How and When to Choose a Chandelier
What images come to mind when you think of chandeliers? Do you envision extremely formal rooms with lighting draped in dangling crystals? Do you think of a room adorned in velvet drapes and heavy furniture sitting on large ornate rugs? I used to think this way. But I have learned that a chandelier can be like a pair of good-fitting jeans…meaning you can dress it up or you can dress it down. It’s all up to you!
I have found a few chandeliers that I would use in a non-traditional way. Like in my bathroom or bedroom. Yes, I would love to have a chandelier in my bathroom. Wouldn’t you?

Imagine you are soaking in the tub. It’s quiet and you are surrounded by fragrant bubbles. You have your favorite fragranced candle burning and when you look up the beauties in the pictures are twinkling above your head. I could absolutely see these two chandeliers in a bathroom. Both do have a sense of formality but they can also fit a less formal setting. If your bathroom is large enough to accommodate the width of these chandeliers, they could definitely enhance the space. And if these are a bit large for your taste or space, you can find a smaller version for your space.
Either of these great choices could be added to a bedroom. Do you agree? They are a bit different in style, but I
think they could make a bedroom very interesting. The first is actually very feminine while the
other has a little more of a masculine feel. I think the first one would be adorable in a girl’s bedroom or in the bedroom of a single woman. While, the second one, depending on the style of decor in the room, could also fit in other areas of the home, such as the kitchen, dining room or foyer. Do you agree?
This is the original chandelier room. It is the room where we traditionally expect to find a chandelier. Lighting is extremely important in a room where food is served. In this room, we want tableware, crystal, and china to sparkle and look inviting. We want the food to look enticing and the atmosphere to be conducive to enjoying the meal and the company. Look at the difference in styles. There is something for every décor and some are adaptable and can be dressed up or dressed down. Back to the jean analogy.
Every room in your home can be glammed up or glammed down with a chandelier. The feeling you get from a room depends a lot on the paint and the lighting. And note, having average height ceilings does not have to dictate the type of lighting you can have. Now-a-days you can customize chandeliers. Shorten the bar or lessen the links or even have your chandelier mounted directly to the ceiling. And if you find one you like but feel it’s too large for your space, check to see if it comes in a smaller version. Smaller chandeliers are very popular now since they are no longer relegated to the dining room. There are ways to have the chandelier you want for your home no matter the size. Give LightingMiami.com a try. I am certain they will have what you are looking for and some things you don’t even know you’re looking for.
What do you think? Is there a space in your home that could use some sparkle? Which room would you use a chandelier? Remember to think outside of the box.
