Size matters

When picking the right chandelier, pay attention to its size. What’s more, you should consider the size of your bathroom area too. Large chandelier in the small bathroom would look ridiculous and make you uncomfortable; conversely the small chandelier would look out of place. Seek for the harmony at its finest. Usually, small bathroom chandeliers or chandelettes are the best option. They don’t spoil the total look of bathroom with an excessive luxury, but they do add intimacy and zest.

Position for comfort

By the rule, chandeliers are the additional lightning source, and serve mostly for the garnishment, so they are always supported by tubes, scones, lamps, and mirrors as reflective surfaces. Modern designers prefer to locate the chandeliers above the bathtub. It implicates the idea of privacy and helps to relax even more. However, be careful installing the chandelier. Take into account its weight, and if it is heavier than 40 pounds – make sure it is built-in securely. It may sound silly, but the length of chandelier can be a tricky thing. You should place it at least higher than your height, so you can go into the bathtub comfortably, and water splashes don’t reach the chandelier and especially bulbs. The normal length of the chandelier is considered to be 8 feet above the highest point of the bathtub.

Material

Chandeliers are available at any form and material. However, bathroom chandeliers implicate particular requirements related to safety. You don’t want your chandelier to rust, darken or dim, you don’t need cable fault. Chandeliers from stainless materials, brass, plastic, aluminum, and bronze are safe and trendy choice. Brass is the perfect option as it is persistent to oxidation, unlike the iron, but it is pretty expensive. A lot of manufacturers construct chandeliers with iron frames or fixtures, it is inappropriate for the bathroom chandeliers. Always ask the consultant for the details. The diversity of variants amazes, so it’s up to your preferences.

Lighting

The aim of the chandelier is to light the particular area in the house. You need to remember that chandelier in bathroom can not be the only source of light, unless you like extreme intimacy. In many houses bathrooms are illuminated artificially. If you don’t have sunlight access to your bathroom, pick the light bulbs with longer durability and mild light, because if the light is too bright it can create the differences in light perception through house zones. Excessive eye tension is useless, as bath is a place for relax. Crystal chandeliers will create additional sparkling and splendour. If possible locate the mirrors towards the chandelier to reflect the light.

Chandelier often takes the emphasis of the room, so you should be sure it would not look abundant. It becomes a central and major element of the bathroom. It is important not to saturate the bathroom too much. From the first sight a lot of combinations may seem unconventional, but from the other point of view it can be considered as gaudiness. Determination of bathroom mission will help you to avoid misleading in concepts of gaudiness and unconventionality. Remember that in most cases abundance harms. From traditional point of view if bathroom chandelier looks sumptuous, other details shouldn’t stick out.
