What Size Chandelier is Best for a Bedroom
What Size Chandelier is Best for a Bedroom?
My best answer to the question above is any size. Seriously. I think you can use any size you want.
Proper sizing: Room width + room length = chandelier width in inches... 10'x12' room takes a 22" wide chandelier. HOWEVER, in a bedroom, a chandelier is really an accent piece, so it is more about the decor. And, the ceiling height.
Ceiling height is the first consideration in a bedroom. You have to walk under the light, so standard height off the floor is 6 1/2 feet off the floor. Most people aren't taller than that (and if they are, they are used to ducking). If everyone in your house is short, good! That leaves more room for a chandelier. (Remember to account for ceiling hardware which can take up to 4" additional beyond the chandelier height.)
If you only have 8', you will do best to use a small chandelier, regardless of how large the room is. An 18" tall chandelier (maximum height for 8' ceiling) starts to look odd when it gets wider than 26".
If you are lucky, you will have tall ceilings and can use anything you want. But, unless you live in a palace, you don't want a huge chandelier in your bedroom. This is one room where less is more.
