Installing a vintage chandelier to a room or space can be a great way to add a touch of class and a lot of interest. A chandelier is one of the ultimate symbols of elegance and grandeur and they can be installed in almost any room in your house.
When deciding on which chandelier to put in your home, the first thing you should consider is size. Consider how much space will the dangling light fixture take up and if there will be enough space for the piece to be admired. The most common places for chandeliers are entryways and dining rooms, but recent trends has smaller decorative hanging lights in bedrooms, bathrooms and even kitchens.
Next you should consider how much light you want your vintage chandelier to give off. Many times a chandelier isn’t used as the primary source of light. It is typically recommended to use bulbs at 200 – 400 watts to get the right amount of light.
