Hallways can be beautifully illuminated by affordable transitional chandeliers that add tone and vibrancy to the darkened curves and corners in your home.

No one should be tickling the tops of their heads on your chandelier! Wider chandeliers (25 to 30 inches in diameter) are used for entryways and dining rooms, while 15- to 20-inch chandeliers are great for bedrooms, hallways and lounge areas. Shop smart, and you can save on your chandeliers like a pro.
