Size Does Matter when Selecting the Perfect Chandelier

When selecting a chandelier for your home. It’s always important to consider the mood of the room. However, just as important is the size of the fixture. The best rule to follow is to measure the width and length of the room and add them together. This number is the perfect size for most rooms. Also, take into account the ceiling heights. This will help to balance the fixture in the overall design.

The Styles

With so many designs available it can get a bit overwhelming. As Interior Design professionals, we start with the mood, function, and style of the room. However, you should start with the finish to narrow down the selections. Unless you would like to go with custom finishes. Most lighting manufacturers create two or more finishes per style. The next step would be to figure out the correct size. And then look at the styles that fit the mood of the room.
