A Guide to Bathroom Chandeliers
Imagine your bathroom being more than just the room where you complete all of your personal grooming. Picture a room with a luxurious soaker tub beneath a grand chandelier. With a few easy steps, your bathroom can become the perfect oasis, complete with luxurious lighting that is more commonly being seen in interior design. Here is a guide to bathroom chandeliers.
Calculate the Perfect Fit
Before purchasing a chandelier, ensure that your bathroom is the correct height and that the space you wish to install it in is large enough. The minimum height that a room can be to comfortably hang a chandelier is 7 feet. Measuring the space beforehand will allow you to make the correct decision on which type of chandelier you wish to install.
Before making a decision on the type of chandelier you would like to install, it is important to consider whether or not your bathroom ceiling has adequate structural support to hold the chandelier in place. First, ensure that the electrical box is compatible for the weight of your chandelier. Most boxes that are made for heavy fixtures will have a special brace that extends to the adjacent joists in your ceiling for extra support. If the box has the brace, it will be enough support for a heavy chandelier. If not, you can buy them at your local hardware store such Home Depot. and easily install them. Once you have the support brace installed, your bathroom will be ready for the installation of your luxurious new chandelier.
Choose the Right Design
A chandelier is a unique way of adding that extra luxurious touch to your bathroom, so it is essential that you choose the right design to suit your needs. There are many different styles of chandeliers, with each one emitting a different kind of lighting. To assist you in your decision, here are some examples of the different styles of chandeliers:
