Treat Your Home To Some Fine Wine
Wine Glass Chandeliers are the perfect blend of form and function. You can use your own beautiful crystal or glass wine glasses as the shades for these contemporary lighting fixtures. They store your glasses and refract the light for these multi-purposed chandeliers. They are as attractive as they are smart by saving space and lighting the area of your choice.
You no longer have to worry about chipping glasses by taking them in and out of your china cabinet, and we all know that the more you handle stemware, the more likely you are to break them. Now you can store them up and out of the way, and they can perform an important function by gently diffusing the light at the center of the fixture. Everyone can use more space in their cupboards!
Of course, not all Wine Glass Chandeliers have useable glasses. Many have wine glass shaped glass shades that are perfect for restaurants and bars as well as home use in dining rooms and kitchens. The glass can be clear, frosted or colored for a softer lighting. Not all Wine Glass Chandeliers are small either. Many are round in shape with as little 16 glasses, but there are some larger Wine Glass Chandeliers with multiple tiers and they can hold upwards of 48 glasses.
Many of these Wine Glass Chandeliers are Danish modern in style with simple lines and smooth iron arms and supports. They come in many finishes to complement any décor. There are also old world, rustic wine barrel ring chandeliers that hold the glasses by their stems. These usually have bulbs in the middle of the fixture so the light can refract off the glasses.
What a great conversation piece over your home bar or kitchen! You want to make sure you have enough clearance over bars and tables, at least 30 inches, and that the lighting fixture will be out of reach for any seating areas. Any wine enthusiast or mixologist would love to have a Wine Glass Chandelier in their home.
You could even have a dimmer switch installed with one of these Wine Glass Chandeliers in your dining area that will lower the light for dining, but make it possible to brighten the room for all those other tasks we all do at our dining tables. Since they are close to the kitchen, there is no need to worry about cleaning these intricate fixtures. Just take the glasses off and pop then in your automatic dishwasher and you are good to go! What other chandelier can you do that with?
While you certainly can use your own glasses in these practical lighting fixtures, many will provide the glasses to be used. There are no limits to the color possibilities and lighting variations, depending on the glassed held there. Cut crystal glasses and goblets will refract light like the most expensive crystal chandelier, but even inexpensive colored or frosted wine glasses will also do the trick and add ambience and soft lighting to any room.
