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.

How to Choose Bedroom Lighting
When it comes to choosing lighting for your bedroom, it can be hard to know where to start. After all, your bedroom is the scene of so many activities, from waking, dressing, and getting ready for your busy day to winding down and resting at the end of it. How do you select versatile and functional lighting for such an important space? Fortunately, it’s possible to address all of your bedroom lighting needs by installing a few different types of lighting.
Start by choosing your overhead lighting. This is your most general-purpose lighting, ideal for the morning as you prepare for work, for the evening as you start to wind down, or for bedroom tasks that require plenty of illumination such as tidying and making the bed. For a dramatic statement you might install a chandelier over the bed. There are seemingly endless bedroom chandelier options to suit a range of interior styles, from modern to traditional and beyond! For a more subtle effect, a flush mount or semi-flush mount light on the ceiling is a great pick as well.
