Maryland, Washington, DC & Northern Virginia Lighting Installation
Lighting fixtures aren’t just functional features. While they do serve a very important purpose in terms of lighting your home to make it safe and functional but also to create a pleasant atmosphere, they provide aesthetic value in themselves as well. Installing a chandelier is a great way to improve the aesthetic of your home and provide adequate lighting.
There are all kinds of chandeliers to choose from, but one thing that they all have in common is that they draw the eye – no matter what their size might be.
Why Install a Chandelier?
First of all, they are a great option for providing general lighting. A large chandelier can light up an entire room. And remember, not all chandeliers are ancient antiques – there are modern options that come with dimming capabilities to give you more control.
In addition to providing your general—or ambient—lighting, chandeliers are incredibly effective focal point wherever you hang them as they tend to draw the eye immediately. They are also a great way to add a touch of elegance or even opulence to your interior design.
Chandelier Installation in Any Room
You can use a chandelier in more ways than you might think. The following are just a couple of ideas for where you can install a chandelier in your Maryland home.
- Dining Room – One of the most obvious ways to use a chandelier is by hanging it over your dining room table to strengthen it as the room’s focal point and to create an air of sophistication and elegance.
- Entryway – Create a strong first impression on guests by hanging a chandelier over your home’s outdoor entryway, or show off your new chandelier to neighbors passing by!
- Bathroom – A more unusual place to hang a chandelier is in the bathroom – however, doing so is becoming a popular trend. A chandelier over the bathtub can help to give being in the tub the feeling of being on a throne – and what better way to relax in style?
- Kitchen – Instead of hanging a pair of pendant fixtures over your kitchen’s island, go with a pair of smaller chandeliers in order to spruce up the look of what can sometimes be an ordinary and bland looking kitchen. Be sure to be safe and use proper kitchen wiring.

Choosing the Right Size Chandelier for Your Home
One of the most important steps for choosing the right chandelier is picking the right size. The general rule of thumb is to measure the length and width of the room you’re hanging in and to add those numbers together. The total should be the diameter of the chandelier.
You may decide to use two smaller chandeliers instead of one, or you may be hanging it over a smaller table, in which case the size will need to be smaller.
