Don’t be afraid to try a wood chandelier or something that is industrial with edison bulbs. These modern lighting choices are very stylish and right on trend to enhance your space.
What is the correct chandelier size? Decide where the chandelier is going to be installed to determine the size you need. Once you know that, use the following guidelines:
- In a Dining Room: the simple sizing rule is that your chandelier should be about 12 inches narrower than the dining table surface.
- The design should also have at least 4 feet of distance from the room walls.
- Following these guidelines will give you a chandelier that will appear to fill the space without overcrowding it. For small spaces and smaller tables, you may want to try pendant lighting instead.
- In a Living Room or Entryway: for every foot of ceiling height allow 2-3 inches in chandelier height.
- For example, a 9-foot ceiling would require a 27-inch high design.
- To determine the width needed, add the length and width of your room and convert the total to inches.
- For example, a room that’s 12-feet x 14-feet would require a design that’s around 26-inches wide (12 plus 14 gives you the width of 26).
