Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Chandelier
Today there are 1000s of chandeliers from which to choose. Technology has really opened up so many possibilities. No matter what your style, there is definitely a chandelier to match. Here is how-to select the perfect dining room chandelier.
To begin, decide on a style. Chrome and glass chandeliers set a modern atmosphere; a crystal chandelier is usually considered more traditional, while iron can have an industrial edge. Whatever you choose, make sure you really like it. This choice is an extension of your style and memories will be made around, or in this case, under it.
Now, determine the chandelier size. Here are two easy ways-this first is to measure the length and width of the room. Add those together. Now, convert this number to inches.
The second way is to select a chandelier that is three quarters the width of your dining table.
As a general rule the bottom of the fixture should hang between 30" and 36" from the tabletop. For your ceiling higher than 8' hang the chandelier a little higher.
