How to Choose a Modern Chandelier
When you buy a chandelier for your interior, you’re making a statement.
You’re providing a timeless centrepiece to your room, setting the mood and influencing the success of your entire design scheme.
For this reason, you should take as much time as possible when selecting the right luxury lighting fixture for your room and ensure that it fits effortlessly into your design scheme, enhances the dimensions and ‘feel’ of the room, and provides the right level of light for your needs.
Here are five steps that can help you choose the right one for you.
Step 1: Calculate your space
Whether you have a large banquet hall or a smaller living room space, you can rest assured that there will be a perfect chandelier design for your needs.
Measure your available space first and ensure that the chandelier of your choice works well for these dimensions. Remember to consider ceiling height when you make these calculations so you can find a chandelier that works best for you.

Step 2: Think about your design theme
The chandelier you choose should do more than simply match your interior design scheme. It should also unify your design vision, highlight the most elegant elements and add those finishing touches as well as being highly functional.
Would you prefer a modern chandelier design or something more traditional? What about contemporary, industrial, rustic or farmhouse?
Step 3: Consider materials and finish
Next you should determine which material(s) and finish will work best for your unique design scheme. The main trends for 2019 include soft gold and brass, but you might prefer to incorporate bronze, chrome, silver or even iron.
Consider how the elements will blend with the room and make sure that your selection also coordinates with other light fittings.
Step 4: Think about chandelier function
When you’re buying your chandelier, you should also consider what lighting function you
want it to achieve.
For example, would you prefer an uplight or downlight chandelier? How about ambient lighting? Always ensure that you’re enhancing the rest of the room and not detracting from it.
Step 5: Consider which chandelier shape you’d prefer
