A chandelier gives a classic and elegant look to any room of the home. In 2018, chandeliers are everywhere, and we’re even seeing them used in a really unexpected way in bathrooms or bedrooms rather than the traditional living area, dining room, or foyer. Because there has never been a better time to invest in a chandelier, it pays to know how to choose the perfect one for the space you’re looking for.
The first thing you’ll want to do when choosing the perfect chandelier for your home design is to consider the room you’re choosing. If you’re adding a chandelier into a smaller space, like a bathroom, you’re going to want to look for something very different than the chandelier that sits above your sitting area. For a smaller space such as this, going for a simple pendant light will give you the drama of hanging lighting, but it won’t take up too much space or make the room look even smaller. A great option for a bathroom chandelier is our Coleman Brass Pendant or Harley Copper Pendant.
You not only want to consider the space of your room, but also the height of your chandelier and the height of your ceiling. A chandelier may not be the best choice in a space with particularly low ceilings, as even adjustments may not work to keep the fixture out of everyone’s way. In these areas, you will find that table lamps and floor lamps are the more suitable option, and you should leave the chandeliers to those spaces with the vertical space to emphasize them without becoming too much. These smaller lighting fixtures can be just as statement making, and even more accessible with AfterPay.
Finding your style is the most fun part of choosing a chandelier. You can take on the task yourself, or seek the assistance of an interior designer or styling service, but regardless of your approach, this is a part of the process that is very enjoyable. It’s important to remember that your chandelier will be a statement piece, whether you intend it to be or not, and one that is tasked with the important job of setting the atmosphere of your space. Chandeliers can be found to suit industrial styles, whimsical styles, classic styles, or stand-out modern styles, so it’s not tough to find just what you’re looking for in terms of design. For a true statement, you may even opt to try a style that you initially think may not be your thing.
