Smaller chandeliers aren’t just used in small powder rooms. People are treating their bedroom suites as more luxurious personal spaces with elaborate sitting areas and bathroom areas, so it is not unreasonable to consider mini chandeliers for the bedroom too. Mini chandeliers add a new sense of intimacy to small rooms and to corner spaces and alcoves of larger ones. These compact chandeliers are 9-12 inches in diameter to slip easily into tight spaces. For added impact, consider grouping them together or add multiple ones over a kitchen island. Mini chandeliers also work in more modest homes or rooms with 8 ft. ceilings.
