Available in varying sizes, chandeliers can be the focal points of a number of rooms, including bedrooms, dens, great rooms, kitchens, and even bathrooms.
If you are hanging a chandelier in the dining room, the table serves as your measuring guide. Take half the width, and you may exceed this by six inches to purchase the appropriate fixture diameter. The fixture should be hung 32–36 inches above the table's surface.
If you are hanging a chandelier in a bedroom, the fixture is hung from the middle of the ceiling and is usually positioned over part or the majority of the bed. The style of chandelier changes with the décor of a room. For instance, a crystal chandelier can be a beautiful focal point and add elegance to any bathroom, whereas a brass chandelier may serve well for an office or study, and an iron chandelier may make a grand statement in a family or great room.
