Size of the chandelier: The most important element to consider is the size. If not sized correctly a chandelier will not be able to provide lighting as desired and may well not fit into its designated spot. So here`s what you need to know about sizing a chandelier.
Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling and 3-4 inches for the chandelier hook the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
