Ever thought of using coloured chandeliers in your home? A pop of colour is the perfect way to make a bold style statement and add a little extra something to a plain colour scheme. Our guide to coloured chandeliers shows you how to incorporate coloured lighting into your decor and highlights some of our best examples of coloured chandeliers available at Litecraft.
Bold and bright coloured chandeliers
If you’re not afraid of using bold colours in your decor, these bright beauties are for you. While we often use colourful cushions and decorative accessories to liven up a room, coloured lighting is a fresh new way to do this.
The Marie Therese 5 light chandelier is the perfect way to add colour to your home. This eye-catching multi-coloured chandelier is sure to grab attention and turn heads for all the right reasons. The glamorous gypsy-style chandelier comes in a rainbow of colours including pink, red, blue, green and yellow. Five curved arms are decorated with colourful acrylic pendants for a bohemian finish.
For a chandelier as bright and bold as this one, we suggest using a neutral white or grey backdrop and allowing the chandelier to become the focal point in the room. Pick out colours from the chandelier and look for matching accessories to tie the look together. Or if you’re feeling brave, create a colour clash with bright walls and mismatched accessories.
Prefer a single coloured look? The Marie Therese chandelier also comes in a fabulous plum colour. Crafted from acrylic, it combines a traditional shape with modern elements for a stylish look. The luxurious deep purple finish is on-trend but has a timeless quality that is perfect for summer or winter.
This rich plum chandelier would be a great addition to a glamorous living room or a sumptuous boudoir. Combine it with warm tones of purple and creams to create an inviting aura. Alternatively, pair it with stark black and white which will give your room a bold, contrasting look, letting your coloured chandelier shine.
For a more subtle take on this trend, look for a chandelier with coloured crystals. The Madonna 3 light chandelier is crafted from chrome but finished with a mix of clear and red crystal effect beads and drops. This small amount of red is a great way to add a little extra colour to a room. Whilst we love this romantic red version, the Madonna 3 light chandelier is also available with smoke grey and champagne crystal drops.
Contemporary coloured chandeliers
If your style is more contemporary, take a look at our range of Cygnet coloured chandeliers. Unlike the traditional shape of the Madonna or Marie Therese chandelier, this stunning ceiling light is crafted from glass and features sleek Swan-like curved arms with 12 tiny halogen lights. The Cygnet chandelier is available in a range of colours including black, white and silver, but this red version has the real “wow” factor.
Dark and dramatic chandeliers
If you’re looking for something a little more sophisticated, why not try a dark and dramatic chandelier? Although these black light fittings are not strictly ‘colourful’, they create a bold style statement and stand out from the usual chrome and antique brass chandeliers available.
For a touch of glamour, our favourite Marie Therese is also available in a glossy black acrylic finish with sparkling black beads and drops.
This glamorous chandelier is perfect for creating a dramatic focal point above dining room tables, adding shimmer and sparkle to your dinner parties. The bold silhouette contrasts beautifully against colourful walls for a striking look. Alternatively, keep things simple and chic with white decor, simple accessories and a monochrome theme.
Where to hang a coloured chandelier
A coloured chandelier is perfect for adding a touch of luxury and opulence to your bedroom. Create a boudoir-like feel with a dramatic black chandelier, or keep it bright with bold colours. Hang a chandelier above your bed to illuminate the whole room with sparkling light.
The living room is the perfect place for decorative touches and personal style. Add some character to your lounge with a statement chandelier. A coloured chandelier will not only create a dramatic focal point but will also fill your room with bright light. Hang it in the centre of a room and keep the rest of your decor simple.
Chandeliers create a beautiful focal point in a dining room. They dress up the space and draw the eye upward to make the most of a space. A coloured chandelier is perfect for creating a less formal dinner party atmosphere, adding a touch of fun and quirkiness that is sure to be a talking point. Hang a coloured chandelier above your dining room table for maximum impact.
Greet your guests with an eye-catching coloured chandelier to remember. If your hallway or entrance lacks a little style, a bold chandelier is the perfect way to add interest and colour. An open staircase is the ideal location for a statement chandelier as there is plenty of height for the chandelier to hang without getting in the way.
