3 Good Tips for Choosing Living Room Chandelier
Chandeliers are never going to be quiet and reserved, so why not go as bold as you dare for LIVING ROOM? Statement chandeliers are the jewellery of an interior. A great way to level up your living room is with a grand, statement chandelier, whether that’s an ornate, rococo-style, gilt piece, dome glass shade, round minimalist or a contemporary sputnik globe.
1. Size Does Matter
It's easy to get overwhelmed when you're trying to figure out if big or small or 2 or more are called for chandelier, but don't fret! For every foot of ceiling height, allow between 2 and 3 inches in chandelier height.
A large crystal chandelier can add a lot to a room – but could it be too much sometimes? Chandeliers come in different sizes, and sometimes it's better for living room decoration to have multiple smaller chandeliers than one large chandelier.
2. Reflect Room Style
Crystal chandelier are perfect for creating a glamorous and luxurious look. The massive brass frame, with what looks like an over-the-top cluster of precious gems in its center is just enough to take any living room up a notch.
There's nothing more striking than setting the mood with a black finish chandelier. In modern living room, we love light fixtures flaunting a black finish, and an old-school iron chandelier is no exception, which usually adds a sophisticated touch and a welcome dose of contrast to boot.
Opt for minimalism chandelier. Sometime forget all of the fussy frills and decorative details and take a minimalist approach to your lighting design. Think clean lines and simple silhouettes, like the hand blown glass orbs that make up multiple chic LED glass bubble chandelier.
3. Keep It in Proportion
Chandeliers aren’t just for grand rooms, it's the rules below you can refer when it comes to the proportions of living room chandelier ideas. Maintain proportion when designing your lighting layout so that you don't overwhelm or underwhelm whoever walks into view! For example, in the small living room, an ornate gold empire chandelier has been scaled down to suit the room, lending the space elegance without being overbearing.
Frequently Asked Chandelier Questions
What Types of Chandeliers are Suitable for Different Types of Spaces?
• Large Foyer with High Ceilings or Two Story Spiral Staircase
It would be best if you understood that you couldn't settle for a simple little chandelier when you have a ceiling of more than 11 feet high. If you do, you will need more budget to decorate and highlight other elements of the foyer. Instead, you can find a rounder yet long, cascading chandelier that blends the tall ceiling while also saving yourself from unnecessary decorative costs that have no value for the space.
• Low Ceiling Foyer
Suppose you have a simple house with a low ceiling. Spherical or square ceiling chandeliers would be the perfect combination. Based on our experience and opinions, a cozy little foyer might combine well with an organized entrance chandelier. Be aware that deciding on a chandelier for the foyer should not be hasty. Instead, it is crucial to consider the size of the foyer and the distance between the ceiling and the floor, which is to ensure that the chandelier does not consume the entire space. They are just right, not too much or too little.

If you are unfamiliar with chandelier installation, we recommend contacting a licensed contractor or electrician.
How High Should Chandelier Be?
If you are hanging the chandelier on an open floor, chandelier's bottom should at least be 7.5 feet away from the floor.
If you are hanging the chandelier above a dining table or kitchen island, chandelier's bottom should be 30 to 36 inches away from the tabletop.
To determine the appropriate height of the chandelier in any room - from bottom to top:
Room height (ft) x 2.5 = Minimum chandelier height (in)
Room height (ft) x 3 = Maximum chandelier height (in)
For example, a 9-foot ceiling can have a 22.5-inch-tall chandelier or a 27-inch-tall chandelier. Remember that when choosing a chandelier, ensure there is still walking clearance below.
How to Install A Chandelier?
There's an installation guide for every object we sell. Installation by a licensed electrician is strongly recommended.
How to Clean A Crystal Chandelier?
• Lay a blanket on the floor directly below the chandelier to prevent the parts from falling and cracking.
• Turn off the chandelier before cleaning. As a safety precaution, put a piece of tape on the light switch to prevent the lamp from being accidentally turned on.
• Make your simple cleaner: isopropanol and four parts distilled water.
• Wear white cotton gloves to prevent fingerprints from being transferred to the crystal prism.
• Spray homemade detergent on a lint-free cloth, and do not spray directly on the chandelier. Gently wipe the crystal with a damp cloth, and then immediately dry with another glove or cloth.
