Focal point of the dining room: Chandeliers that are the main attraction of the dining room will never go out of style. Often times an antique fixture in a modern dining room, or a red chandelier in a predominantly white room will give you added visual appeal. Chandeliers can be the centerpiece of discussion at the table or they can be subdued and blend in beautifully with the surroundings.
Be original: Remember when chandeliers used to be comprised of 1000 pieces of lead crystal and they usually cost enough to furnish your entire house? Today chandeliers have come a long way. They no longer have to made of crystal and beads. Nontraditional chandeliers can range from vintage glass bottles to sea shells! If you love crafts you can make your own from a light kit and your imagination. Your local arts and crafts or larger lighting stores will carry do-it-yourself light kits and have ideas for decorating it.
