A chandelier is a branched decorative ceiling-mounted light fixture with two or more arms bearing lights. Chandeliers are often ornate, containing dozens of lamps and complex arrays of glass or crystal prisms to illuminate a room with refracted light.
Chandeliers were once a sign of the most elegant and expensive opulence, but nowadays a chandelier light fixture is an accessible home decoration.
Colorful chandeliers create drama in the kitchen. Teeny ones provide elegance to powder rooms. Even walk-in closets go upscale when lit with a small chandelier.
Chandeliers add twinkle to a boudoir. People are treating their bedroom suites as more luxurious personal spaces with elaborate bathroom areas, so it is not unreasonable to consider chandeliers there, either. The master bedroom of today is often a luxurious suite that includes an elaborate bathroom. Chandeliers can easily match the grandeur of these areas and are being used more often to create a glamorous space.
Chandeliers have also sized up to accommodate the soaring foyers and sweeping two-story spaces of larger homes.
Mini chandeliers, add a new sense of intimacy to small rooms and to corner spaces and alcoves of larger ones. These compact chandeliers are nine-12 inches in diameter to slip easily into tight spaces. For added impact, consider grouping them.
