Chandeliers are the ideal accent to elevate any space in your home. From bedrooms to home offices, chandeliers are suitable for almost any room and can feature a variety of sizes and design styles, such as modern or traditional. Paired with complementary colors and furnishings, they are not only practical but also make a breathtaking first impression.

Explore four ways to transform your new home with our chandelier design ideas featured throughout our Toll Brothers model homes nationwide. Comment below and let us know how you would enhance your new home’s interior with an accented light fixture.


1. Chandeliers add dimension to your living space

Light fixtures are not only functional, but they can also add dimension to open living spaces such as a two-story great room. Select layered or cascading chandeliers to highlight the spaciousness of your living space. As a beautiful display, these pieces provide a warm, welcoming aesthetic and illuminate the area efficiently. Chandeliers offer a new perspective to open-concept living and can even brighten the areas of an open floor plan, such as the kitchen and dining space.

2. An ideal lighting option for everyday spaces

Beauty is often discovered in unexpected places. Warm lighting can create a beautifully soft-lit space that encourages relaxation and increases feng shui in your home, an ideal option for your primary bedroom suite.

Chandeliers provide ambient lighting to soften the aesthetic of a bedroom. Add textured accents and décor to complement the lighting and bring the overall design together. Chandelier placement should be centrally located and moderately sized to create the most desirable impact. Make a statement by choosing a light fixture that reflects your interior style and encourages a calm sleep environment.

3. Light fixtures promote productivity in workspaces

Adequate lighting for a home office is essential for productivity. Strategic light placement should be considered to prevent computer screen glare and provide ample light for work during any time of day. Stay on task with a simple overhead chandelier fixture that contributes to the ambiance of a room. Depending on specific needs, choosing warm or natural lighting encourages concentration; a combination of both overhead and task lighting is essential for workspace activities from day to night. A chandelier creates ambiance in a room and can transform your home office into a functional space that encourages focus and productivity.

4. Elegant lighting ideas for formal spaces

Chandeliers are often the focal point of a room. From the formal dining area to the breakfast nook, overhead lighting defines a dedicated eat-in space and adds a touch of elegance to the décor.

Chandeliers have traditionally been known to be ornate, including crystal and glass, but fixture designs with natural or raw materials are also common for everyday dining areas. When selecting a chandelier for your dining space, consider the placement and size of the table. The chandelier should be centrally located over the midpoint of the table for ideal functionality and desired appearance.
