How to Find the Right Size Chandelier for Your Room
Adding a chandelier to a room in your home or business can add style and elegance. When selecting a fixture, one big question you will likely have is how big of a chandelier to get for a particular space.
While the style and overall appearance of a chandelier can impact how big of a lighting fixture to purchase, some general rules to follow for selecting the right size are to add the dimensions of the room together in feet, then convert the measurement to inches. This total should equal the diameter of the chandelier you select.
- The fixture should be 17” to 20” wide if the room is smaller than 10’ x 10’
- The chandelier can be 22” to 27” wide if the room measures around 12’ by 12’
- The fixture should be 24” to 32” wide if the room is 14’ x 14’
