When to use it? Try two chandeliers if your room needs a little more of an architectural punch or a little more drama.Two chandeliers are typically a more formal, traditional look that I think people tend to shy away from with our less formal lifestyles. I love that most of my clients are trying to “de-formalize” their dining rooms and create dining atmospheres that are more inviting and comfortable and less “precious”. In doing so, however, I think some rooms lose a little style. One great way to add more style to a casual dining room is with two chandeliers.
What should you be careful of? 1. Try to make sure your chandeliers aren’t too large for the table and the space. Cut out an approximate width of the chandelier in cardboard and have someone hold them both up so you can see what they look like. I could have posted quite a few double chandelier images of what not to do, but I like to keep it positive, so I won’t. You’ll know it when you see it. 2. This probably goes without saying, but two chandeliers go best with a rectangular or oval table.
