Enlightened Art – Chandeliers for Every Style
March 3rd, 2016 | by Michelle
Chandeliers aren’t just for dining rooms anymore. Incorporating a stunning chandelier is an opportunity to have a floating piece of art that does far more than illuminate a room.
Whether you’re preparing your home for the market or searching for a new place to call home, keep these tips in mind when deciding what lighting works best:
Grouping of bright pendants
Go bold – You can bring a big, bold chandelier into a small room if you choose the right one. All-glass or thin-frame metal chandeliers are striking without taking up a lot of visual space.
Mix styles – A chandelier doesn’t have to match the style of your home. If traditional, try a simple metal chandelier with just a few crystals. On the flip side, if contemporary, an ornate fixture with traditional details is a great counterpart.

Cubes of glass
Pick one metal family – A shiny brass chandelier would look great with bronze or gold-trimmed elements. While a nickel or pewter chandelier pairs best with silver curtain rods.
