Great designers, therefore, tend to make their decisions on fixtures that may appear slightly larger than might be appropriate. It’s generally always best to make the mistake on a fixture being too big than too small. Because let’s face it the crystal chandelier is kind of an apple in the eye for your home you should know that if you are planning to own one.

To make sure your chandelier is the right size for the room in which it will hang, consider the following questions. How high is your ceiling? Taller ceilings demand larger fixtures.  What is the size and shape of your table or island? The chandelier should complement, not overpower, anything you plan to suspend it over.  How big is the room you are trying to illuminate? Again, be sure the chandelier is not too big or too small for the room.  What is the form and design of the chandelier? Light, airy fixtures tend to look larger. There are a lot to worry about and a lot to keep in mind when considering crystal chandelier so at least, be ready and well informed. Well to give you all some pointers about how to determine the proper size chandelier for the foyer add the dimensions together, here is some example if your foyer is 12’ by 16’, add the 12 plus 16 to get 28.  The proper size chandelier would then be 28” diameter.

Remember number is still important because it determines the measurements and all.  This works for any room.  Make sure the bottom of the fixture does not hang more than 7’ from the floor.  If windows are present, center the fixture in the window so it can be seen from outside, next up to determine the proper size chandelier for a dining table, choose a chandelier choose one with a diameter 12″ less than width of table.  This assumes the table is sized appropriate for room.   It should be hung with the bottom of the fixture 30” above the tabletop for an 8’ ceiling.  Go up 3” for each additional foot of ceiling.  For ceilings nine feet or higher, consider a two-tier style chandelier to fill the space from the fixture’s top to the ceiling.

Keep in mind that the measurements of the spot where you will place your crystal chandeliers play a big part on your overall home décor. It is vital to have everything measured in numbers, not to mention the sizes of the important parts of the décor.
