Sizing Your Chandelier

  
  
  
  
  
  

To size a chandelier for your dining room, or to be the focal point of your space, measure the length and width of the room and add those figures together. The sum, converted to inches, will equal the diameter of the correct-sized chandelier.

Chandelier Size

Foyer SizingThe right light fixture in your foyer will create a welcoming atmosphere while providing you with the general light you need to greet guests and assure a safe passage into your home

WHEN MEASURING: If the resulting measurement (room length+width, converted to inches) seems inappropriate due to the size of your table, size your chandelier three quarters the width of your table.

TIP: In most cases, the bottom of your chandelier should sit approximately 30"-32" above the table top.

TIP: When determining whether to hang a flush, semi-flush, or multi-tiered chandelier in your foyer, be advised that the bottom of the fixture should be at least 7' from the floor.

TIP: For two-story foyers, if there is a window above the front door, center the chandelier so it can be seen from outside.

TIP: If your foyer is extra-large, you may also want to add sconces. Sconces should be installed 60" from the floor and 6'-8' apart.
