Urban Living Room Ideas – Why Have Chandeliers?

A chandelier can do wonders for your room. It can lighten up not only the room, but everybody’s spirits as well. This is why it becomes very important for you to make the correct decision while selecting the perfect chandelier for your living room.

Your living room is the place where you spend the most of your time when you are at home. This is why adding a chandelier to a living room can provide you with the right ambience needed in a cozy and comfortable house.

A chandelier adds the charm and the elegance of lighting up the ambience of a house. It provides beautiful rays of light to support proper lighting and entertaining. You need to choose one that’s large enough to illuminate the entire table with light so that none of your guests are lost in the shadows.


Decide the Right Size

If you want to choose a chandelier and don’t have living room furniture yet, then you can follow a very simple rule. You need to add the length and width measurements together. This answer to your question is the right size your living room chandelier should be. For example, if your living room is 12’X 16’ then your chandelier should have a diameter of 28’.

On the other hand, if you have a coffee table or a centre table, it’s important to match the dimensions of the chandelier to the table than to the room. The golden rule that you need to follow in this regard is to ensure that the chandelier is one-half to three-quarters the width of your coffee table.


In order to get the right height for hanging, you need to keep the chandelier about 30-32 inches above the table. This will help you to adjust the size of the table with your work set up.

Put the Right Lights

It is very important to cast the right amount of light to create a charming ambience. This is done with the aim of avoiding the harsh light that emanates from more direct and functional lighting. This will enable you to cast a soft, yellow glow over your entire sofa.

It will be all the more worthwhile if you can add dimmer lights so that you can adjust lighting as needed. Shades will also enable you to get softer lighting. We all adore the shades that chandelier’s have for the flexibility they offer in styling.


With this, you can change your look throughout the year. You need to use deeper and more dramatic colors in the fall in keeping with the mood of the season and can brighten up the spring look with cream, butter yellow or another soft color.

You may also switch to frosted glass or any other look altogether. All these little tips will help you get the right tones and hues the moment you put your lights on in the living room. This will help create an ambience that your guests will cherish for a lifetime.

Thus, we see the ways in which you can select the perfect chandelier for your living room. This will add another feather to your cap.
