Chandelier over the bed
November 19, 2012
I would like to hang a chandelier over my queen bed. I really don't want it towards the head of the bed so I was thinking center, or foot of the bed. Any advice?

Feng shui-wise, i'm not a fan of large lighting pieces directly over the bed... A little unsettling thinking it could fall at some point (as realistic or unrealistic as that may be). Best location would not be directly over the bed IMO...even if it may look nice, you want the room to be comfortable and "feel" good too.

Hang it more towards the end of the bed. If you hang it too close to the headboard, when laying it bed it will be too bright when laying down.

I had a medium sized chandelier in the bedroom one time and loved it! The wiring for the old fixture was in center of room and my room was square. So it ended up hanging a little beyond the foot of the bed....guess it would also depend on how small your room is?

the essentials inside
I agree - foot of the bed.

As an example, I've attached a photo that we've featured as one of our Rooms Worth a View at the essentials inside. You can see the whole view here:

Thank you for the advice. I was thinking somewhere between center and end of the bed. The room is approx 12'x13' with a vaulted ceiling (8' high on the low end).

depends on the dimension of your room, what size of the chandelier to choose
