Round Wood Chandelier For Dining Room
Round wood chandelier in the dining room must both light the table correctly and throw enough light to illuminate the rest of the room. The size and style of the lamp can also set the stage for your dining room, giving a sense of your decor style and personality. A few simple measurements are all you need to choose the right size round wood chandelier based on the dimensions of your dining room and its table.
Measure the diameter or width of the dining table top. Your round wood chandelier should be half of this measurement. For example, if your table is a 60-inch round, your round wood chandelier should have a diameter of 30 inches. If the table is a rectangle of width 36 inches, choose a chandelier that is 18 inches in diameter.
Set the height of the dining room ceiling. Designers recommend 2 1/2 to 3 inches of round wood chandelier height to each foot of the room height. If your ceilings are 10 feet tall, your chandelier should be between 25 and 30 inches high. The bottom of the chandelier should fall about 30 inches above the top of the table proper light in the room and the table. Select a round wood chandelier that matches the style in the table. A heavy table requires a fat chandelier while a glass-topped table needs a more airy light fixture.
