Chandeliers are great choices not only to add to the dcor of the room, but to alter the way the room appears in terms of the height. For instance, if you have a very low ceiling, fix a chandelier that throws light upwards. This gives the feeling of a raised ceiling. Alternately, if you have a high ceiling, a chandelier that throws light downwards will visually reduce the height of the room, and give it a more cozy feel. When placing chandeliers above dining tables, ensure that they are at least 30" above the surface of the table.
It has been found that lighting is one of the most overlooked aspects of home dcor. Why? Because it is used mainly for functional purposes, and even then, not appropriately in most cases. We don't realize that we have been working in bad light unless we find ourselves in a zone with better light while doing the same task. And lighting is not just about function; it aids aestheticism, and in this regard, the fixture plays a critical role. It can become the focal point of a room, it can be used to adorn lone spots in large rooms, it can bring a dim hallway to life, and it can make a pillar that is overlooked, the center of attention. So, how do you go about buying the right fixture?
Put your pendant lamps on dimmers and get all types of lighting, i.e., task, ambient, and accent, from that one fixture.
Through the ages man has been fascinated by fire since its discovery. Man attempted to harness the power of flame to provide both heat and light. As knowledge about fire evolved, fire became portable. Used to light the interior of caves and dark natural passageways in dense woods, portable fire was both dangerous and unpredictable.
