Correct Height For Chandelier Over Dining Table
Use our calculator below to determine an ideal chandelier size based on your table dimensions and ceiling height.
Correct Height For Chandelier Over Dining Table. The standard height for hanging a chandelier or pendant lamp over the dining table is 30 inches from the tabletop. A general rule of thumb is to hang the fixture 3 feet 36 inches above your table or 6 feet 72 inches off the floor. Allow 33-34 of space between the table surface and light fixture with a ceiling less than 8.
But then again rules are made to be broken. Ceilings higher than thatwell you do the math. Your light fixture should hang 30 36 inches from the top of your table if you have an 8-foot ceiling.
For every foot of ceiling height beyond 8 feet add 3-6 inches to the length of your chainwire. You can spice up the look by staggering your pendants or have a clean look with even lengths. With a longer rectangular dining room table consider our wood chandeliers or wrap chandeliers.
The number of bulbs may also impact size. In general your chandelier should hang no lower than 30 inches to 36 inches above your table. Your chandelier height should be close enough to the table that it will light up the table more than a ceiling light would.
A chandelier hung over a table should be 30 to 34 inches above the bottom of the table. The fixture in my home for example is 36 inches above the tabletop. Todays average dining room chandelier is a four to six light 26-30 diameter fixture.
For example if the dining room table was 48 wide x 60 long the chandelier that is 24 to 36 in diameter would be an appropriate size to compliment the table. Add 1 inch to the height of the chandelier for each foot the ceiling stands over 8 feet. Take ceiling height and chandelier height into consideration before buying too.
