When choosing a suitable size chandelier it is important to consider your ceiling heights. In walkway areas your ceiling heights may restrict the size and style of chandelier you can select, however there is far less consideration for ceiling heights when the selected chandelier is being installed over dining tables, coffee tables, kitchen island benches & over beds.When installing a chandelier in a lower height ceiling & you plan to walk directly under it, it may be more suited to select a flush mounted style
WIDTHS / DIAMETERS
CONVERSIONS FOR WIDTH FORMULA
1 inch = 2.54cm - 1 Foot = 30.38cm - 1 Meter = 3.28 Feet - 1 Meter = 39.37in
A good guide to determine a chandeliers minimum width/diameter is to add the dimensions of the room together in feet and then convert the answer into inches. The answer in inches will equal the minimum width/diameter of the chandelier. So if your room measures 10' foot x 14' foot, the diameter of the should be no less than 24 inches.
Note: The above formula offers a good guide to ensure you do not select a chandelier that is obviously too small for your room, however it's also important to remember chandeliers were created as statement pieces and if you are wanting to create a more substantial statement (like many designers do) you can within reason select a chandelier that is greater in diameter than the above guide. Many of our installed gallery photo's go beyond the generic size guide to create such statements.
INSTALLING IN A WALKWAY
When installing a chandelier or pendant in a area that you are plan to walk directly under, it is recommended to have a clearance height from the ground to the very bottom crystal on the chandelier between 200cm - 210cm.
Example: If you have a ceiling height of 2.7m it is recommended to select a chandelier that has a maximum height /drop from the ceiling of between 60cm - 70cm (inclusive of the minimum suspension for non direct/flush mount chandeliers)
INSTALLING OVER A TABLE, ISLAND BENCH OR BED
If you are installing your chandelier or pendant over a kitchen island, dining table, coffee table or over a bed you can select a longer chandelier to create more impact. The below formula is recommended and provides both a balanced look and the practicality of the ability to see clearly across the table when seated.
Measure the distance from the top of the Table/Bench/Bed to the ceiling, then divide that by 2 = The desired height for the bottom of the chandelier to finish.
Example: If you have a table height of 80cm and you measure from the table top to the ceiling of 1.9m it would mean you can select a chandelier that has a maximum height of 95cm (inclusive of the minimum suspension for non flush mount chandeliers)
