Tuesday Tips

Coastal chic diing room with a gorgeous chandelierThe dining room chandelier is a design conundrum that has been around for as long as we can remember. There are many aspects that go into making this design choice. The official standing, and what you’ll most likely read in the textbooks, is to hang the chandelier 30-34 inches above the dining room table if you have an 8 foot ceiling. If you have a higher ceiling you add 3 inches for every foot above 8 feet. For example, if you have 10 foot ceiling you would hang the chandelier 36-50 inches above the table. That’s just the start.

On top of the hanging height, you need to take into consideration the width. The general rule is to make sure your chandelier is 12 inches narrower than the with of your table. So purchase a wide table because we don’t want anyone hitting their heads on it now, do we? That’s not too bad, but wait! It’s then suggested that the chandelier be 48 inches from each wall in the dining room and should be centered on the table. We can manage that right? Right!

Now that we have the technically side down, it’s time to actually pick your chandelier which means more choices and options as well as design aspects to factor in. Starting to see where this is going? Exactly, no thanks! Sometimes you have to toss the rules out the window and go for it. A chandelier doesn’t need to be that complicated. Find what you like, make sure it fits in the room (literally and aesthetically) and then eye it. Size it up with your eyes and pick the height that you like the most as well as looks right to you. This is your space, you don’t need other people telling you how to design it.
