Some Different Kinds of Chandeliers

Have you ever wanted to purchase a beautiful chandelier for your room or house, but did not know what the right one to buy was? Well if this is the case, then this article is for you.The four types of chandeliers that we will be talking about today are glass chandeliers, crystal chandeliers, antler chandeliers and alabaster chandeliers.

Glass chandeliers are the first type of chandelier that we are going to be discussing today. These glass fixtures are usually more times than not just cheap knock offs of the real crystal chandeliers. The reason that these are so popular is because they give the illusion of being high end but having a mid class price. There is an exception to this rule however and it is Murano chandeliers. These are world famous glass hand blown chandeliers that are very expensive.

The next type of chandelier that we will be going over is the crystal chandelier. There are many different types of crystal chandeliers available but for the most part there is only one brand of crystal chandelier that is recognized as being the best, and it is the Waterford brand crystal. Waterford crystals have been manufactured since 1783 and have the same high quality that they did back then.

Antler chandeliers are our next subject in today’s discussion. Antler is a relatively new material that is being used in chandelier and light fixture construction. There are many different types of antlers that are being used. Some examples of the most popular ones are mule deer, white tail deer, elk, moose, and big horn ram. These types of chandeliers are more than likely going to be found in rustic style cabins and western influenced hunting lodges and mountain homes.

The last type of chandelier that we are going to be talking about is the alabaster type. Alabaster is a compact finely textured type of gypsum that is used worldwide for types of carving and chandelier lamp shades. The reason that alabaster made this list is because of its unique beauty when it is lit up by the chandelier lights. If you are looking for a chandelier with a touch of class but also holds some earthy tones then this is definitely the one for you.

Hopefully after reading this article you will have a little bit more insight about which type of chandelier that you want for your home. No matter which one you buy just remember to make sure that you are buying it for your enjoyment not the rest of the worlds.
