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.

  1. 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.

  1. Round Dining Table 

    Long, 12-person dining tables get all the chandelier fun. Think of your smaller, round kitchen or breakfast nook table as a perfect placement for a chandelier, too! Something about a striking piece like this one makes even casual family meals feel special.

  1. Over A Bed

    Say goodbye to that lamp on your nightstand by replacing it with a chandelier directly over your bed. A woven basket chandelier can provide a much needed light for late night reading and serve as the perfect contrast in a classically designed room.
