Chandeliers Buying Guide

While chandeliers hang from a stem—just like pendant lights—they differ in one important respect: Chandeliers typically have two or more branches or arms with lights while pendants have only one.

Types of Chandeliers

Types of Chandeliers

Chandeliers differ in how they cast light and in their composition and materials. The differences provide plenty of chandelier lighting, style, and material choices, including downlight and uplight; compact/mini, candelabra or candle, and drum styles; and wrought iron, metal, crystal, glass, bead, wood, or other material. Here’s a quick introduction to the various types of chandeliers and some features you might find.

Downlight

Chandeliers can also be classified based on how they direct light. Downlight chandeliers use a shade or other element on the arms or branches to direct light downward, making them great for a small entryway or living space.

Uplight

The opposite of downlight chandeliers, uplight versions push illumination toward the ceiling. These fixtures provide a good option for large or soaring areas, including two-story entryways.

Compact/Mini

Chandeliers are typically known for their large, impressive scale, but newer versions come as small as 9 inches across. At that size, a chandelier perfectly fits spaces such as a laundry room.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

By their very nature, most chandeliers serve as focal points in their rooms, so care and consideration in picking the right one becomes extra important. Before you shop, measure your room and make note of a compatible color and design. Then review the range of chandelier choices as well as size, style, material and color, energy efficiency and controls, and upkeep and care.

Style

Your chandelier will likely immediately draw the eye, so choose a style to match the room’s design.

Size

Proportion and scale of a chandelier are of utmost importance when making your choice. A too-big light source dwarfs a room, while a too-small version gets lost in a soaring space.

Material and Color

Material and color of a chandelier work in concert to complement a room’s decor. Focus on picking a pattern or hue that works well as a showcase element.

Energy Efficiency and Controls

Chandeliers surprisingly offer varying levels of light if they come equipped with the right controls, including a dimmer. Make sure to check features before you buy.

Upkeep and Care

Because of their placement, many chandeliers are difficult to reach for regular upkeep and care. Think through how you will access the fixture to dust and clean it regularly as well as replace burned-out bulbs.
