How to choose the right beautiful and modern chandelier, which will give the apartment an exquisite and sophisticated look?
First of all, the height of the ceiling is taken into account. If the ceiling is low, then you can not hang a classic chandelier on the suspension, and if the ceiling is high, then it will be ridiculous on it will look like a chandelier adjacent to the ceiling. So, there are two types of chandeliers: suspended or classic, which are located at a distance from the ceiling and those that are attached directly under the ceiling – ceiling.
The most important characteristic of any chandelier is its power. The power of the chandelier is the sum of all capacities of the lamps screwed into it. If the chandelier is purchased for the living room or hall, then here the recommended capacity is 150-300 W; If in the bedroom, then it does not require bright lighting and you can purchase a chandelier with a capacity of 60-120 W; And if the chandelier is purchased into the kitchen, then it should be 120-150 W with a power.
It should be remembered that not all lamps are suitable for the chandelier. This means that before purchasing a chandelier, it is necessary to check what basements in the lamps screwing into the chandelier. It will be very disappointing if when buying a very beautiful chandelier, the lamps for it will be sold in another city or for a fabulously large amount. It should also be remembered that you should not screw the lamps of greater power into the chandelier with a certain power. This can lead to ordinary fire or melting of its individual parts.
And now we approach the most important question: how to choose a chandelier for a certain room?
The chandelier should “suit” the premises for which it is bought, it should be in the same color scheme as the room, and, of course, be a certain size, there should also be such a base that will be suitable for standard lamps. But most importantly, it should be reliable.
For the living room, a large suspension chandelier is suitable for 5-6 bulbs to brightly illuminate the entire room. But, at the same time, do not forget about comfort and intimacy and make a switch that will turn on only a few lamps.
The chandelier tightly adjacent to the ceiling will fit perfectly into the kitchen, also with several lamps and the same switch.
Well, for the bedroom, a chandelier that can be adjusted, which will make it possible to light a certain zone in the bedroom, is suitable.
But in any case, you should remember that this chandelier should like it exactly.
