Guide to Choosing the Perfect Chandelier

crystal chandeliersIf you are wondering if a crystal chandelier is right for your style, keep in mind that there are all kinds of chandeliers from which you can choose from companies that make lighting and chandeliers their special attraction, such as Kingdom Lighting.

What Are Some Things You Might Consider When Thinking About Buying a Chandelier?

Assess your room’s style, from floor to ceiling—right about the spot where you will hang your ceiling, actually—to determine a few different factors.

  • What type of lighting does the room already feature? Is there good natural light or is there already ceiling lighting already in place?
  • What is the rest of the room’s decor?
  • Are you lighting a dining room, living room or a foyer?

Choosing the Right Chandelier for Any Room

The beauty of modern chandeliers is that they come in so many styles, sizes and shapes, so there is something to fit your space. It is simply a matter of looking at the room with a critical and informed stylistic eye before making your choice.

Chandeliers come in many forms, such as pendents or waterfall styles in a shimmering array of stylized crystal suspended fixtures. Explore shapes in waterfalls, bagels and many other contours to appeal to your preference. You will love the way the light plays in the room as it cascades out of your new chandelier.

How to Clean Your Crystal Chandelier

The holidays are the time for entertaining. Your family may have come over for Thanksgiving dinner and in a blink of an eye your home will be full again for Christmas or Hanukkah. So even though you probably have your hands full buying presents, planning meals, and wrangling your family together, if you have some down time, this is also a good time to clean your crystal chandeliers so they look perfect for the holiday season.

Luckily, cleaning a new chandelier is a relatively painless process. There are specialty spray-on cleaners made specifically for chandeliers that you can buy  from the hardware store. Otherwise, you can simply clean the chandelier with some soapy water. Either way, make sure you disconnect the power from the chandelier and lay down some towels beneath the light to catch any drips (or soften the blow should a glass bead fall).

With either the spray-on cleaner or soapy water, simply wipe the chandelier down with a soft cloth. Make sure you go all the way around the chandelier arms and reach all sides of the crystals. Wipe the chandelier dry when you’re finished to prevent streaks. Now you’ll have a glistening, gleaming chandelier that looks like new for the holiday season.
