Your Savoy House chandelier is an elegant addition to any
room in your house. It’s important to hang your chandelier properly so it
remains the focal point of the room without overpowering everything in it.
Where to Put Your
Gone are the days when your chandelier was in the dining
room or other formal rooms. Any interior decorator
tell you that chandeliers have become a hot decorating trend and can be found
in bedrooms, foyers, bathrooms, and living rooms across the nation. This has
led to an explosion in trendy, modern styles so you can find the Savoy House chandelier
that’s perfect for your room.
How to Hang Your
Before you pound your first nail, check to ensure your
ceiling is strong enough to support your chandelier. If the ceiling had previous
water damage or you suspect it may be weak, it may be time to speak to a
professional and replace the dry wall. If you’re having work done, let your
contractor know that you plan on adding a chandelier to the room so proper
precautions can be taken. The last thing you want is to hang that gorgeous
chandelier and have it come crashing down.
It’s important to hang your chandelier at the right height.
If you’re planning on hanging it over a table or kitchen island, the chandelier
should be 30–32” above the table.
If there isn’t a table directly beneath your chandelier, aim
for at least seven feet between the floor and the bottom of your chandelier. If
you live in a house with soaring ceilings or are placing the chandelier in a
two-story room, hang the chandelier nine feet above the floor. Consider where
the windows are. You may want to hang the chandelier higher or lower in
alignment with the window so you can enjoy the beauty and elegance as you
approach your home. A blazing chandelier is a welcoming and stately way to
greet your guests as they walk up your walkway.
It’s also important to consider what you’ll be doing in the
room. If the room is used for homework, crafts, and other projects that need to
be well lit, consider a chandelier that directs the light downwards, like the
Savoy House Argo
. For an area where you’d prefer softer lighting, choose
a chandelier that directs the light up and away from the eye, like the Savoy
In the Bedroom
Chandeliers in the bedroom are a hot modern trend that’s an easy
update for your bedroom. Start by measuring your space. Like any other room,
you need to ensure that the chandelier doesn’t overpower the rest of the
furnishings and that it’s not undersized and gets lost in the space. For
example, a 15 x 19’ room needs a 34” chandelier to feel balanced.
If you have a queen or king-sized bed, use a large
chandelier of 34” or 36” in diameter. If the room has a double bed or a
twin-sized, try a smaller chandelier. Usually 24” diameter chandeliers are the
Before you hang your Savoy House chandelier, measure the
space and consider how the space will be used so your chandelier will fit your
sense of style AND your lifestyle.
