Chandeliers are more than ceiling light fixtures - they're statements that define a room. While we often think of chandeliers for dining rooms or foyers, they add a stylish touch to kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. From modern chandeliers in brushed nickel or polished chrome, to whimsical chandeliers for nurseries and children's rooms, you'll find a chandelier for every style and every room at Bellacor.
How Do I Choose a Chandelier?
Before you select a chandelier there are a few things you should take into consideration:
Purpose – amount of light output required
Scale – size needed based on your rooms dimensions
Height- how high to hang based on size of room and chandelier placement
Finish – type of finish that will compliment your space
Style – do you have a particular style in mind?
Care – how easy is installation? what about long term care and cleaning?
To determine what size chandelier you need for your room, all you need is the room’s length and width. If a room is 12x12 feet just add those two numbers together - so, in this case, 24 feet. Use that number as your guide, but instead of feet, use inches. So for a 12x12 room, look for a 24 inch chandelier.
Additional considerations for size include:
In a dining room, use your table size as a guide. Take the width of the dining table and subtract 12 inches. For example, if a table width is 48 inches, subtract 12 inches and the chandelier should be 36 inches wide. Your chandelier should hang no lower than 30-36 inches above your table.
In a hallway, foyer or living space,for every foot of ceiling height allow 2-3 inches in chandelier height. So in a room with 9 foot ceilings, look for a chandelier around 27 inches in height.
In a bathroom, hang your chandelier so that you can get in - and out - of the tub without hitting your head!
