The use of chandelier lighting has come a long way. Chandeliers were used in medieval times around the fourteenth century and made out of wrought iron or wood. The places where you would see chandelier lighting back then were in churches, monasteries, and castles or homes of the elite. At that point in history, the light bulb had not been invented yet. Candles were used and placed on the chandelier’s arms for the effect of chandelier lighting.
Chandelier lighting evolved throughout the centuries as more craftsmen and designers put their spin on representing the period or region in which they lived. By the end of the eighteenth century, the chandeliers themselves became more detailed in design, and the use of lead crystal became popular. The addition of lead crystal gave chandelier lighting a rich, elegant, and aesthetically attractive choice of lighting.
Here are some of the benefits of chandelier lighting:
- Chandelier lighting adds elegance, class, and sophistication to a room. Plus, a chandelier brings a focal point of interest that catches the eye, making the space more inviting.
- Dispersed ambient illumination is gorgeous lighting, and that’s what chandelier lighting provides—all of the beauty and no harsh glare or shadows.
- Saves space. Since chandeliers are on the ceiling, they are out of the way, avoiding clutter and saving space on the floor or table.
- Adds property value. A beautiful home will always attract buyers; now, adding a chandelier that is seen as luxurious and functional will enhance the home’s overall appeal, thus increasing its value.
- Energy efficient. Today’s chandeliers use LED light bulbs which last a long time and use less energy which is a money saver.
- Today’s chandeliers can be customized to fit your unique needs. There are many sizes, finishes, and styles to choose from, and they will surely enhance any room, adding drama and style to your home.
