For those who live in small apartments (“small” is of course relative – 500 square feet might seem almost luxurious in popular East Coast urban dwellings, where 2,000 square feet might feel a bit cramped to those used to more elbow room in the West), 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.

Wall Lighting Ideas Suited To Modern Living Rooms

Lighting your living room well will mean that you should be able to create different moods from the various light conditions. When most living spaces are put together, the lighting design can be a bit of an afterthought.

Wall fittings are often at eye level, so you don’t want all the light of the bulb bursting across the room, catching your attention.
