This morning I flipped through some lovely decorating suggestions on my favorite site Apartment Therapy. They were sharing the idea of hanging a crystal chandelier over your bathtub. Yay for crystal chandeliers!
We are a big fan of crystal chandeliers in the bathroom. If you want to add a bit of luxury to your bathroom or step up the romance in your master suite, simply add a crystal chandelier. And there is no better way to impress your guests than showing them to a powder room made beautifully dramatic with a crystal chandelier.
If you are placing a chandelier near a tub, there are a few safety and building code issues so make sure you check all of your local codes to keep your family safe.
Once you are in the clear, simply choose the chandelier you love. There is no need to worry about the size of the chandelier as long as it gives you the floor and tub clearance you require. Any width will do. Most people prefer a smaller chandelier – 18″ wide or smaller, but length and total lights will dictate the right chandelier. Be vigilant when choosing cheap chandeliers as many of them don’t allow for more than 15 watts per socket. Unless you have plenty of recessed lights, you will want your chandelier to provide plenty of light. Install a dimmer for a relaxing retreat.
