You may think of a chandelier as being quite similar to a pendant lamp, but they are typically a bit larger and more elaborate in design. They often have a round appearance with multiple lights in a circular formation. Many have candle-shaped bulbs to mimic old-fashioned styles of candelabra chandeliers.
Grand or Modern
Chandeliers are known for being quite grand and luxurious, but there are actually hanging chandeliers available in multiple styles. Modern chandeliers may have a more minimalist appearance. Either way, chandeliers can have anywhere from three to eight or more bulbs to brighten your space. With the flick of a switch, you can add light from above to make your room more special.
Chandelier Size Options & Materials
There are many different sizes of chandeliers available. They often hang from a chain. In that case, the size may be adjustable. Chandeliers are traditionally made at least partially of metal, but if they have a lampshade, they can also have glass or fabric components. Luckily we don't use real candles with chandeliers anymore, because that can pose a fire hazard. With modern light bulbs, chandeliers are both beautiful and safe for any space.
