How to Select the Perfect Dining Room Chandelier
So, you’re ready to buy a chandelier for your dining room. With 1000s of chandeliers to choose from, how do you know which one is right?
There are a few steps to finding the perfect chandelier for your dining room.
Before you even start looking, decide on a style. Are you going for a more contemporary look? Possibly traditional? Somewhere in-between?
Crystal chandeliers tend to be more traditional, while those made of chrome and glass will create a more modern vibe. Do you like the industrial look? Try a chandelier made of iron. These material suggestions aren’t rules written in stone, there are always exceptions!
Think your decision through and make sure you really like the chandelier – it’s an extension of your style and lighting is an important detail in your design.
