Chandeliers add sparkle and glam to any indoor space. The same can be said for small or mini chandeliers that offer the same amount of chic—in a smaller package. Mini chandeliers fit perfectly in a bathroom, bedroom, hallway, entryway, foyer – any intimate room in your home is the perfect space. Whether you're looking for a small bathroom chandelier or small bedroom chandelier, this luxe lighting style will add a sparkling touch to your interior.
Mini Chandeliers Offer Style and Function
Big on style, mini chandeliers are perfect for small spaces. Plus, small-scale chandeliers are shorter in height making them ideal for rooms with low ceilings. Here are a few ideas for styling these lighting gems throughout your home:
Breakfast Nook – No dining room? A mini chandelier looks great above a small dining table or bistro table.
Kitchen Island – A matching pair of small crystal chandeliers or chandelettes above a kitchen island add glam and essential light.
Home Office – A small chandelier above a home office desk looks refined and provides plenty of illumination for everyday tasks.
Hallway – Light up a hallway by hanging a mini chandelier near a wall mirror. The mirror will reflect the light making the hallway feel more spacious.
Master Bedroom – As your private hideaway, the master bedroom deserves a special touch. A small chandelier will add elegance and warmth to your dressing area, bed, and personal oasis.
Girls' Room – Mini chandeliers are available in fun, feminine designs which makes them an excellent choice for a girl's room. Consider styles with frills, flowers, baubles, and crystal accents for whimsical and fashionable lights she'll love.
Guest Bedroom – Upstyle your guest room by placing a mini chandelier above the bed. Small chandeliers are an inexpensive way to add flair to a guest room without breaking the budget. Your guests will be impressed!
Master Bathroom – Spacious master baths require plenty of overhead ambient lighting in addition to task lighting near a wall mirror. With so many available styles, it's easy to choose one that coordinates with your bath furniture, hardware, and decor.
Miniature Chandelier Considerations
Before you buy, here are a few important tips to keep in mind:
Do you currently have a builder-grade light fixture installed in the room? If so, you may need to purchase a ceiling medallion as well. Why? A ceiling medallion will cover any bare, unpainted areas. No repainting will be required.
Take measurements of your room before you buy. Also, consider table-to-ceiling height. A too-wide mini chandelier can overwhelm a space while a too-tall chandelier above a dining table may create a glare on the surface or obstruct the view of guests.
Consider a dimmable option. Do you prefer bright light in the a.m. for grooming and low, warm lighting for evening bathing? Consider a small chandelier with a dimmable feature to set the desired mood any time of day.
If you plan to install a mini chandelier above or near a bathtub, be sure to follow all electrical codes.
Q: How high does one need to hang a mini chandelier?
A: The distance between the floor and the bottom of the chandelier should be 80-84 inches. Because a mini chandelier will be more common in a small space, you don't want it any lower or you run the risk of overpowering the space. Any higher, and the chandelier will get lost and not do much to illuminate.
Q: What is best location for mini chandeliers in a bedroom?
A: Mini-chandeliers are an ideal fit in the bedroom. They offer a high style and a little bit of glitz, but they do it without overwhelming the bedroom space. Install a mini-chandelier to the overhead junction box of the bedroom. You can find this in the middle of the room where a flush mount lighting fixture goes. For extra ease use a swag chandelier. These are great because they install on hooks, can adjust for height, plug into your wall outlet and can even be used over a bedside table.
