As a REALTOR, I come across tons of great advice and tips that I often share with my first-time home buyers. That's not really the case when it comes to first-time home sellers. Yes, you can find
Make a Statement: Tips for Choosing a Dining Room Chandelier
As a REALTOR, I'm lucky to have the opportunity to tour many homes in Steiner Ranch and throughout the greater Austin area on a weekly basis. Without fail, there's always at least one home that stops me in my tracks as soon as I walk through the front door - and it's usually because of a dining room chandelier! Wait...what?!
Not only can an oh-so-fabulous dining room chandelier make a bold statement and create a lasting impression on buyers; but, it can also set the decor vibe for the rest of the home and give you an idea of the style you might expect to see throughout. Beyond a lasting first impression, though, a dining room chandelier should also add function. That's what we'll tackle in Part 4 of my blog post series.
I've lived in my current home for about 8 years and I'll admit, I've changed the dining room chandelier, not once, not twice, but yes, THREE times! Each change reflects how my personal design taste has evolved over the years I've lived there. That said, it's not just about choosing the right style that fits you. You also need to consider the following: what's the right size? what's the right height? Do I need a dimmer and/or recessed lights too? what type of light bulbs should I use? All these questions (and more) are addressed in this Houzz article that provides 5 pro tips for choosing a dining room chandelier. I especially like that the article includes helpful diagrams and illustrations.
