Living room identifies your whole apartment, so its interior has to be distinguished, and all its details have to correspond with design concept, creating harmonious atmosphere. But impression even of most expensive and beautiful interior can be ruined, when lighting units, which are main ceiling décor elements, are chosen thoughtlessly.
Living room chandeliers
Just before you start running into the store to buy biggest and most expensive chandelier, try objectively estimate your room dimensions. Lighting units should be proportional to a room’s space. You may want to choose a big chandelier for a large living room with high ceilings. Thus a little chandelier installed in the ceiling middle cannot fit even if it is very original and gorgeous.
If your living room is narrow and long, consider option with installing two smaller chandeliers. This is a very effective design solution, given that light flow distribution will be balanced, and in future this allows dividing living room into several functional zones.
Choose a chandelier to match the style of living room

If your living room is in modern style you have to pick chandelier wisely. Lighting units should be a combination of glass and chrome elements and at the same time should correspond with the style – conservative forms and sharp angles.
