This chandelier looks perfect in our master bedroom - super-sparkly and very bright (a dimmer switch is recommended). The flush mount makes it just right for a room with a lower ceiling or where you won't have a table or other piece of furniture under it to guard against head whacks. My tall husband has full head clearance under this chandelier even in our home with it's relatively low 8 foot ceilings. The petite size of the chandelier works very well in a smaller room or area - I could see this looking lovely in a walk in closet or small entryway, as well as in a bedroom. Installation is a bit tedious, but not terribly difficult. My relatively handy husband was able to put the hardware up in about 15 minutes with a little help from me (I just held it up while he hooked things together). Installing the crystals took a long time (about 40 minutes) because there were so many to hang, but I was expecting this and really didn't mind. I would recommend working out from the middle and putting in the candelabra bulbs after putting the middle drop and the first (innermost) tier. The chandelier was packaged well (actually, the crystals were packed a little too well - they were a pain to get out!), but the included installation diagram is a little bit confusing - as long as you alternate the tear shape and round dangles, you'll be all set. Also, there were no instructions for the electrical portion of the installation, so if you aren't too handy, keep this in mind. Overall, this is a beautiful fixture that looks even prettier than the picture. I had overlooked it for some time, but kept discovering the chandeliers I liked were far too big or low hanging for my space. I'm so glad I decided to take a chance on this one!
