Visit a lot of shops before you make the final buying
Sometimes we choose to buy the first thing we see, and there are so many time we were wrong with the choices when we entered a new shop and we see a better version of the item we were buying. In order to avoid such a thing when buying a chandelier we advise you to go shopping a little longer and visit more shops, that way finding the one that best fits your space, your wishes and the budget. You may get some information searching on website related with home decorating. You are not buying a chandelier every day, so take care when you do it, to be the best possible choice.
Select the correct size
This is the most important rule to follow. You can’t buy a big chandelier for a small space, because that way you will make your room looks cramped by a chandelier. You can’t either buy a small one for a spacious room because it will look lost in the whole space. So, when choosing the correct chandelier, follow the rule that says “big chandeliers go with big rooms, and small chandeliers go with big rooms” and you won’t be wrong. One way to count the right chandelier size is this mathematics rule: the diameter of the chandelier should be a little lesser that the width of the room.
Match the chandelier with the home décor, the colors and the materials
If you are decorating an empty no furnished room take care to buy furniture and chandeliers that are matching that way creating a whole from the space. Choose materials and colors that fir each other. Use chandelier made of materials that some of the furniture is made of. Take care the walls to be in same color or one to two shades lighter than the chandelier. This way you will create a matching ambience that will make your space look comfortable and beautiful. If you are buying a chandelier for an already furnished room you are more limited in the choices because you must adjust it to the materials and colors that are already presented in the room.
