Rustic Lodge Chandeliers add such a charming country flair to your home. Whether you’re decorating your old farmhouse, country home, or rustic cabin, these rustic lodge chandeliers will look fantastic in your space. Choosing the perfect rustic chandelier has never been easier; read on for our quick buyer’s guide.
Home decór is very personable, so there are no right or wrong selections. However, there are some options you should be aware of that will help you choose a rustic chandelier that is perfect for you and your home.
Chandeliers are an ideal piece of home decor to push your style’s boldest boundaries. They are one of the first objects you’ll notice in a room; they take up a good piece of real estate, but they’re also out of the way and less noticeable after making your entrance into the room. Because of this, it is the perfect piece to get a little wild with artistically speaking, and perhaps splurge for the right piece.
What’s your style? Rustic country? Start by searching for rustic wood chandeliers. Are you feeling like a fun blend of country chic? Rustic chandeliers with crystals may be right up your alley. What about sharp, sophisticated country homes? Try looking for modern rustic chandeliers.
When searching for the chandelier of your dreams, keep the desired mood of your home in mind. What kind of aesthetic and, therefore, lighting are you going for?
Check out rustic round chandeliers with white LED bulbs if you want a bright, white, modern, and luxurious clean look.
If you want a dark, moody, and romantically lit chandelier, find something with low lumens that produces an inviting, soft, and yellow glow. You can also go for a chandelier with shades or some dramatic light bulb obstructions. Low lumen (watt) bulbs will produce warm, subdued, early morning or late evening light; higher lumen (watt) bulbs produce whiter, brighter, middle of the daytime light. The most common bulb styles are incandescent, LED, halogen, and fluorescent. Each bulb serves different purposes for multiple functions and aesthetic styles.
Also, if your chandelier will be hung in a high-up, difficult to access location, consider purchasing higher quality light bulbs that can last for years or even decades without replacement. Now there’s no need to lug your giant bulky ladder out of the garage every year.
Light bulbs have changed quite a bit in recent decades. Now it is entirely possible to change your bulb’s color, color-changing frequencies, bulb brightness, and dimmer capabilities. Think about these aspects as you search.
Keep the bulb base size at the back of your mind while browsing. You will need to find similar or exact versions of the lightbulb that fits your new chandelier.
If it’s difficult for you to locate that particular bulb in your area, consider moving to a different chandelier for your home. When browsing for chandeliers, pay attention to the sizes. Rustic foyer chandeliers will likely need to be significantly larger than rustic bedroom chandeliers. Typically, the larger the room, the larger your chandelier should be. With that said, some homeowners spring for chandeliers that seem a bit large for their space, but that just adds to the drama and stunning visual effects.
Different finishes and colors tailor to different home styles and aesthetics. If you’re unsure of which finish or color you want for your chandelier, look around inside the room where you wish to place it.
You can match your chandelier’s finish to other existing finishes in the room. You can also match exact shades in the room, such as wall paint, couch color, accents, or art. You can find complementary colors of the same color but not the exact shade as paint, furniture, accents, or art in your home.
Or you can get bold and find a chandelier in a contrasting color opposite of your room’s color scheme on the color wheel.
While hanging your new rustic chandelier is not necessarily difficult, it requires some electrical wiring knowledge. If you aren’t capable of it or don’t wish to install it yourself, you can always hire a general handyperson or electrician. And if your chandelier is particularly heavy, you may need a friend or two’s assistance for the installation.
If you do decide to finish the installation yourself, gather the tools you will need. Your new chandelier will come with the necessary screws needed. You must provide the tools, such as a drill with the appropriate drill bit, wire caps, wire cutters, a chain or cord (if you do not wish to use the provided cord or chain), and something to cut the cord or chain. A heavy-duty knife or bolt cutters should do the trick.
Enjoy! Isn’t your rustic home just a little more beautiful? Now might be the perfect time to host a little party to celebrate your home’s beautiful decor upgrade.
