A chandelier is the king of fixtures. Fitting almost everywhere and always adding something more to the space in which it is hanged, it reveals something about the personality of the owner, displaying the taste and the crave for shiny details that enrich our lives in every domain.

Choosing this kind of fixture to hang above the bathtub is becoming more and more common but always pretty stylish, actually, so do feel free to express yourself through the creation of your own design.

Everyone knows that hygiene is not the only purpose of a bathtub, but rather the creation of a relaxing atmosphere. Comfort plays a key role in the making of a bathroom, which has to be a behind the scene part of the house, a private spot devoted to body care. It does not mean that it is forgivable not to think about how to enlighten the strong points of this particular part of the house, though.

The first thing to consider if you want a chandelier above your bathtub is the height of your ceiling. A low ceiling could be quite problematic and in, that case, you may be eager to chose a more suitable lighting fixture, avoiding problems due to the proximity of electricity and water. If you live in a old house, with high ceilings, hanging a chandelier is the best option for you, because chandeliers animate the space, filling in the decorative blanks, every room will look less empty. Be sure to check into  latest local building codes, which vary from a municipality to another. Do not panic if your ceiling is too low, you can always chose a miniature model to hang somewhere else in the room, the result will be stunning as well.

Once you checked with your electrician about feasibility, you can start thinking about what fixture to chose to match your bathroom’s décor. Every style has its own perfect fit, but mixing is not something to fear anymore, on the contrary, it is a growing trend. From modern to country, feel free to experiment new combinations. A modern, minimal bathroom will look amazing with a crystal two tier chandelier, or a country French style one. An antique bronze and alabaster model could be the kick of your black painted walls bathroom for a smooth and super elegant atmosphere.

 Play with colours and shapes and do not be afraid of decorative abundance when choosing your chandelier. The richer the fixture, the richer the space.
