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.
Location is everything. Chandeliers and pendants have gone mainstream and can be found all over the house. Every room is a blank canvas, just waiting for the right lighting fixture.

Try hanging two pendants hanging together over a breakfast buffet, a flea market style chandelier child’s playroom, mini chandeliers over bedside tables, a sassy chandelier to spice up the bathroom.
