A mini-guide on how to choose perfect chandeliers for your dining room
Dining room is somehow multi-function since it can be used for entertainment, eating with family members or friends, getting work done and more. A stylish chandelier can not only illuminate the dining room but serve as a perfect centerpiece to highlight the table as well. To determine the size of your dining room chandelier, first, measure the length of and the width of your dining room. Then add two numbers together you get the most appropriate chandelier width in inches. A chandelier above the dining table should be 12 inches narrower than a table, 30 to 36 inches above the tabletop and at least 48 inches away from each of the room walls or edges. Choose a larger chandelier if you have vaulted ceilings, and a smaller piece if you have lower ceilings.
When it comes to selecting a chandelier for your dining room, take into account designs and materials of the rest of the room’s decor and also your lighting needs. If your dining room is finely decorated, opt for chandeliers with eye-catching embellishments such as dazzling clear crystal garland strands. A chandelier that goes well with the overall design aesthetics of your home decor in style showcases your refined taste. A single-bulb chandelier may be all you need to brighten up a cozy nook in the dining room. If you’re attempting to light a larger area, look for a chandelier that features multiple bulbs or reflects light in many different directions. Go with the chandeliers that come with a dimmer to have full control over the amount of light they give off and set the mood for the ambiance.
