How to Place a Chandelier in Every Room

Chandeliers might be very beautiful, but they are certainly very hard to place. To help you, we’ve come up on how to place a chandelier.

Lighting is a very important element in any room. The way we decide to light a room up defines how we and others will perceive it, so you need to spend time figuring out the perfect spot for the lamps of your choice. It’s never wasted time!

Chandeliers are the kings of lighting, but the most complicated to place in a room, especially a small one. Yet they create the perfect atmosphere, bringing a mix of elegance, style, romanticism, and luxury to the table. But you must place it perfectly or you will never achieve the look you aim for.

We gathered some tips that might help you.

1. Ceiling Height

Much like the next tip we have for you, it’s all about choosing the right size. This one focuses more on length. If you fell in love with a chandelier, before you buy it make sure you check the ceiling height. It should not be close to any other furniture items.

LUXXU offers a variety of chandeliers, and the best part is, you can customize color and size.

2. Choose the Right Size

While big chandeliers may be magnificent and all you ever wanted, if your room is not big enough it would look crowded if it’s the other way around and the chandelier is too small, it would look lost. If you feel like a small chandelier does no justice to a room using two of the same model is a great idea. Check this one for a smaller model and this one for a big chandelier.

3. Center it Over a Dining Table

One of the easiest ways is to center it over a table instead of the middle of the room. If your table is in the center of the room you can have the best of both worlds.



4. Place it over a Bed
