Whether your style is classic, rustic, industrial, modern – or all of the above! – there’s a chandelier to fit your fancy, wherever you choose to use it.
Aside from the obvious areas that scream for a more sophisticated or spectacular fixture – your formal dining room or foyer – these timeless pieces can add flair in seemingly unexpected places.
Add an element of elegance to any walk-in closet by simply switching out the current fixture in favor of a chandelier. Voila! Instaglam.
Tip: Choose a fixture size that feels proportionate to the dimensions of the closet, including the height. If the closet is small or has a low ceiling, consider a semi-flush-mount design.
Embrace the look of small-scale pendant- or sconce-style chandeliers in the bedroom. A sleek alternative to clunky table lamps, sconce or pendant pieces save space on the surface of nightstands and the like.
The lesson here? Chandeliers instantly add panache AND make room for more important things – like the latest issue of Elle Décor.
I spend a good amount of time in front of my bathroom mirror prepping for the day, as I’m sure many of you do as well. Instead of standing under lack-luster pendants or super-uninspiring vanity lighting, why not opt for an opulent mini chandelier? I know … so much better, right?
Tip: Chandeliers make a statement. If you need more than one for, say, a double vanity, go for a slender pendant-style option that won’t overpower the room.
Babies love bling! It’s true – our obsession with all things pretty and sparkly starts early. A dainty chandelier in baby’s new bedroom will give the space a perfectly polished look that both you and your little one will adore.
What teen doesn’t dream of an ultra-amazing space that he or she can show off to friends? Coordinate the colors of your teen’s room with an amped-up take on the traditional chandelier. Hot hues like pink, black, orange, and purple make it easy to add the extra character they crave.
Alternatively, a simple, modern design will do the trick for the teen who loves a fresh, neutral aesthetic.
Want to add to your ambiance without any rewiring? Easy. Chandelier-style lamps were made to do just that. I’m sure your home office could use an ounce of the unexpected … or at the very least, something with a hint of fun frivolity to combat an all-work-no-play vibe.
