Chandeliers create a visual impact and have a great influence in the overall finish design of a room by the attention they attract. We suggest some rules to fallow when selecting your chandelier:
Remember that scale is very important. A chandelier should compliment not overpower.
The bottom of your design should not be lower than 90” from the floor.
When hanging a chandelier over your Dining Room table, the width of your design should be 12” narrower than the table and 30” from the bottom of your chandelier to the top of your table. If you have a table that is very long you can choose to have two smaller chandeliers instead of a large one.
As a general rule to creating an inviting atmosphere, it is better to use multiple light sources in each room. Consider using a combination of a chandelier or pendant (s) and wall sconces from our catalog to achieve an overall harmonious combination of finishes and designs that compliment one another and create a unique and timeless room.
When selecting light bulbs for chandeliers that have 4-8 lights, we recommend using 25w-40w light bulbs. If your design has more than 8 lights, 25w light bulbs should be used. If installing LED light bulbs higher wattage can be used. All chandelier designs use candelabra base light bulbs. Light bulbs are not included.
