Created in many shapes, sizes, and styles, chandeliers can add charm and elegance to a dining room. Whether it is the primary light source or paired with layered lighting throughout the room, chandeliers are the perfect statement piece to make your dining room pop.
- When determining the size of a chandelier based on room size, add the length and width of the room in feet, then replace feet with inches.
- The chandelier should be at least 12” smaller than the width of the dining room table.
- In rooms with 8’ ceilings, chandeliers should hang about 30” above the table.
- For ceilings over 8‘, add 3” to the space between the chandelier and the table for each foot of ceiling height.
Tip: Your chandelier should be centered over your dining room table, even if your table is not centered in the room.
