How to size your chandelier?
The chandelier is a visual focal point, so you don’t desire to choose the wrong size. The chandelier size will depend on room size. A too-small chandelier gets swallowed and an extra-large one looks overpowering. So, learn how to size a chandelier before you go shopping.
The diameter of the chandelier
The length and width of the room have to be added in feet but treat its total to get diameter in inches. For example, room size 10 ft. by 8 ft. means 10 feet + 8 feet = 18” in diameter.
Ceiling height is also considered to get an ideal size lighting fixture. Generally, ceiling height is 8 feet. The chandelier will be 20 to 24 inches in height. It means to multiply the height in feet by 2.5 or 3 inches to get an ideal hanging fixture height.
If the fixture is more than one ……..
You can opt for two same chandeliers. For calculating the diameter of two fixtures use, half-length and add it to the width. For example, room length is 20 feet and the width is 18 feet. Diameter of 2 chandeliers = L [half] + W = 10 feet + 18 feet = 28”.
In both spaces, chandeliers have to be the focal point. The above guidelines are helpful but you can differ. Choose an aesthetic chandelier for the hallway as it sets the tone of the house. Color scheme and style have to blend with the whole house. As the hallway does not have a purpose, the light fixture can be extravagant.
For the dining room
The dining table is the core, so the light fixture effect has to complement it. Generally, the chandelier has to be ½ of table size in diameter and hung 3 to 4 feet above, so that you can see one another across the table.
