Chandeliers can add style and a decorative focal point to almost any room in your home. While chandeliers have traditionally hung in the dining room or foyer, the trend is to use them in other rooms such as the bedroom, living room, bathrooms and even hallways. In picking a chandelier, you'll need to determine whether you need general or task lighting as well as what size your fixture will need to be.
If you need a fixture that provides task lighting for activities such as doing homework, preparing meals or family recreation, a chandelier with the bulbs and shades pointing downward, or a downlight fixture, would be a good choice. If you need a chandelier that provides general lighting appropriate for dining and entertaining, a chandelier with the shades and bulbs pointing upwards (e.g. candelabra or uplight fixtures) would be ideal.
When it comes to sizing your chandelier, there are several factors that you'll need to consider such as location, room size and ceiling height. For a dining room, you'll typically want the diameter of your chandelier to be about 6" narrower than the size of your table on both sides. You'll also want to consider hanging height. In a dining room with an 8' ceiling, the bottom of the fixture should be hung about 30" to 32" above the table top. For higher ceilings, you can add 3" for every foot of addition ceiling height.
While there is not a hard and fast rule for determining the correct fixture size for your foyer, living room, bedroom or powder room, the overall room size is a primary consideration. One rule of thumb is to measure diagonally across the room, convert this measurement from feet to inches, and the resulting number represents the approximate diameter size for your fixture. Another guideline is to measure the length and width of the room, add those figures together, convert from feet to inches and the resulting number equals the approximate diameter size for your chandelier.
If you are installing your chandelier in a room with a high ceiling, it will be important to consider the height of your chandelier as well as the diameter. For example, you will need a much taller chandelier for a two-story foyer than you would need for a 9' living room.
You'll want to hang your chandelier about 84" above the floor to ensure clearance for doors and taller people walking under it. However, if your foyer or living room has a large second story window where it can be viewed from outdoors, you'll want to hang your chandelier so that it's in the center of the window.
Transitional style softens traditional design themes while maintaining their warmth and timeless appeal. With a focus on the simplicity and sophistication of the design, ornamentation and decoration is kept to a minimum to highlight the use of classic lines and curves. Transitional aesthetics use classic traditional features, but forego the ornamentation found in that classic styling.
