Chandeliers for beach houses: guide to the right choice

Chandeliers for beach houses

Choosing chandeliers for the beach house is an important step in an overall interior design project.

For the home where you spend the vacation period, it is good that the lighting should be designed to provide a relaxing atmosphere. The structure and design of the chandeliers should be able to enhance the qualities of the space and be consistent with the context in which the house is placed.

What to consider when choosing chandeliers for seaside homes?

The rooms to be lit in a beach house are diverse, and each of them meets a specific need. If in the living area the priority is to have a large and bright space in which to relax, in the sleeping area it is necessary to have chandeliers capable of creating an atmosphere conducive to rest. Outdoors, on the other hand, there is a need for lamps and chandeliers that can not only illuminate, but also decorate the space in an original way.

The size of the room is the first factor to consider. In fact, the size and style chosen for the chandelier must be consistent with both the square footage of the room and the height of the ceilings. Pendant chandeliers are a good option for beach houses with high ceilings, while if the house has standard or low ceilings, as is the case in an attic, for example, it is preferable to choose ceiling lights.

To achieve a good result, it is also useful to consider how each room relates to the other rooms in the house. By taking into account the flow of movements that occur in the home, you can make sure that the succession of styles chosen for chandeliers is consistent.

What are the best chandeliers for seaside homes?

In decorating the beach house, you can take two paths: you can decide to furnish the space with elements that recall the marine environment, or you can opt for neutral and essential furnishings. In the first case, recalling the atmospheres related to the sea can be done through the choice of colors, materials or design.

For chandeliers to be included in a navy-style home, for example, you can go for pendant models with blue fabric lampshades. On the other hand, those who have chosen to include just a few references to the navy style in the room may decide to furnish with chandeliers that have shapes inspired by the sea, such as stars or shells.

A rather popular recent trend in interior design is to create furniture items with salvaged elements. In recent years, several programs designed to clean up beaches and seabeds have been organized. From the materials collected during these initiatives, unique designer chandeliers with special meaning can be created.

Pendant chandeliers made from wood salvaged from beaches are a perfect example of design solutions that are consistent with the context in which the beach house fits. In addition, these models give the decor a simple and natural look. Other possible solutions include chandeliers made from seashells and those created by reusing ropes or old fishing nets.

Taking inspiration from these elements to design special chandeliers is also a way to witness and strengthen the connection with the land.

And finally: what types of chandelier to choose for beach houses?

To light the living area and hallways, pendant chandeliers are often the best option. Thanks to the variety of models, you can give a personal touch to living rooms, kitchens and open-plan living areas with great ease.

In bedrooms, you can let your imagination run wild and find more original solutions as well. Between ceiling lights and wall lamps, and with the help of other furniture elements such as rugs and accessories, you can build a voyage of discovery of aquatic creatures or adventures aboard galleons and sailing ships.

Outdoors, depending on the size of the space to be lit, one can use floor lamps, wall lamps and lanterns. In case fixed structures are used, it is important to check that the material from which lamps and chandeliers are made resist moisture and saltiness. Among the best solutions are steel and crystal, but also some types of plastic used in design.

Taking the time to choose the best chandeliers for the beach house allows you to create a cozy environment to live in. Cozy not only during the summer months, but whenever you feel like carving out a relaxing moment a stone’s throw from the beach.
