Ask any female what they first think of when you say the word "chandelier" and they'll tell you about that romantic ballroom scene from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Ask any male that same question and most likely you'll get a blank stare. I call this so-called phenomenon the "Huh? Response."

Educating the male in your life that there's more to lighting than desk lamps won't be as hard as asking two of them to screw in a light bulb. In fact, it's so simple, a caveman can do it (cue Geico voiceover)! Let's start easy, WHAT is a chandelier? According to, a chandelier is "a decorative, sometimes ornate, light fixture suspended from a ceiling, usually having branched supports for a number of lights."

WHERE exactly, should one hang a chandelier? Well my dear, one of the best places to hang your chandelier is in the foyer right when your guests step into your home. A magnificent display of light will greet your visitors, family members, solicitors, what have you. Other fabulous places to hang your chandelier include the dining room or living room. The addition of something as grandiose as a chandelier will automatically transform any normal living or dining setting into one fit for a king.

But don't think that any chandelier will do! Take into consideration the style that you're going for. Let's say you are the proud owner of a 16th century style ceiling light that looks simply…16th century. Three tiers of Gothic style candelabra lamps with chain detail complete with iron scroll-work and arrow-styled arms doesn't really say "Welcome to my Avant-garde home," but it may suggest that you'll all be dining in your dungeon. Unless you DO have a dungeon (and the aforementioned chandelier I described would look TERRIFIC in it), I suggest taking someone of sound mind with you in choosing the perfect chandelier. After all, you'll need the spectacular looking lighting to distract your visitors long enough to come up with a good excuse as to why your place is a mess.

Looking for awesome chandeliers or perhaps even some pendant lighting? Look no further than!
