticated Style to Your Dining Room
Chandeliers have class-it's as simple as that. Chandeliers are the focal point of any room. When you bring guests into your dining room, a stylish chandelier will certainly make a great impression. They transform even the plainest dining rooms into a formal space. Chandeliers provide a room with a unique form of elegance and style that nothing else can provide. If you're trying to add unique style to your dining room, a chandelier is a must. A chandelier will transform your space from boring to sophisticated-and everyone wants to be sophisticated right?
Practical and decorative:
It's equally important to light your dining room properly as it is to decorate the space. So, knock two birds out with one stone! Having the dining room chandelier float above your table will provide the perfect amount of light for gathering around the table, as well as beautify the room. Freshome had some good tips for lighting. If your room already has natural light, try using a chandelier that is more of an art piece. Chandeliers with candles as the light source are a popular choice. However, some rooms need a chandelier to light up the table. In this case, make sure chandelier shines adequate bright and direct light.
Instead of following a trend-set a trend! There are no set "chandelier rules". Make your own. Any chandelier can bring your room together. Some people think that crystal chandeliers are the only "elegant" option for your dining room; but what's the fun in that? Be creative. Try using a chandelier kit to construct your own fixture. Do you like wine? Try making your own chandelier out of hanging wine bottles. Make a unique creation from branches you found on your last hike. Finally you can have a use for all those seashells you collected last time you were on the beach. There are endless options-the only limit is your imagination. Find a chandelier that coincides with your family's personality and interests.
Bold or Subtle?
A chandelier can either stand out against everything else in the room, or it can blend in beautifully with the rest of the space. Go bold if you want it to truly be the center piece; but if you want it to be a simpler addition to the room, blend it in. Either option will add elegance to your room. However, you must decide whether boldly standing out, or subtly blending in is right for your home. But don't worry-either option will work. There's no wrong answer.
Bring the Room Together
It's so tough to decide on chandelier style. The right chandelier will surely bring your room together. However, having a chandelier that doesn't match the style of your home will end up looking awkward. Some different styles of chandeliers include the following:
