Light is the most important thing in every household. The light bulb or lampshade can make or break the interior design scheme. Used properly, it can become a work of art in itself. To meet this very need, the markets are flooded with countless design options for lighting fixtures. The lighting solutions range from wall-mounted lamps, lamps, accent lights to ceiling lamps and chandeliers. Of these, the chandeliers are the preferred ones to make an impressive style statement.
Where to use the chandeliers
In the beginning, the chandeliers were limited to the foyer to create a good first impression. Eventually, the chandelier heated it into all parts of the house and even reached the bathroom and walk-in closet. It became a necessity in the kitchen and bathroom. In the living room, it graduated from being the centerpiece to a show that stops the ornamentation of a design alcove or a corner of the room.
In recent years, it also began to become more and more decorated with different lamp styles. The types of lamps used ranged from very simple to exquisitely ornate. The chandeliers add drama and charisma to any room. The design ranges from the simple minimalist to the most flamboyant, from traditional to contemporary and sometimes a surprisingly striking mix of styles. Soon it became necessary to provide shades in accordance with the lamps. With the help of shades, the lighting can be designed to be illumination, downlighting or ambient lighting, to suit the utilitarian purpose together with the aesthetic purpose.
In general, chandeliers have shades that direct light upwards and provide ambient lighting as the light is reflected from the ceiling and diffused during the process to cast a soft ambient glow. Alternatively, the chandelier can be made to provide focused lighting in a specific area by turning the shades down. Again, the direction of the shadow is not the only decisive factor for the light quality. Features such as size, shape, width and opacity make a significant difference to light quality. Depending on the desired brightness, you can choose a wide or narrow, large or small, transparent or translucent shade. The shades can be ordinary, colored, simple or creatively shaped.
Lamps for chandeliers are available in different materials. The materials used include metals brass, bronze, chromed metal, steel, wrought iron, etc. They also come in glass beads and expensive crystals such as Swarovski crystals. There are nautical chandeliers made of wood, capiz or oyster shells and even chandeliers with twigs, deer horns or iron.
