Chandelier Size – How to Determine the Right Chandelier Size for Your Room

          Happy Holiday Season 2015 to all! 

Hope you are all  sharing a wonderful dinner with your family and friends on this Thanksgiving day! 

With the Holiday season  upon us, Mikael and I have had several inquires about how to determine what size chandelier is right for your room? This is a great question and one we hear over and over. 

With the Holiday's, come all size surprises!

We feel that an educated consumer will feel more confident if they can do their own research before they start searching for that unique chandelier that expresses who they are! 

A chandelier is often the focal point in a dining room, so it's important to get a dining room chandelier that not only works well with your décor but is also the right size.

While there are no hard and fast rules, there are a few guidelines that will help you determine the right size for your dining room chandelier.

Determining the right chandelier size for a room can be a bit tricky. If you get one that's too small it will get lost; if you get one that's too big it can completely overwhelm the space. Here are a few tips that will help you get the right size chandelier for your room.

Determining a Chandelier Size

Before following the guidelines below remember that the style and visual weight of the chandelier will also affect the size you should get.

A visually heavy light fixture can be a little bit smaller while a visually light fixture can be a little wider.

A simple way to determine a chandelier size is to add the dimensions of the room together in feet and then convert the answer to inches. The answer in inches should equal the diameter of the fixture.
So if your room measures 10' x 14' the diameter of the fixture should be about 24". Here are a few more quick guidelines to help:
  • If the room is smaller than 10' x 10' the fixture should be 17" to 20" wide.
  • If the room is around 12' x 12' the fixture should be 22" to 27" wide.
  • If the room is around 14' x 14' the fixture should be 24" to 32" wide.

 *** Remember that if you're buying a dining room chandelier to hang above a table you'll also have to take the size of the table into account.

One suggestion is that the diameter of the dining room chandelier should be about one half to two thirds the width of the table it will be hanging over.
