Chandeliers, derived from Candela, meaning candle in Latin, have a been around since the middle ages. Since the world was first introduced to them in the 14th-15th century, Chandeliers have been a symbol of luxury and wealth and considered a classic look. However, times have changed and they have made their way to modern homes complementing their contemporary look with a little chic.

When choosing a chandelier, it is important to consider that it complements the aesthetics and décor of the room and it’s not just a source of lighting. For example, a chandelier that is too large might not be pleasing to the eye, if it’s too small it might not have an impact on the space. A chandelier is a centerpiece, and although serves a purpose of illuminating it should also be considered a statement piece.
However, the lighting function is an important feature that needs to be considered as well. Overhanging or pendant designs are the most popular choice as these provide adequate illumination, are compact and can fit in almost all spaces. The compact design of these small yet impressive fixtures has enabled interior decorators to use these pieces to complement home décor without making it overwhelm a small space. We understand that some chandeliers are designed for decorative purposes only and do not serve as a source of light. In this case, a secondary light source would be needed to illuminate a room. Another important factor to consider is the weight of the chandelier. The ceiling should be set up with extra support to handle the weight.
Chandeliers have become highly popular with millennials and other generations because of the wide variety of designs to choose from and because of the style and elegance, they add to a space.
