Baby nursery chandeliers are lovely and adequate lighting in any nursery is a must for the sake of your baby's safety. Replacing those boring ceiling fixtures and sconces with themed chandeliers and light fixtures is not necessary, but WOW do they ever draw attention.
The minute your friends come in to your child's room, their eyes will be drawn to the source of light and THEN they will admire the rest of the nursery. Why not knock their socks off with a fabulous one of a kind light fixture for kids right off the bat?
A capiz shell chandelier is a less formal type of ceiling light that will move with each passing breeze.
A baby girl's pink chandelier with shades covered in ruffles and bows, beaded with crystals and beads are a popular choice of moms whose dream is the most feminine, girly girl nursery that she can afford.
Cheeky monkeys are a good choice for a jungle nursery or other monkey themes.
For the French country themed room, a colorful french rooster chandelier will fit and if you change the decor, you may be able to re-locate it to the breakfast room.
GO WESTERN For mothers of baby boys who might think that nursery chandeliers are not for you, there are some lovely western cowboy chandeliers that are great for that rough and ready cowboy nursery theme that you have planned. If you have the available space, an antler chandelier or a wagon wheel may be the ticket! Rustic style nursery chandeliers will blend nicely with lots of outdoorsy themes. If you know a hunter, talk him out of some of his hunting trophies and wire up your own custom nursery chandelier if you are skilled in electrical wiring! Wire several sets of antlers together and weave some twinkle lights through them if you aren't comfortable with do it yourself nursery chandeliers!
If deer horns are not your cup of tea, animal prints can dress up the most basic nursery chandeliers. Animal print chandelier lampshades such as zebra or leopard print lampshades are very popular in jungle theme rooms and look so modern with a set of zebra print crib bedding or a zebra rug.
Gone are the days when decorative lighting's only place is over the formal dining room table. Lighting is one of the newest areas to explore in baby bedroom decorating ideas. Decorative nursery night lights and table lamps all have a unique purpose in lighting as well as decorating the baby's room.
If you have a huge nursery with a vaulted ceiling you will want a larger ceiling fixture. For those of us with champagne taste on a lesser budget, there are some cheap chandeliers that will work just fine. Contemporary crystal mini chandeliers will fit nicely in most apartment size bedrooms without making the room look too fussy or crowded. And if you can't afford crystal, a multicolor plastic chandelier may work just fine!
When shopping for the perfect chandelier, for goodness sake don't go off looking specifically for kids chandeliers. Use your imagination and play off of your nursery décor. Don't duplicate! Compliment your theme! Here are some ideas:
Sea Shell Beach Theme Chandeliers
Polka Dot Shades for a French Poodle Nursery theme
Cowboy Boots for a Cowboy or Cowgirl Nursery Theme
Tea Cup Chandelier for an English Garden Theme
A gothic chandelier to set off the Medieval Bedding and Room Theme
For instance, if you have a Minnie or Mickey Mouse nursery theme, don't be deluded into thinking that the chandelier you choose must have shades with images of Disney cartoon characters all over them in order for them to work! Think about the colors associated with this pair. Black, white and red come to my mind. So, it would not be a bad idea to get a simple black wrought iron candle style chandelier with white shades. Embellish those plain Jane white shades with some red pom pom or snowball trim. Get the picture? The same nursery color schemes and combinations would work with a ladybug nursery theme!
If you have formal nursery furnishings, hanging crystal chandeliers tinted to match your color scheme would be fabulous. A black chandelier with artfully placed strings of good imitation pearls or beads may work.
Of course you wouldn't want to damage, deface or use craft paint on a lovely Swarovski crystal lighting fixture even if you bought it at a discount, wholesale or used. But, if you find a vintage hanging fixture that has seen better days with a little time, you can bring back its glory days with a little time and patience. Once the wiring checks out use your crafting skills to create a unique nursery ceiling accessory beyond compare!
