How High Should My Chandelier Hang?

hookThere are a lot of opinions about what height your chandelier should hang. Your chandelier is the focal point of your dining room. It should not be too high. If you often move the table and you are afraid people will hit their heads on the chandelier, don’t permanently raise the height of your chandelier. Simply pick up an inexpensive S-Hook or Chain Quick Link at Lowes or Home Depot. When you need it raised, just loop up the chain.

“Hang at the right height. The bottom of a chandelier should hit about 30″ (36″ at most) above the tabletop. That brings the light close enough for tasks, clears the view for conversation and avoids unflattering shadows.”

Harco Loor Jewel Oval Chandelier
This beautiful eclectic crystal chandelier is available in a variety of sizes. It can be hand twisted to fit your home.

“When I hang a chandelier above a table, I like to have about 66 inches from the floor to the underside of the light fixture. That’s enough room to put a flower arrangement or a centerpiece on the table and sit and talk, but low enough that you still have light hitting the table, giving a glow.”
HGTV Design Star judge Vern Yip, HGTV Magazine

Fine Art Lamps 233540 Pendant from the Black & White Story Collection

This 32″ wide Oriental Pendant from Fine Art Lamp’s Black & White Story Collection is available in black or white satin lacquer finish surrounding a textured white linen shade.

“30-36” Good height for a pendant light above a kitchen island. Offers bright enough task lighting without head/lamp collisions.
“66” Ideal height to hang a chandelier. Measure from the bottom of the fixture to the floor. This leaves enough room for a centerpiece and doesn’t block you line of sight across the table, but still gives you enough light for eating.”

Mix a Chinese Chippendale look in with a comfortable historic home. Thomas Chippendale’s design book, The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director included Chinese as one of his four main styles. Chinese Chippendale is characterized by latticework and lacquer.

Oriental works well with rich bold colors. Incorporate traditional Chinese red and black. Or use a more muted minimalist approach. Pale, neutral, natural colors create a beautiful back drop.
