Before we take a look at the range of Minka Lavery chandeliers, let’s see how you can decide on a chandelier which is most suitable for your home.

Chandeliers find their origin from medieval times, before the advent of electricity. The word itself originates from the French language for “candle”. They originally carried lit candles to light up castle halls and manors. Chandeliers were restricted to royalty and nobility for their sheer cost and maintenance, with lamp lighters being employed to maintain them. In the modern age, chandeliers are widely used in homes. Electrical lamps have taken the place of candles, with LEDs now replacing incandescent bulbs and CFLs as the light source of choice. Chandeliers fulfill both form and function with their sweeping designs and expensive materials. The different size categories of chandeliers are mini, small and medium, large and grand.  Grand and Large sized chandeliers are best suited for big rooms with high ceilings like atria, ballrooms and large dining halls. Medium and small sized chandeliers go well with upscale living rooms. Mini chandeliers are most suitable for lighting up a regular sized dining area. With regular maintenance, chandeliers can last for decades and become valuable antiques in their own right.
