Bathroom Lighting Ideas

The easiest way to upgrade your bathroom’s look without spending a fortune is to focus on small changes that will make a huge difference. Making small, yet dramatic, changes to your bathroom’s lighting can change the way the entire room looks. While it might not strike you as immediately obvious, a crystal chandelier might be exactly the upgrade your bathroom is in need of. Read on for more
bathroom lighting tips.

Bathroom Lighting Ideas:

Embrace The Power of The Dimmer Switch: Nearly every modern crystal chandelier can be wired to work with a dimmer switch. The ability to choose the level of lighting for your bathroom offers a host of decorating possibilities. By keeping lights low, you can bathe your bathroom in a soft glow that’s guaranteed to make even the most outdated bathrooms seem grand. For those with sparkling new fixtures, flooding the room with light effectively adds a level of drama to your bathroom and showcases your hard work.
Choose A Focal Point: Use your chandelier to create a focal point to your bathroom. By installing an elegant chandelier in your favorite part of the room, you are effectively drawing eyes to that portion of the room (and away from other areas you might not be as fond of). Use your lighting fixture to showcase what you love and draw attention away from what you don’t.
Experiment With Bulb Color: Today’s light bulbs come in a range of colors. No longer are you stuck with the traditional white light options. Browse your local lighting store for colored bulb options and experiment with different options. With a little trial and error, you’re sure to find the hue that best showcases your bathroom.




Step 1: Make Jump Rings
Note: Since my chandelier has open, curved ends, I was able to make jump rings and just slide them onto the chandelier.  If your chandelier doesn’t have an area where you can slide them on, you will have to make the jump rings directly onto your chandelier.
o    Find an item to use as a mandrel that has a diameter large enough to slide over your chandelier.  The ends of my chandelier are large and flat, so my jump rings are extra large so that they could fit over the end of the chandelier.
o    Use tape to mark a spot around which you will bend the wire.  This will help ensure that all of your jump rings are a consistent size.
o    Hold the wire with your thumb and wrap tightly around the mandrel, overlapping slightly.
o    Cut the excess making sure that you use the flat side of the wire cutters, not the pointed, so that you don’t end up with a pointed end that could scratch your chandelier.
o    If you use pliers that have ridges on them, be sure to wrap them in tape so that they don’t scratch the coating off of your wire.

o    Step 2: Determine Length of Crystal Chain
o    Decide how much drape you want each of the strands to have and count the number of crystals so that you can ensure each strand has the same number.  Be sure to leave the original silver jump rings attached to each end of your strand, as these are what you’ll use to attach to the jump rings you made.

o    Step 3: Attach
o    Slide the crystal chain’s jump ring onto the one you made and attach your jump ring to the chandelier along each arm.
   Step 4: Additional Crystals

Once I was finished, I decided to add two additional types of crystals for a little extra bling!  Around the circumference, I added these prism pendants purchased from sunwe

I also stopped by my local antique store and found a large crystal that I could hand from the bottom of my chandelier.
And that’s how I managed to move my chandelier from Italy to France on a budget! 

I like that it now fits better with my other decor, but should I ever decide to change my style, I can just remove the crystals.  It also solves another issue that I’ve had with my chandelier in that the crystals sit lower and thus make the chandelier feel closer to the table.  The chandelier was not installed at the right height and was just a bit too high off the table, which made it feel disconnected.  With the crystals attached, the bottom of the chandelier is now 34″ off the table and feels much better.  {As a side note, a good height distance for a chandelier is 30″-36″ above the table surface.  I wish I had known that 10 years ago!} Pay attention to more referencehttp://www.worldchandeliers.com/customer-service2/

I have a few extra crystals left over, one of which I’ve already turned into a bookmark.




We have a large chandelier in our dining room that I love, but decided that it wasn’t exactly my style.  Since I still like the chandelier and it works just fine, I didn’t want the expense of buying and installing something new, especially when a small DIY project was all that was needed!

·         We purchased the Florence chandelier from Lamps Plus almost 10 years ago.  I have always loved the size and the details of this light fixture, particularly the faux drip candles.  When I bought this, I was in my Italian phase and it went perfectly with my large trestle table and hand-carved Mexican leather chairs.  But in recent years, I’ve started adding more delicate touches to my home and suddenly, this fixture seemed a bit out-of-place in my dining room.

Quite some time ago I was browsing the Ballard Designs catalog and noticed these magnetic crystal chains that could be used to embellish an existing light fixture.  I loved the idea, but not the price! 

I have also seen boxes of loose crystals from old chandeliers at the antique fair and have thought about how I might be able to use those, but I’ve never found enough matching crystals and never any that could be used for the base chains. Then while browsing Michaels, I figured out a way to move my chandelier from Italy to France on a budget!
