Choosing the right chandelier as the focal point of the room will make your home the envy of all your friends. But when it comes to choosing the right chandelier for your space there are various considerations that need to be taken into account.
What size chandelier is right for my room?
When it comes to choosing the right chandelier for your space, one of the biggest considerations is what size, and what hape, chandelier will work best in your room. Before you begin choosing your chandelier, you need to assess your space and decide where exactly you want to install your chandelier. It is important to measure the space to determine what size designer handelier you need (in terms of width and height) to create the impact you want to. A good guide is to measure the room’s length and width, add these two numbers together and use the total to determine the ideal diameter of your chandelier. If however you dream of hanging your chandelier over a table or countertop space, a good rule of thumb is to hang it approximately 75-90 cm above the top of the table.
What style of chandelier would suit my space?
Once you have figured out what size of chandelier would work well in your room, you need to next think about the space in terms of color and style. You want the chandelier you choose to not only fit in to the room you choose, but to enhance it. Think about what colour, what material, and what finish you imagine your dream chandelier to be. Is your room styled in a traditional way with lots of dark wood and antique finishings? Is your space modern and contemporary? Or are you looking to really make a statement of luxury and glamour? Whatever your style, the perfect designer chandelier is waiting for you. For example, just look at how the Luisa Modern Brass Chandelier accentuates the Flamingo Room in the above image, tying together all the pieces of furniture to create a beautiful style of pure luxury.
What kind of statement are you hoping to make with the lighting?
As well as being an eye-catching focal point, a chandeliers primary purpose is to cast light through your room. It is important that you ensure that the way the light comes out of the chandelier you choose doesn’t create a glare which will impact the ambience or function of the room. Consider the direction which the light will shine, and whether enclosed or exposed bulbs would be right for your room. If you later decide that the chandelier you’ve chosen is too bright or glaring for your room you can always install a dimmer switch so that you can control the light output at all times.
