- When deciding on the size of a chandelier, consider the size of the table. The chandelier should be about one-third of the table’s width. Additionally, it should hang about 30 inches from the table so don’t get one that’s too big if you have low ceilings.
- Besides just looking good, you chandelier is foremost a source of light for the room. Make sure that it provides enough light to illuminate the given space.
- Finally, when choosing a crystal chandelier for your dining room, choose a style that compliments your interior design. That does not mean that the styles have to match. For example, an elaborate crystal chandelier can look great in a more simple or rustic setting.
