Professional Design Tips For Hanging Your Chandelier
When Choosing a Chandelier For Your Dining Room
- The chandelier should be about 12" narrower (smaller in diameter) than the width of the table over which it hangs
- When hung, the bottom of the chandelier should be approximately 30 inches above the surface of the dining table to ensure no bumped heads and good illumination
- Pay attention to scale. Bigger is usually better; too often a chandelier can look tiny and be overlooked

- When placing a chandelier in the foyer, take into consideration the height of the ceiling and size of the space. Optimal placement would be at least 9 feet from the floor
- If there's a window above the front door, you may want to center it in the window for maximum curb appeal and aesthetics

- Chandeliers can steal the show or be the elegant finishing touch to any room. Decide how you want yours to work in the room of your choice
