When it comes to choosing lighting for your home, you’re literally spoilt for choice. However, nothing screams class and elegance more than a well-placed chandelier. Whether you’re looking for a new focal point for your grand entranceway or you just want to add some panache with a couple of smaller chandeliers, there’s a chandelier out there to suit your home. Check out our tips on how to get the right chandelier for you!
Know Your Budget
Before you start chandelier shopping, you need to establish a budget. There’s nothing worse than getting your heart set on a large crystal chandelier, only to find out you can’t afford it. Setting a budget will help narrow your search and make the chandelier hunt a whole lot easier.
Space & Placement
The size of your chandelier will have a big impact on its overall look and feel. Bigger chandeliers tend to dominate the room as a focal point, whereas smaller chandeliers will just add a touch of class. You need to work out where you want to hang your chandelier and how much room you have from the ceiling to the floor. Chandeliers shouldn’t become a distraction or get in the way.

Know Your Theme
Just like any other piece of interior décor, you’ll want the style of your chandelier to complement your overall theme. Size, materials and type of chandelier will all impact how well it matches its surroundings. There are a variety of chandeliers to match all design styles—from modern and traditional to eclectic, opulent and more! Talk to your local Wyong interior design expert about finding the right chandelier for your home.
When it comes to cleaning, chandeliers can cause headaches. Larger, more intricate tiered, traditional and crystal chandeliers will accumulate dust rather quickly. So, if you’re not up for all the extra housework, you should pick a different style (simpler, smaller designs are a lot easier to maintain).
Get A Warranty
It’s vital you talk to your local Wyong lighting and accessories expert about a warranty, before you purchase a chandelier. Chandeliers are expensive and the last thing you need is part of it to crack or the wiring to become faulty. Some warranties may even allow you to try the chandelier in your home and return it if you aren’t happy with the look. Always get a builder to check the strength of your ceiling before installing a chandelier.
