Placement Ideas for Chandeliers
Once you decide on the style that you like, deciding where to put it is also something to think about. Smaller beach chandeliers make great fixtures for bathrooms or over kitchen sinks. Medium sized chandeliers work well in bedrooms, hallways and over kitchen islands. If you’re really going for a statement piece, put your new large beach themed chandelier in the foyer, a large living room or over your dining table.
Prices vary greatly depending on the size and material that your beach chandelier is made out of, but here’s a general guide to help give you a few price points:
- Small chandeliers made of sea glass or seashells start around $100 and go up from there.
- Small chandeliers made from coral start at a few hundred dollars and go up. Large coral chandeliers are oftentimes priced above $1,000.
- Medium chandeliers run from around $300 all the way up to $1,000 or more.
- Large chandeliers are going to be the most expensive regardless of the material that they are made from and typically start around $500 and can go up to several thousand dollars.
While beach chandeliers may seem expensive, many of them are sourced from natural materials that are unique and hard to find and source. If budget is a concern, you can buy some that are created from man made materials such as glass and metal. For example, a chandelier made from metal fish would be a cute way to dress up any room in your home.
