What are the Variations of French Country Chandeliers?

Full of vintage charm and decorative allure, French Country Chandeliers can range from delicate and charming to grandiose and awe-inspiring. The most popular finish options when it comes to French Country decor are typically creamy white, gray, and brown, so choosing a neutral colored chandelier is sure to balance your space while drawing just enough attention to your ceiling. Utilize your chandelier as a complementary piece of decor to offset or blend with the colors within your room. For a light and bright space, a whitewashed wooden chandelier with turned detailing works wonders, while a more dark and romantic space benefits from an ornate fixture dripping with crystal detailing, finished in bronze. Smaller options work best for offices, small bedrooms, and bathrooms, while large styles look best in entryways, bedrooms, and entertainment spaces. Whether you opt for a globe, square, candelabra, or drum-shaped chandelier, 2Modern has you covered in order to ensure your space will be well-lit and well-accented in the French Country style.

To best select a French Country chandelier size for your home, measure the width and length of the space, add these two numbers together and consider the number in inches rather than feet. This number then translates to the ideal diameter of a chandelier that works best to fill your room. In terms of height, a good rule of thumb is 2 to 3 inches of chandelier length per foot of wall height. For example, a room with 15 foot ceilings that is 15 feet wide and 12 feet long can accommodate a chandelier that is 27 inches in diameter and 30 to 45 inches in height. This measuring scale is particularly helpful for selecting a lighting piece that will sit dead center in your room or over a major piece of furniture, such as a sofa or dining table, as a focal point. Keep in mind that on average, it is ideal to hang chandeliers a minimum of 6 and a half feet above the floor to ensure an open space for walking below.
