A chandelier is a dramatic lighting option that elevates the style and dynamics of your room. Whether you’re looking to add a pop of color with a colorful glass chandelier or the natural aesthetic of a rustic antler fixture, there are a variety of styles to fit your décor. Choosing the right chandelier size is crucial for uplighting your living spaces. A long multi-light chandelier is perfect for hanging over a dining table, while a single chandelier looks better over a smaller kitchen table.

To determine the proper chain length for your chandelier, use a tape measure to measure the height of the ceiling from floor to table and then add 4 inches to the bottom of the fixture’s lowest part. Then, connect the stripped end of the black ceiling wire that carries current to the corresponding stripped end of the chandelier’s black wire and twist them together with a wire nut. Repeat this step for the white light fixture wire and white neutral supply wire to ensure your fixture is properly connected to the electrical box.

Once your chandelier is securely attached to the ceiling, insert the correct light bulbs to finish the installation. Incorporate halogen or LED bulbs to bring out the sparkle of your crystal or glass chandelier and maximize its energy efficiency. Or, try incandescent bulbs to create a warm glow. For more ambient light, check out our flush mount chandeliers, which are recommended for rooms with 8-foot or lower ceilings and can be used in bedrooms, hallways, closets and kitchens.
