With hundreds of options, choosing the right chandelier can seem daunting. While you’re browsing, keep these variables in mind:

The Purpose of the Chandelier

Carefully consider what you want to achieve with the chandelier. Are you looking to light a lofty hallway or a living room with a cathedral ceiling? A multi-tiered chandelier will provide ample illumination and fill the space for maximum visual impact. Perhaps you want to use your dining room lighting to create a focal point for your guests, in which case a large chandelier with elaborate details and elegant lines may be your best option. If you’d like to add a touch of romance to a powder room or bedroom, a small chandelier decorated with crystals, pearls, or other delicate details may be your best bet.

The Chandelier Style You Need

Like any light fixture, the chandelier you choose should complement the style of its surroundings. Match modern, minimalist decór with uniquely shaped fixtures or a chic and streamlined linear chandelier. A rustic chandelier with wooden, wrought-iron, or industrial design elements is an excellent option in a farmhouse, cabin, or Craftsman-style home, while an ornate style fits well in a traditionally decorated home with bold furniture and classic décor. Dramatic and eye-catching, a crystal chandelier is especially well suited for a formal dining room, living room, or entryway foyer.

The Right Chandelier Size & Placement

A number of factors determine how big a chandelier should be. Before choosing the fixture, you need to know not only the size of your room, but also the height of its ceiling, where the chandelier will hang, and what other furnishings and décor fill the space. When measuring for a dining room chandelier, for example, you’ll want to take into consideration the length and width of the table. If you have an open floor plan, you’ll want to measure the specific space where the chandelier will hang, rather than the entire area. Consult our guidelines on how to choose the right size chandelier for your home.
