Once you’ve landed on a style, choosing the right size is the next step to finding the perfect chandelier. Choose a chandelier that doesn’t look too big or too small for your space.
For a dining room:
The chandelier should look proportional to the table it’s suspended above, without interfering with the line of sight between people sitting at the table. To achieve this, the width of the chandelier should be about 12 inches narrower than the width of the table and centered over the middle of the table. Experts also suggest making sure the chandelier is at least 4 feet from the walls.
Height is less important than width when choosing a dining room chandelier. However, make sure you don’t have a tall light that prevents seated people from seeing each other. Make sure the bottom of your chandelier is at least 33” above the table.
For a living room or entryway foyer:
To find the right size, choose a chandelier with a height proportional to the height of the ceiling. To do this, count 2” to 3” for every foot of height. So, if you have a vaulted 12-foot foyer, go with a 24” to 36” tall chandelier. To find the width, measure the width and length of the room, add the measurements, then convert to inches to find the correct ratio for width. For example, if a room is 10 feet by 15 feet, pick a 25” wide chandelier.
