Rectangular Chandeliers

Updated

With their rectilinear form and considerable length, rectangular chandeliers are the ideal lighting fixtures for dining spaces with elongated and long dining tables. They also bring a chic character when placed atop a kitchen counter. The illumination, coming from multiple bulbs or lighting strips, also provide even and consistent distribution. While most rectangle chandeliers have wood frames paired with vintage bulbs, you can also find ones with sparkling crystal adornments as well as minimalist geometrical combinations.

Designer Advice:

Perfect for rustic interiors with a vintage touch. Best used on top of kitchen island counters and long rectangular dining tables.

Designer Advice:

Modern with a transitional character, this piece is available in antique silver and brass dust. We can see this being used in contemporary dining and kitchen interiors, especially ones with pastel or cool-colored walls. For more traditional spaces, we recommend hanging them at a pendant height, while more contemporary interiors will benefit from hanging them in an almost semi-flushed installation.

Buying Guide

Chandeliers aren’t only foyer statement pieces. Rectangular chandeliers come in a range of styles, from those with a retro glass fringe to others with a minimalist look that complements any Scandi-style living space.

You can put this light fixture above the rectangular or oval table in your dining room or kitchen. The oblong design means you won’t have to worry about guests sitting in the dark at the far reaches of the table. The light from this type of chandelier spreads across the room, bathing everyone in a warm, cozy glow.

If you want to make a statement with your rectangular chandelier, place it above your kitchen island. The model’s stylish framework and decorative details provide a striking contrast with the more functional and ergonomic look of your kitchen cabinets and butcher’s block countertop.

Install a rectangular chandelier in a room with a complementary interior decor. For example, if your chandelier has exposed metallic piping and suspended light fixtures, install it in an industrial-style living space. On the other hand, if it is constructed with reddish hardwood, with decorative finishes and accents, place the chandelier in a living room that has a French country theme.

Some rectangular chandeliers are easy to adjust with a ladder and a little planning. Not all chandeliers are designed to have an adjustable height, so you might have to cut the chain or downrod to size or work with a professional to modify it.

Some chandeliers include multiple downrods of different lengths that you can unscrew and swap out as needed. Others use sections of chain that you can hook into place at the desired height. Both of these require you to remove the chandelier from the ceiling temporarily for adjustments, but this is relatively straightforward, depending on the weight of your rectangular chandelier.

Some chandeliers are cumbersome and challenging to adjust, especially if your home has high ceilings. In this case, you might want to hire a professional to help.

Yes! Rectangular chandeliers can be modern. When many of us hear the term ‘chandelier,’ it’s easy to think of older pieces that are large and rather dated.

Today’s chandeliers are geometric and tend to lean either art deco or industrial, with lots of textured materials and either glam metal or shiny glass accents.

Hanging a modern rectangular chandelier over a rectangular dining table can look very balanced and symmetrical, too, making for a cohesive look in your dining space.
