For a lighting solution that is both ornate and practical, crystal chandeliers are a great option to consider. A crystal chandelier can add a tone of elegance and class to any home, residence, or business that is suited for such a bold look. Crystal chandeliers come in a wide range of different sizes, prices, and other variations, and for this reason it is advised that consumers do a fair amount of shopping around before actually selecting a crystal chandelier. Regardless of whether your space is extremely large, or relatively small, there are different sizes and scales of crystal chandeliers to fit any home and any space. If money is no object, there are some crystal chandelier models that can cost thousands of dollars depending on what kind of model a client wishes to purchase. While there are extremely expensive chandelier models, there are also much more affordable ones ranging in the one hundred to two hundred dollar range that still capture the essence of what a crystal chandelier should look like, without being too cheap. For the benefit of consumers interested in purchasing or learning more about chandeliers made out of crystal, some additional information will now be introduced and discussed.
Different Shapes of Crystal Chandeliers
When seeking to purchase a crystal chandelier, there are many different shapes that can be acquired. Some of these chandeliers are more elongated, creating a look that is much taller and stretched out for spaces that perhaps have especially high ceilings. On the other end of the spectrum, there are crystal chandeliers that are significantly more compact and almost rounded in their appearance. This shape is much more conducive to somewhat smaller spaces, which are better served by this kind of shorter design.
Number of Lamps
The number of lamps on a given model of crystal chandelier is an important detail to be aware of, since this number will have a bearing on how much light can be projected by a chandelier model. For spaces where a dimmer light is desired, a crystal chandelier model with a relatively low number of lamps is typically going to be preferable since the amount of light it can project will reflect how many bulbs the chandelier can accommodate. Obviously this also applies to spaces where a lot of light is needed; in this case, a chandelier with a relatively high number of bulbs should be used.
Different Styles Available
In the realm of crystal chandeliers, there are a lot of different basic styles that can be chosen. Some of these include rustic designs, more classically inspired designs, understated and more low profile designs, and other basic characterizations such as bronze designs or white silver designs. Depending on the style selected for a crystal chandelier, the pricing is likely to fluctuate very widely given the disparity between material costs. For example, white silver is a much more expensive material than bronze, and for this reason crystal chandeliers made of white silver will be considerably more costly to reflect the material value.
