Antique Brass Chandeliers Ideas

Compared to other kinds of chandeliers, antique brass chandeliers stand out for being ornate and at the same time down to earth. Although noted for its malleability, brass is a very durable metal, so that you are ensured of both timeless elegance and long-term practicality for your home.

You might find yourself becoming overwhelmed at first when you go out shopping for an antique brass chandelier, because of the many styles and designs to choose from. To aid in your selection, take note of the interiors of the room where you are planning to install it. For large rooms like the living room and dining room, you will need to give it an aura of homey elegance with the use of antique brass chandeliers with Murano glass, Capiz shells or crystal ornaments. If you are on a tight budget, you can get a wrought iron chandelier that has been electroplated with brass in a special antique finish.

Homeowners who are constantly on the go will be delighted by how little is required to maintain their antique brass chandeliers. With just regular dusting, wiping it with a soft cloth moistened in mild soap and water or metal polish, you can maintain your chandelier's lustrous glow. To prevent rust and corrosion from developing, make sure to wipe your chandelier completely dry. Another rust-preventing measure is to place the chandelier in only cool, dry places in your home. There has been a question about using antique brass chandeliers outdoors to give a porch or veranda a classy feel. However, exposing it to the elements may make it prone to rusting, so regular maintenance is required.

If you are looking for a lighting fixture that will be a great addition to your room, you can't go wrong with the warm, gorgeous glow of a timeless classic like an antique brass chandelier.
