The evolution of the crystal chandelier

For centuries now, crystal chandeliers have been making lasting impressions. With time, they’ve adapted to modern trends and evolutions in design. Today, more than ever, people are looking to brighten and liven up their homes and their lives with beautiful design elements that create a peaceful refuge from the harried outside world.Below, we present some new products that boast impeccable pedigrees in an array of modern and traditional styles. And, since there are many criteria to consider before purchasing a crystal chandelier, we’ll also try to shed some light on them.


Choose with the type of room

Crystal chandeliers will become the focal point in almost any room in the house. If you need general lighting, a crystal chandelier or ceiling light may be just what you need. Select a chandelier whose height once installed will leave at least 7 feet of clearance below it. Most crystal chandeliers are adjustable since they’re suspended by a chain. If you install a chandelier over a dining room table, leave 30 to 36 inches of clearance between the top of the table and the bottom of the chandelier.If you're looking to light a specific area, you can choose from the many beautiful crystal wall, table and floor lamps available. With the thousands of twinkling lights  reflected from their crystals’ facets, these lamps are sure to liven up your room !


Consider the proportionality between the room and the chandelier

Always consider the size of the room when choosing a chandelier, as the size ratio between the two must be appropriate. Unfortunately, no official mathematical rule exists to determine this ratio precisely. However, there are a few helpful benchmarks you can rely on.Depending on the model and style, crystal chandeliers are designed vertically or horizontally. A chandelier’s height often relates to its overall scale. You also need to choose the right location for a crystal chandelier. For example, a multi-tier chandelier is perfect in an entrance hall that features a staircase; its brilliance will highlight the height and glamour of the staircase. At the other end of the spectrum, an entry with a standard ceiling height of 8 or 9 feet will be better served by a chandelier with one or two tiers. At any rate, you can always round out any room’s lighting scheme with a matching wall, table or floor lamp.


A timeless focal point

Some large prestigious chandeliers are very heavy. Make sure the ceiling where the chandelier will hang is built to support such a load. Keep in mind that a chandelier’s weight is not distributed at all but is concentrated at a single spot and point of support. Therefore, it’s a good idea to assess this criterion before getting started. To accommodate a crystal giant, it’s often necessary to reinforce the attic ceiling with a strategically placed, fixed support !
