A good interior designer can help you pick out a beautiful chandelier for your home.

 Chandeliers now come in all sizes and shapes, as well as different materials.  Who doesn't like to see a light, etheral glowing from overhead?

     There are wrought iron and bronze chandeliers.  There are crystal, modern and antique chandeliers.  There are chandeliers shaped like star pendants and those shaped like coral.

     Chandeliers used to be only in dining rooms and entryways but now they are being used in great rooms as well as bedrooms.  You can even install a chandelier in a kitchen or bathroom.

     Size is important when picking out a chandelier.  It is important to get a chandelier that is not going to overwhelm a space.  

     In a dining room you should choose a chandelier that has a diameter that is half of the diameter of the tabletop. The height depends on the height of the room.  However, sometimes breaking the rules makes it look better.  Always be careful that the chandelier is hung at a height so no ones  gets a bumped head.  

     In a child's bedroom a mini chandelier can really add interest.  There are chandeliers for both boys and girls bedrooms with the girls chandeliers being more delicate and the boys chandeliers are usually based on boats, planes or sports.

     If you have a more formal master bedroom, a chandelier is a nice touch. Again, it has to be just the right size and in the right space.

     If you have a new home and are making the lighting selections, be sure to pay extra attention to the chandeliers needed.  It is very important to find one for the foyer that expresses your unique style and that of your home.
