Similarly, you may ask, how do you measure the height of a chandelier?
Regarding chandelier height, we recommend 3" for every foot of space between the floor and ceiling. You can find this number by multiplying the height of your ceiling (in feet) by three. For example, if your ceilings are 8' high, your chandelier should be 24" tall (8 x 3 = 24).
One may also ask, how high should light be above table? Standard Height Recommendation The generally accepted rule for hanging dining room chandeliers is that the bottom of the fixture should hang between 30 and 36 inches above the top of the dining table. This range assumes you have an 8-foot ceiling.
Correspondingly, can a chandelier be too big?
A chandelier that is too large can easily overpower a room and its inhabitants; one that is too small becomes insignificant and decreases the perceived value of the entire space. By following a few interior design guidelines for choosing the correct size, you will maximize the impact of the fixture.
How big should entryway chandelier be?
