Lighting is a must-have in every home. Instead of taking up floor space with a lamp, a chandelier can be a stunning alternative to achieve maximum lighting in any room. Chandeliers come in all design styles from modern to romantic. Once your ideal chandelier is found you shouldn’t automatically think to place it over your kitchen table, but consider some unique spaces throughout your home such as the bedroom, office, or dare we say the bathroom. Not sure if this is a good idea? Check out these eight unexpected locations to hang chandeliers.
The Guest Bed
Guest bedrooms are too often minimal, but they’re really a great place to showcase your decor style for guests to enjoy. This beautiful beaded addition would be perfect in a beach house, but anyone with a home by water (or dreams of one) will love it, too.
