Few things make a bigger visual splash than overhead lighting. Each fixture brings its own unique character to a room while enhancing its overall look and feel. With 2018 quickly shaping up to be the year of the oversized chandelier – although if you ask us, we think these dynamic designs are sized just right – you may assume that these extravagant pieces are reserved for living rooms, bedrooms, or mansions only… Well, you may want to think again. Entryways, staircases, and offices are surprisingly agreeable to this bold but versatile trend! So, we’re revealing how (and where) to give it a try within your own home.
1. The Foyer
Greet your guests with lighting that makes an unforgettable first impression. Foyers and entryways are prime real estate for attention-grabbing fixtures that show off your personal sense of style. Elevate an otherwise ordinary space with a luminous multi-bulb chandelier, draw attention to a fireplace with a tiered iron and glass fixture, or position a beautifully draped crystal stunner next to an open series of windows to watch it glisten in the sun. These oversized designs provide ample illumination in high-traffic areas, and they set the tone for your overall home décor.
