How to Size a Chandelier: 3 Easy Steps
A chandelier adds ambiance, style and of course, general lighting to a room, but selecting the right chandelier can be tricky. A small chandelier can easily get lost in a large space and fail to deliver a strong design element, while a large chandelier can overwhelm a small space. The right chandelier is proportional to the height and width of the room.
To choose the right chandelier, you need to consider the diameter, height, and purpose of the room. Here are three tips to help you size a new chandelier.
3 Steps to the Right Chandelier Size
First, determine the width of the chandelier using the following steps:
- Measure the length and the width of the room
- Add the two measurements
- Convert the measurement unit from feet to inches
The converted sum is the ideal diameter of your chandelier. For example, if your dining room is 10' x 18', a chandelier with a 28" diameter is the best fit for your space.
