Black Chandelier Lighting - Many of the old chandeliers were made of iron but could be very heavy, which wasn`t so much of a problem since houses were built with large central beams that could support the weight. The black iron look can also be imitated with bronze or brass that is weathered chemically, although it doesn`t look exactly the same. A chandelier made of iron can be very contemporary looking, even though it has it`s roots in antiquity. Another option is a chandelier made from black glass crystal. It won`t refract the light like a typical crystal chandelier but it can add a sleek modern look to a room.
The vintage and traditional type of chandeliers use candle lights or incandescent lights for illuminations and have yellow-tinted illumination, while modern chandeliers have fluorescent or LED light bulbs and give bright white luminescence. Lighting chandeliers with candle lights is not practically possible on an everyday basis, hence, modern chandeliers have electric bulbs that are designed to look like candle lights.
When choosing a chandelier for a particular room, you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance, if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long, you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus, the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However, you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low, you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear.
Type of lighting required: The kind of lighting that you need is also an important criterion to consider. Here are the various types of chandeliers used to bring about different kinds of lighting: Ambient Lighting: If you wish to achieve ambient (general) lighting, you should go in for a big one, which has plenty of bulbs and open lights. This will ensure that the chandelier provides light for the entire room.
