I love how chandeliers add a touch of elegance to a dining room. In my Amazon search here are the best crystal chandeliers for the dining room that I found.
I tried to include varying styles from traditional to more modern as I haven't quite decided what I want. I also avoided the more trendy styles keeping in mind that whatever I choose I don't want it to look dated in a few years. Lastly but most important I opted for very affordable choices as the prices can sometimes be very high.
As a side note, I would not use halogen lights. They burn too hot. My best recommendation are LED lights, they're safer and last longer.
This chandelier features a more modern style with a lovely chrome shade weighing in total about 10 lbs. It requires four 60 watt incandescent bulbs and it is UL listed. The chain is about 30 inches long but it can be adjusted to any length you wish.
Customer reviews rave about it looking beautiful in the bedroom and living room but complain about inadequate instructions regarding the assembling.
This classic beauty features genuine crystal, both Swarovski crystal strings and European crystal prisms for extra sparkle effect. The image displays lovely E12 Candelabra 40 watt flame-tip bulbs but make note they are not included. It is also compatible with many other types of bulbs, such as, energy saving bulbs, LED, halogen and dimmer ones.
The chain is adjustable in length. It measures about 24" in diameter, 47" in height and 27" in width.
Customers report allowing yourself a couple of hours to assemble and an extra helper.
If you're looking for dramatic effect, this is the chandelier for you. It has a solid metal frame and acrylic crystals and beads of high quality. All you need to do is direct connect it to a ceiling junction box. If you wish to turn it into a swag light with a 14 ft. cord and plug, you can purchase the Plug-n Conversion Kit. The hanging chain adjusts up to 24 inches long.
Weighing in at 6.5 lbs., it has a diameter of 23" and height of 27".
Six 40 watt or E12 chandelier bulbs are required but not included.
Last but not least, this is my first choice for my dining room. Done in an overall stainless steel/ chrome finish frame, it features high-quality K9 crystals. You will need eight 25W E12 incandescent bulbs which happily are included. LED bulbs are also compatible but unhappily, not included.
The 70" pendant wires can be adjusted. It measures 10" deep, 10" high and 39.5" wide. The weight is about 28 lbs.
Again, reserve ample time for assembling as well as extra help.
