A Lighting Fixture Style That Exudes Luxury

Tessa Neustadt

When it comes to designing a bathroom that doubles as a sanctuary from your daily routine, there are plenty of ways to transform the space into your own personal escape: Collect candles and incense if you love aromatherapy, hang soothing artwork and paint the walls to your liking, or stock up on your favorite bath and wellness products. If you have a taste for the finer things in life, the one piece your at-home spa may be missing is lighting.

While you could opt for a pendant, sconces, or flush mount, a chandelier is a statement piece that can truly make your space stand out. The extravagant light fixture will completely transform your washroom into a luxurious retreat fit for royalty (aka you). Note that bathroom electrical codes are strict, and chandeliers are best suited for ones with high ceilings.

Take a look at these 12 bathroom chandeliers to inspire your next home improvement project.

This bright white bathroom features a classic chandelier to complete the clean look. Though already brimming with natural light, the space is elevated with this elegant light fixture that plays well with the contemporary, fresh design of the rest of the bathroom. It would be all too easy to forget about the rest of the world while gazing at the dreamy print hanging on the wall in the glow of the overhead lighting.

For a modern twist on a classic look, take a page from this bathroom and go for an updated hanging light pendant. The iridescent, purple-hued chandelier fits right in with the unique design of this contemporary bathroom. Also, the way the honeycomb tiles beneath the tub taper off into hardwood flooring is stunning.

Match your bathroom light fixture with your accent color of choice. Here, a black chandelier plays up the black interior french doors and a chic black-and-white bathtub. The contrast between black-and-white design elements works beautifully with the patterned floor tile and pop of color from the potted plant.

Touch of Floral

A traditional chandelier hangs above the tub in this rustic bathroom accented with a wooden window frame and side table. The bronze light fixture fits well with the brown and cream colors of the intricate floor tile. Along with a statement chandelier, flowers are the perfect accessory for any washroom. They keep the space looking and smelling fresh.

A chandelier in a location where it doesn't hang above a bathtub. If you have a walk-in shower, add a dose of glamour with a light fixture hung above the sink. Here, matching bronze accent pieces work together to add something extra to the white bathroom. Get the look by hanging a mirror and pendant made of similar materials across from each other.

Translucent Pendant

A clear light fixture is just the thing for this moody blue bathroom. Because the walls are already bursting with color, a clear glass chandelier is a divine way to add another décor element without overpowering the room with too many different colors and textures.
