Traditional Lighting

Traditional Lighting

There is so much lighting on the market to choose from, sometimes it can be overwhelming. The main and major choice is to choose between traditional or contemporary lighting. Once that decision has been made, it will make many other decisions easier – there will still be multiple decisions to make, but they won’t be as hard because you will have already narrowed your choices down majorly.

So, what are the differences between contemporary and traditional chandeliers and why is this choice so important? The style of chandelier you choose is essential because it can make or break the rest of your room. It is absolutely essential that you choose a fixture that compliments the room. Classical chandeliers work well in antique rooms that might feature a lot of wood and large paintings. This would reflect that of a stately home with a vintage feel. In a similar way, contemporary chandeliers would complement white, light and modern rooms with a more minimal feel. Another difference between the two types of chandeliers are what they are made of; traditional ones are usually made from brass; gold and classical materials, whereas contemporary chandeliers can be made from a number of different materials such as chrome, rubbed bronze or wrought iron.
