Proper Height To Hang A Chandelier Over Dining Room Table
It doesnt matter the size of your table - you need to be concerned about the height of the fixture from the floor.
Proper Height To Hang A Chandelier Over Dining Room Table. The calculation for the chandelier height above a dining table is quite simple. Chandeliers over dining tables or kitchen islands should hang anywhere from 30 to 36 inches above the table. In general your chandelier should hang no lower than 30 inches to 36 inches above your table.
The fixture in my home for example is 36 inches above the tabletop. Lets take a look. The chandelier should hang over the center of the table.
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. Your light fixture should hang 30 36 inches from the top of your table if you have an 8-foot ceiling. It depends on the size of the table the diameter and height of the fixture and the height of the ceiling.
Make sure your chain measurement includes the 4 inches of the chandeliers hanging. Above dining tables the chandelier should hang 30-34 above the table in an 8 room. Any less space than that and the light may be.
Using an average 8-foot ceiling as a guide the general rule is that the bottom of the light fixture should land between 30 and 34 inches above the top of the dining table. However all rules are made to be broken and some people consider this too low for casual entertaining. When hanging the chandelier make sure to hang it at the proper height.
