Things to consider while purchasing chandeliers—
Buying a chandelier can be tricky. It is hard to choose right chandelier due to huge variety that is available in the market. Please keep in mind a few things before making the final decision.
Purpose- One has to consider the purpose for buying the chandelier. If it is solely for light, then it is better to get a medium sized chandelier with minimal décor elements. Keeping in tune with the rest of the décor, one can opt for a cut glass chandelier.
