Things to Consider When Choosing a Chandelier –


It is very important to consider your ceiling height when choosing a chandelier, otherwise lighting can disturb your eyes. In fact, lighting can be harsh on your eyes if the chandelier was not set at a proper height.

The general thumb rule is you should maintain a minimum 30inches gap from the top of your table to the bottom of your chandelier to stay comfortable. To make it more detailed for you, multiply your room height with 2.5 to know what height chandelier you should choose for your dining room.

If the room height from floor is about 12 feet, then the height of the chandelier should be 30 inches. (12 x 2.5 = 30)

Room Size

You should consider the size of your dining room as well while choosing a chandelier. Remember, lighting may not be sufficient if you choose a small chandelier for a very big dining room. Similarly, when you choose a large chandelier for a small dining room, the lighting can dominate everything. In fact, it looks very uncomfortable. Hence, you have to choose the right size when choosing a chandelier for your dining room.

Dining Table Size

You should also consider the size of your dining table while choosing a chandelier. For example, if your table width is 32inches then the diameter of your chandelier should be 16 inches to 21inches.  Don’t know how to calculate it? Don’t worry! Here is the formula for you.

32 inches (table width) x 0.5 = 16inches

32 inches (table width) x 0.75 = 21inches

By this time, you would have understood that the chandelier which you choose should be at least ½ or 2/3rd of your dining table.


Choose high quality chandeliers to save your money in the long run. Chandeliers made with cheap materials generally become dull within a matter of a few months, and buying such products would be a waste of your money and time.
