Chandeliers offer ambient lighting and are typically recommended for foyers, dining rooms, bedrooms or primary baths. When shopping for chandeliers, consider:
-- The recommended height for hanging a chandelier above a dining room table is 30 inches for the lowest part of the chandelier.
-- The recommended diameter for a dining room chandelier is half the width of the table.
-- For other rooms, add the length and width of the room, then convert that number into inches for the ideal diameter of the chandelier.
Follow these three easy steps to get the right size chandelier:
-- Measure the length and width of the room in feet (ex: 12 ft. + 10 ft.).
-- Add the numbers together (12 ft. + 10 ft. = 22 ft.).
-- This number, in inches, is the suggested width of your chandelier (22 in.).

Rustic chandeliers often utilize wood or wood-look pieces. This style is inspired by nature and ideal for country-style rooms. Rustic chandeliers can also mix well with industrial decor since both styles frequently feature bronze chandeliers and distressed wood accents.
Modern chandeliers use natural materials and can feature exposed structural elements similar to industrial chandeliers. While black chandeliers and white chandeliers are the most common colors in this style, modern chandeliers also often offer bold accent colors and metallics.

A chandelier is like a piece of jewelry you can use to illuminate and elevate any space. Make it interesting. Art deco chandeliers feature sleek, linear and geometric forms that create a monolithic appearance. Place one in your dining area, or over the island storage in your closet. Candle chandeliers are designed to resemble candles, while cage chandeliers feature a light source surrounded by a metal, wire or wood cage.
