Are you renovating your bathroom and seeking a way to add some elegance? Installing a chandelier in the powder room can be just what you need to inject glamour and sophistication into the space. While we are used to seeing beautiful chandeliers in our dining and living rooms, using this lighting fixture in the restroom can elevate the style. In fact, chandeliers are manufactured in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and designs. Therefore, finding one that matches your bathroom interior will not be a problem.
Consider the Size of the Bathroom
Since a chandelier can take up more space than traditional bathroom lighting solutions, both visually and physically, you will need to consider the same in the powder room. A chandelier is a great lighting solution for bathrooms that are at least one hundred square feet. Why? Well, you will want to avoid squeezing some much into a small space, especially if you have a freestanding bathtub or multiple vanities. You do not want the chandelier to overpower the space.
However, you can make a chandelier work in a small-scaled bathroom. The key is opting for something small and pretty as opposed to a large elegant one that you would see in your dining room.
Consider the Ceiling Height
Of course, you will need adequate overhead space to hang a chandelier. In fact, in most area’s building codes require this extra space so that it does not hang too low over the bathtub, which can be a hazard. So, what should you do?
Before you make your final decision, you will want to make sure that your chandelier of choice meets both state and local regulations. National Electric Code requires any type of light or fan to be at least eight feet above or out from the bathtub.
Size and Shape of the Chandelier
When shopping for a bathroom chandelier, your decision should be influenced by the size and shape of the bathroom. In a circular shaped bathroom, a circle-shaped chandelier best complements the space. Also, if you have a grand bathroom, you can opt for a magnificent chandelier while small chandeliers are ideal for smaller bathrooms.
