How To Determine Appropriate Chandelier Size

Clients often ask what size chandelier is best for a room.  And since that light fixture is ceiling jewelry, it’s important to try to get the size right!  Below is a guideline as to how to determine optimum size.  Remember though--this is a guide.  If ceilings are really tall (or really low) or if hanging over a table, adjustments may be needed.

For diameter:

Measure length and width of room (in feet)

Example: 10 ft x 12 ft

Add those 2 numbers

Example: 10 + 12 = 22

That is the recommended diameter (in inches) of chandelier

Example: 22 inches in diameter

 

For height:

Measure height of ceiling (in feet)

Example: 18 ft ceiling

Multiply by 2.5 or 3

Example: 18 x 2.5 = 45 or 18 x 3 = 54

That is the recommended height (in inches) of the fixture

Example: 45-54 inches
