Shabby chic chandelier – Usually, chandeliers are hung above dining tables, they can be hung anywhere. Above a seating arrangement coffee table and sofa or near a reading chair are two other possibilities. A lamp hanging in an entrance or hallway can look beautiful, too. Select the right size for the space. If the space has 20-foot ceilings and will be hung above a dining table, pick up a large spider. If the space has 8-foot ceilings and a small table, use a small chandelier.
The spider should be at eye level when standing, which translates to around 30 to 39 inches above the table. This depends on your height, of course; feel free to move it more or less. If the ceiling is high and the spider very wide, it may seem better moved higher, so as not to obstruct the vision. A lower hanging shabby chic chandelier can create a better light and a feeling of intimacy.
In the hallways, hang the shabby chic chandelier near the ceiling, unless the ceiling is too high. With the seating arrangement of the seats, the height of the chandelier depends on taste. Twenty-five watt bulbs are enough for most chandeliers, because most spiders have at least four bulbs. Be careful when using the new high efficiency bulbs; Make sure that the existing lamp covers fit over the new style of the bulb.
