Chandeliers find use today not only in the dining room but also in the bathrooms and bedrooms. Most people are often challenged about how to best use chandeliers in the bedroom; just for lighting or for decoration? The good news is that chandeliers can be used in the bedroom for both reasons, as well as to create an atmosphere that other light fixtures can only achieve through the use of dimmers. Apart from this, there are also other considerations that need to be considered.
The fairly large chandelier for the bedroom
Here are most of the things that go wrong. Chandeliers for bedrooms come in all sorts of different sizes, and so do most bedrooms. Ordering a chandelier just because you want one can lead to many regrets, as the chandelier with the wrong size will not achieve both style and function in the bedroom. One way to overcome this is by measuring the dimensions of the bedroom, which includes measuring the height of the wall and the length and width of the bedroom. The length and width measurements must be added together and the result must be used as the chandelier’s diameter size, in inches, ie. if the result is 24 feet, the diameter of the chandelier should be 24 inches. The wall height must then be adjusted to measure the height of the chandelier. Multiply the height of the wall by 2 or 3 to get the number in inches for the height of the chandelier, ie. if the wall height is 10 feet, the chandelier should be 20 or 30 inches long.
Tip: The chandelier does not need to be placed centrally in the room, but rather centered on the most striking objects in your bedroom, such as a masterpiece bed.
The right style of chandelier
Here’s style in relation to your bedroom’s interior design style. If the style is traditional, go for chandeliers for bedrooms that are traditionally decorated. If your style is modern, go for a chandelier with modern style. This will work to harmonize the theme of your bedroom decor and thus maintain the original style without colliding.
The right effect for the chandelier
This is of course due to the function of the chandelier. For ambient lighting, it is good to use a power of 25 watts. However, since chandeliers hold more than one light bulb, you should calculate the wattage needs of the room by multiplying the length and width and then multiplying the result by 1.5. This gives you the effect required for ambient lighting. For example, if your room is 12 x 14 feet, the result 168 should be multiplied by 1.5 to give 252 watts. If you use two bedside lamps, add their effect and minus this from the room effect to get the right chandelier effect.
