June 26, 2009, Newsletter Issue #172: Decorating With Chandeliers

Tip of the Week

Installing chandeliers can brighten and beautify living spaces, but it's not a step to be taken lightly. Ideally, the chandeliers you choose will be part of your family's life and home for many years. Some things to keep in mind as you plan the decor of your room:
Before you fall in love with one of the beautiful dining-room chandeliers you see online, think about how long you're going to be staying in your house. Buyers and sellers often get into disputes about chandeliers, with a buyer believing the crystal chandelier went with the property and a seller who wants to take it away. If you know you're going to be selling your house within a few years, choose something light-colored and neutral, rather than an heirloom for your kids.Hanging chandeliers can be a tricky task if you don't have much experience with electricity or home repair. Budget for whatever professional help and/or tools you will need.Pay attention to whether your chandelier requires standard bulbs, and how much they cost.
