Black Crystal Chandelier


As mentioned in an earlier post, I bought a black crystal chandelier for my bedroom. I originally wanted to use it as a bedside light, but that placement looked odd.

I decided the chandelier needed to be either in the center of the room or in a corner. Putting it in the center would mean running the electrical cord across the ceiling, which would not look good. So corner it was! Accounting for doors and furniture, the corner next to my dresser was the only option.

I hung the chandelier centered on the corner ceiling tile. I ran the cord a short distance across the ceiling to the corner and then down through a small plastic cord channel.

I then adhered the channel into the corner and painted it to match the walls.

  1. This placement is really good, and it suits your drawers really well to be accompanied by a chandelier!

  6. It looks gorgeous! I love the placement and I completely agree that once you paint the cord, it will disappear against your wall. Spectacular choice.

    1. Thank you! Those paintable cord channels are awesome for houses with no overhead lights or oddly placed outlets. My house features both. ;)

  7. Nicely done, Bane! It looks great in that corner. Amazing how the same placement but with different furniture underneath makes all the difference, isn't it? I must investigate cord channels - this is the first I've heard of them. Obviously I'm not spending enough time in Home Depot. ;)
