Do you know how to make a crystal chandelier? It is not easy if you are not a handy person. However, you try to create your own chandelier at home by getting the help from family and friends. It can be a great work, which improves the bond between the members of the family. A crystal chandelier is considered as an elegant piece for decorating the bedroom, living room, kitchen or even bathroom. Whether you have a traditional or modern home design, a crystal chandelier always fits well. If you are interested with modern look, choose the simple and minimalist chandelier design. The ornate one is perfect for decorating traditional home design.
Decide the height of the chandelier
It will be a wrong idea to make a big and grandeur crystal chandelier if you only live in a small floor plan. Keep it minimalist and simple so that the chandelier will never overpower the room. It gives a less crowded effect inside a small home. Therefore, the comfort will be maintained. To decide the suitable height for the chandelier, you can measure the distance between the ceiling and coffee table.
Decide the design of the chandelier
Let us find out the design for the chandelier. It will affect the selection of the material when you want to make a crystal chandelier. The ornate one will need more crystals and beads. If you choose the sleek and cute design, the crystal decoration is used as the accent. Since the chandelier is installed for both decorative and functional purposes, the design should be carefully selected according to the current home decor.
Decide the metal frame
The metal frame is sturdy enough to hold the crystal, beads and bulb. You can select a one tiered or three-tiered design. The latter one is perfect for decorating a medium sized living room or bedroom. If you have a very large home with open space floor plan, a five-tiered chandelier is excellent. The bottom part of the metal frame look enchanting with dangling white beads or silver broken glasses.
