How to choose chandeliers and pendants?

The first step is to get to know your space and have the decorating style of the environment in mind. The ceiling chandelier is one of the finishing touches of the decor, so buy only when you have the furniture and colors defined. In this way, you guarantee harmony in every detail.

The size of the chandelier should be proportional to the space. Therefore, in the case of a small room, the small and simple chandelier is the best option to complement this decoration. On the other hand, in a large and spacious room, it would take more than a large ceiling lamp to keep the room well lit. Do you see the difference?

Below, as it is a small room, only a white chandelier (combining the clean and elegant style of the integrated room) was enough to light the place.

As for the colors, prioritize the color palette used in the decoration, without daring to choose too much. For example: an industrial environment, with pink and metallic elements, is even more beautiful with copper chandelier to highlight the color combination.

When in doubt, bet on chandeliers and neutral pendants. There’s no mistake!

Although many consider black to be neutral, be careful when choosing a black chandelier to decorate your environment. As it is a sober and strong color, it can differ from a clean and elegant environment. Then use the black chandelier only when other furniture has this color, as done in the example below.

For you to better understand how to combine the style of decoration with the chandelier, see below the different models of chandeliers and pendants and choose the one that most identifies you:

Chandelier and pendant models

Large, small, retro chandelier, chandelier… There is no lack of variety when it comes to ceiling chandeliers. Know the types and get the best tips on the subject.

Chandelier chandelier

The chandelier chandelier used to be the main alternative to decorate environments with a lot of refinement and luxury – especially the crystal chandelier.

Over time, the chandelier chandelier started to be made of other materials, such as acrylic and wood. Now, you can use it in both modern, romantic and retro environments – you name it!

As the chandelier chandelier is usually larger than the others, especially the crystal chandelier models, the ideal is that you leave it highlighted in the decoration.

But in case your environment is simple, then prefer to invest in simple chandelier models, which “talk” better with the rest of the decor and are beautiful.

Wire chandelier

The wire chandelier is one of the options of modern chandeliers that are making all the difference in decoration. So, if you don’t like the classic models and want to innovate with the industrial chandelier, bet on the wire!

The wire chandelier usually has the colors: copper, rose gold, black, gold and silver. But, depending on the store, you can also find other colors that are more vibrant to match your decor.

To ensure you have purchased an industrial chandelier to decorate your home, bet on the rosé gold chandelier, copper chandelier or black chandelier. They further highlight the industrial style, mainly combined with wooden and iron furniture.

Even if you don’t like the industrial chandelier, and want to bet on the wire, just use elements in your decor that are in the style of your preference. Below, you can see that the kitchen table is cheerful and modern with the wired rose gold chandelier.

Retro chandelier

The retro chandelier is characterized by the shape that resembles old light fixtures, with vibrant colors and unique details – usually geometric.

You can consider that any different chandelier, with a modern and creative design, is a retro chandelier. Just match the color of the chandelier with your decor.

In addition, it is worth remembering that the retro chandelier is not usually made of a very large size. You may have to use more than one to fully illuminate the room.

Rustic chandelier

Anyone who loves the super cozy wooden decor can bet on the rustic chandelier without fear!

Just like any furniture of the style, the rustic chandelier is usually made of wood, in the most varied formats. The best place to bet on the rustic chandelier is on gourmet balconies and gardens.

Square chandelier X Round chandelier: Which one to choose?

To choose between the square chandelier and the round chandelier, you need to evaluate your decor.

It is interesting that the square chandelier, for example, is close to furniture that has similar shapes, as above the square dining table. Notice below how symmetrical and visually pleasant the environment is.

The round chandelier is more practical to use in the decoration of the room and any other environment of your preference. Just use your creativity!

Where to put the chandelier?

The chandelier, also known as pendant, is necessary in all environments of the house. What will determine the choice for location is the size of the room and the style of the decoration.

Think that small rooms may have only a small chandelier in the center of the room, that the lighting will be enough for you to stay in place. Larger environments, such as a dining room, need a chandelier for a large dining table and, sometimes, even more than one to brighten the place and make it even more pleasant.

The ideal is to always position the pendant chandelier in the center of the room, especially when choosing the chandelier for the bedroom or the chandelier for the small room. However, if it is a larger environment, place more than one model (same or different) to help with lighting.

Check out below on how to choose the best pendant chandelier for each home environment:

Chandelier for double room

The chandelier for a double room needs to be adapted to the environment. But the ideal is that you choose the simple chandelier models, which do not interfere too much in the decoration and the cozy atmosphere that the double room needs to have.

Also, be careful with the size of the chandelier for the double room you choose. It cannot be too low, as it can disrupt the circulation of the room.

The ideal is to place the chandelier for a double room in the center of the room, however, if you like the idea of ​​adding pendants next to the bed – to give an extra charm in the decoration – prefer the simple model in the center (to brighten up a lot) and fancy the pendant chandeliers next to the headboard.

Chandelier for baby and children’s room

Did you choose a baby room theme? So it is interesting to buy a chandelier for baby room and children’s room that has the same style.

The room in the enchanted garden theme can have a beautiful chandelier for a baby room with flowers and butterflies, or print clouds on the fabric, which is very delicate. The circus theme can count on the colorful and fun baby room chandelier.

Just avoid choosing a too big and flashy children’s chandelier. Remember that the children’s chandelier is a complement to the decor, so anything that is exaggerated should be left out of your plans.

As not everyone likes to invest in decorative chandeliers and pendants, it is possible to find a colorful children’s chandelier without many details to harmonize with your decor. Notice below that the charm of the simple chandelier for baby room is the color on the inside. Vibrant and flashy in the right measure, like the rest of the room.

Chandelier for dining room and living room

Of all the rooms in the house, the chandelier for the dining room and the living room is the most important. This is because the room is the most welcoming environment and needs to be decorated in full harmony.

However, even if you have an integrated room, the pendant chandelier must be different for each of the rooms.

In the living room, use modern chandeliers right in the center of the room, usually in the same direction as the centerpiece. If the space is tight, then think of a chandelier for a small room that is suitable for the environment.

To complement, use plaster spots and crown moldings, as done in the photo below. Note that the chandelier for the small room is in the center of the room, highlighted, while the molding helps to leave the room well lit.

Retro style chandeliers for living room

And as the table is the highlight of the dining room, you need to buy a chandelier for the dining table.

When choosing, it is interesting to already have your table to buy a suitable chandelier for a dining table. A round table, however big, looks best with just one chandelier above it. It is more proportional.

A long, rectangular table is best with two or even three modern chandeliers on top – it is worth placing the same models or making a different combination. It is the best way to light the table completely.

Kitchen chandelier

Another place that always needs to be well lit for you to perform everyday tasks is the kitchen. Because of this, be extra careful to choose the chandelier for the kitchen.

Of course, the beauty of the kitchen chandelier is important, but depending on where you intend to place it, the priority is lighting.

Many models of chandeliers and pendants, as beautiful as they are, do not illuminate the environment as much as they should and that is why it ends up being important to complement the lighting with spots and led lamps.

In the case of the kitchen chandelier, there are some corners that are even more beautiful and you can choose the model you want, such as on the counter and above the kitchen table.

In the example above, as the kitchen is large and lit by a window, the large, golden kitchen chandelier turned out to be a great option to decorate the counter. In addition, the height of the ceiling allows the large chandelier not to hinder the view of those on the counter. So think about it when choosing the kitchen chandelier for your home!

Tip: the rosé gold chandelier is an excellent option for you to decorate the kitchen in a cheerful and beautiful way!

Bathroom chandelier

The chandelier for bathroom or toilet is usually small and very striking, to help decorate the place. Of course, you don’t need to use a crystal chandelier to decorate your modern bathroom, but there are colorful and different options of modern chandeliers that help to make your decor look sensational.

A very good option for a bathroom chandelier is the wire chandelier. You can find different sizes and combinations to decorate your bathroom, as you can see below, it looks very beautiful and different.

Tip: Renew old chandeliers

For those who like to restore vintage pieces, how about investing in old chandeliers? Depending on the material, you can transform the old chandeliers into current and perfect models to decorate your home.

The easiest model to restore is the wooden chandelier, as you only need to sand the material and paint in a new color or apply more varnish to make it look like new. However, with the right products, you can also restore the old iron chandeliers to make your decor even more beautiful and modern, in an industrial style.
