What is a chandelier?

A chandelier (also known as suspended lights) is a branched, decorative light fixture that is mounted on a ceiling. The word ‘Chandelier’ is old French translating to ‘candle holder’.

As they strive to become more common amongst households, chandeliers have been designed to adapt to your home through different designs and styles.

Chandeliers are considered the perfect jewels for your home. They add a much-needed touch of elegance to your space, making them the most demanded furniture piece.

Selecting the perfect type of chandelier is essential as it will be adding the required sense of beauty to your home. Let’s take a look at the different styles you can find.

1. Modern Chandeliers

Modern chandeliers serve the great purpose of being both aesthetically pleasing as well as fully functional. Modern chandeliers might just be your pick if you are inclining more towards a futuristic, avant-garde look.

Using these in the living room or the entranceway can highlight its beauty, but avoid them in your kitchen and bedrooms.

2. Victorian Chandeliers

Embodying the Victorian style that was popular during the supremacy of England’s  Queen Victoria, modern recreations are created for these Victorian-styled chandeliers. They are known for being over-the-top with their design incorporating glass, crystal, and beads.

3. Contemporary Chandeliers

Minimalistic and innovative designed homes are more suited for these contemporary chandeliers. Reimagining the classic chandelier designs, this kind of chandelier produces progressive designs that make them different from other styles.

It might be challenging to find a room that suits the vibes of these chandeliers, but once you do, it will fit the space’s mood perfectly.

4. Bohemian Chandeliers

Dressed in elegance and beauty, the bohemian chandeliers add beautiful lighting to your space. Embraced with a classic-glass arm, they are competent to reflect the maximum amount of light.

The crystal glass structure it is made of enhances your room’s lighting. They are preferably installed in the living room.
