Great Chandelier Options for Small Apartments

For those who live in small apartments, one consensus is probably universal: space is prime.

Not only do pieces within a small apartment need to be hard-working in function, but they also need to double as representations of style because, let’s face it, there’s not a lot of extra room to make up the difference should a discrepancy arise.

Here are several small spaces in which chandeliers play a key role in defining or highlighting the apartment’s unique style while still providing what a chandelier is meant for: functional light.

Just because a space is traditionally small and casual, it doesn’t mean it can’t benefit from being dressed up and accentuated with a chandelier. This all-white flowing one is the perfect balance of making a statement with simple dignity.

Living doesn’t get more compact (and, forcibly, well-edited) than when it’s restrained to an urban studio apartment in which sleeping, eating, working, and relaxing must all take place. Thus, a gorgeous chandelier is an ideal choice for providing functional light and doubling as a sculptural piece.

Scandinavian style is known for its bright-white simplicity. Wooden floors ground this white space, but as the virtually only “color” in the space, the floors require a balancing element. A simple clear-glass funnel pendant chandelier over the small dining table provides an understated element of style, while the black base and cord inherently draw the eye upward.

Small apartments are prime candidates for deep, rich color on the walls. It’s because of the smaller size of the space that the use of such color isn’t overwhelming; rather, it’s inspiring and cozy. In such an instance, a metallic chandelier might be just the thing – it provides sufficient shine, whether the light itself is on or off, to brighten the closed-in space, and details the upper third visual plane.
