Why We Love Living Room Chandeliers
Make a statement in the living room with a modern chandelier. In the most common room of the house where your guests are guaranteed to gather, you will want to impress them with a stunning chandelier that acts as the focal point of the room. Chandeliers are a familiar choice of lighting and brighten spaces like living rooms with personality, style and of course, illumination. Whether your living room follows a traditional decorating aesthetic or a clean and minimalist look and feel, there is a chandelier here you will love to introduce to your home.
Chandeliers are a type of lighting used to leave a lasting impression. In entryways, dining rooms and living rooms, a chandelier is the ideal option of lighting to create those sought after oohs and ahhhs in these areas of the home. These well-chosen chandeliers are also designed to fit in a variety of rooms with options ranging from large, robust suspensions to smaller fixtures meant for urban and compact living rooms. And from chic mid-century modern chandeliers to those laced with luxurious crystal features that immediately elegance, you'll appreciate a new chandelier in your living room.
A Living Room Chandelier for Every Style
Modern living room chandeliers accomplish two tasks simultaneously by offering a functional amount of light and working as a statement piece in the room. In contemporary living rooms, the Hope Suspension by Luceplan is sure to add a glimmering and luxurious touch, while Sputnik-styled retro chandeliers from Arteriors and Jonathan Adler fit a mid-century modern aesthetic. Transitional living rooms benefit from the fixtures in the collection from Feiss and look to the LED-infused chandelier options from SONNEMAN to maintain healthy energy efficiency in the space. Whatever your "look" may be, there's a chandelier here to fit it.
Choosing the Best Living Room Chandelier
As with any choice of ceiling light, choosing the best chandelier for your living room begins with its size. First, properly measure the area of your living room's ceiling to gauge just how much room you have to work with. The chandeliers found here are offered in a wide range of sizes making it critical for you to pay careful attention to dimensions like height, width, diameter and hanging length (how far the fixture will suspend from its canopy). If you have a variety of other fixtures in the living room, you may want to check out the chandelier's lumen scale to determine just how bright it will be as an indication of how it might play with other light sources. Finally, with a size, shape and brightness in mind, refine your selection by the colors and finishes that best accommodate your living room's existing decor.

You can accomplish the same decorative and dramatic impact with a pendant. Pendant lights differ from the look and shape of a chandelier in that they often retain a slimmer profile and are hung from the ceiling in a different manner. Multi-light pendants are especially dramatic as they include a group (often ranging in sizes) of pendants all strung together. And when it is time to turn the lights down low, you'll appreciate putting your new chandelier on a dimmer switch. Light dimmers are relatively easy to install and allow you to control the level of light output. For the living room specifically, dimmable light is a necessity.
