Nothing adds drama to a space quite like a chandelier. Though their main role is to provide ambient lighting, chandeliers can also act as a statement piece in a home. Our expert guide to chandeliers will help you understand the basic differences between sizes, shapes and styles. Find the best chandelier for your home that represents your personal style and taste.

Mini Chandeliers

Mini chandeliers have gained popularity in the past couple of years and can make a big statement without taking up much space. They can be any style of chandelier that comes in a smaller size and are ideal for compact spaces like bedrooms, nurseries, bathrooms and closets.

Tiered Chandeliers

With a strong and commanding presence, tiered chandeliers are fit for those individuals who wish to make an impression in their home. A two-tier chandelier can add elegance to a dining room, whereas a three-, four- or five-tier chandelier works well for a grand entryway.

Crystal Chandeliers

Precious metals and elegant lines have made crystal chandeliers popular since the 18th-century. Their jewel-like touches are made from cut glass and crystal prisms, which reflects and refracts light. Use a large crystal chandelier in your foyer as a statement piece to add drama and richness that will impress friends and family.

Drum Chandeliers

Drum chandeliers are simple, but elegant and often feature crisp fabric shades with a clean chrome or nickel finish. This type of chandelier is the perfect piece to add focus to a section of a room and can also help provide warm lighting in small areas of your home.

Transitional Chandeliers

Transitional chandeliers bridge traditional and contemporary styles by combining different metal finishes, shades and candlestick-inspired fixtures. Whether you choose a more classic or modern style, transitional chandeliers can act as signature pieces that will elevate the look of your home.

Rustic Chandeliers

Blending iron and wood finishes, rustic chandeliers tend to feature clean, modern silhouettes while retaining all the drama of a classic metal-and-crystal piece. Their natural lines and simple materials bring true character to your home and can make great addition to entry and foyer areas.

Contemporary Chandeliers

Inspired by elements of mid-century design, contemporary chandeliers are defined by their clean lines and sleek designs. They have very little detailing with futuristic shapes and designs. This contemporary style provides multiple ways to make a luxurious modern statement in your home.
