Are you looking for a way to make a small bathroom glimmer, or are you trying to add a sparkle to a drab room? Try adding a modern chandelier for a warm and elegant look! Traditionally, you would think of grand chandeliers in large homes’ entryways, and now they can be added to any room!
“Chandeliers are like beautiful pieces of jewelry that pull an outfit together to make a singular, bold statement.”Designer Kelly Wearstler

Pick a Style
There are many online and retail options to choose a chandelier. Many sites, such as Wayfair, lets you filter your selection and have affordable options. In-store, Homesense has a wide variety of unique lighting fixtures. My advice, if you see something there that you like, buy it! Their inventory turns over quickly, and you can always return it if you are unhappy. Check out my Pinterest and Houzz IdeaBoards for inspiration if you haven’t decided what type of fixture you want.
DIY or Hire
The internet offers many tips on hanging a light fixture from Home Depot to YouTube Videos. If you are uncomfortable with doing this yourself, check with your friends or neighbors to find recommendations, or click here for electricians from Home Advisor.
