Have you been thinking about changing that drab and totally outdated chandelier in your home? Here’s a tip that will help your selection process when you are ready to get out of the dark ages. (No pun intended)

Choosing the proper size chandelier for the space is important for both balance and function. Start by adding the room’s length and width in feet, then use the sum (converted to inches) as a guide for the best diameter for the new chandelier.


11’+13’=26′ (sum of room’s length and width)

26′–>26″ (converted to inches)

26″ is the desired chandelier diameter for the example space.

For a more grand look, you can always select a larger diameter chandelier! (Sometimes less isn’t more!)

As a general rule, chandelier length should be 2-3″ per foot of wall height.
