How to choose and position dining room chandeliers
Before you attempt to buy dining room chandeliers, take measurements
from your dining table and see to it that you size your lighting
fixture appropriately. Dining room chandeliers should never be larger
then your table; its' diameter should be equal to one half the width
of your table.
A handy rule of thumb is that your dining room chandeliers should
be 12 inches narrower than the table and at least 48 inches of space
from each of the room walls or edges.
Position your dining room chandeliers 32 to 34 inches from the
top of the table. This is high enough to be out of the way and low
enough to complement your table setting. Also, be sure to position
your fixture in the center of the table and room proportions.
As far as installing your dining room chandeliers, you will probably
want to hire an electrician, especially if your light fixture weighs
more than 50 pounds. A fixture over 50 pounds will need to be mounted
more securely to your home's structure. (This is a criterion of
the National Electrical Code).
