Skillful combinations of light and various other elements, chandeliers, luster, pending light found their way into homes only gradually and because people wanted to give their houses a fancy, elegant look and also needed better lighting. Chandeliers are now a common light fixture in homes and other places. Their importance in lighting and the importance of lighting in interior design is undeniable. Besides their decorative quality, chandeliers have advantages that simple light bulbs lack. One advantage is the distribution of light in all directions and evenly; regular light bulbs can’t do this, and because they distribute light in an uncontrolled way, they can cause eye strain over time.

History of chandeliers

Chandelier, both as décor elements and as the unquestionable representatives of light fixtures, originated in the 15th century. At that time, chandeliers were made of wood, and used candles instead of modern light bulbs. Italy, France, England, and the Netherlands were among the first countries to use chandeliers to demonstrate glory and wealth. chandeliers, especially large chandeliers, were historically associated with those qualities. Chandelier candles gave way to lamps powered by sewer gases; later, as science advanced and electricity was discovered, they were replaced by electric lamps.

Here are some of the earliest types of chandeliers:

Flanders chandeliers of the Netherlands

The first chandeliers to be made of brass instead of wood, hence the name Flanders. They consisted of a large brass spherical body and a set of smaller brass balls as the bases of their arms. The higher reflectivity and malleability of brass as compared to other metals made the chandeliers immensely popular with Europeans.

Rock crystal chandeliers of France

As glass production developed, French innovators introduced rock crystals into chandeliers. Resembling diamonds, rock crystals are transparent quartz and, therefore, highly reflective, which made them quite popular at the time.

Glass chandeliers of England

One of the first countries to produce chandeliers, England revolutionized the craft of chandelier-making by introducing glass chandeliers. Made mainly of lead glass, these chandeliers were extremely bright and reflective, as the type of glass was high in lead monoxide.

Chandelier buying guide

You should choose a chandelier based on the size of the space you intend it for. Here are a few things to consider when buying chandeliers:

Space size in choosing pending light and chandelier

It’s essential to take space size into account, so that the chandelier you choose isn’t so big that it’s off-putting, nor is it so small that it’s hard to notice. Also, some rooms are so spacious that they require more than one chandelier.

Ceiling height in choosing pending light and chandelier

Ceiling height determines how far from the ceiling and the floor a chandelier should hang.

Space function in choosing pending light and chandelier

Spaces such as living rooms and reception halls require brighter chandeliers; on the other hand, modern-style chandeliers with fewer, dim lights are suitable for spaces like bedrooms.

Decor considerations in choosing pending light and chandelier

It’s important to also see whether the intended space has a modern or a classic interior design. It’s recommended to use chandeliers with simpler designs in modern-style décors, which are highly popular these days. Modern-style chandeliers are also a good fit for outdoor spaces, which require simplicity in their décor.
