Choosing a Chandelier – How to Pick the Correct Size

There was a time when chandeliers were either carefully centered over the formal dining room table or reserved for the entry foyer of a grand mansion. Today, chandeliers are found in a wide variety of new locations in modern homes.

From master bathrooms to bedrooms, chandeliers are providing a luxury touch throughout the home. The effect of a chandelier in décor depends entirely on choosing not only the correct style, but the proper size as well.

Chosen well, a chandelier can add a sophistication and elegance to any space. Once you’ve decided on the style of chandelier, it’s time to choose the correct size. The most important element is the size of the room.

Small room – 10’ by 10’: choose a chandelier 17” to 20” in diameter

Medium room – 12’ by 12’: choose a chandelier 26” or 27” in diameter

Larger room – 14’ by 14’ or more: choose a larger chandelier of 24” to 36” or even a bit bigger if the space permits.

Chandeliers come in many styles and sizes. Finding one which suits your taste is easier than ever. By choosing the right size, you ensure that you achieve your desired effect.

When you're preparing your home for market, it makes sense to assess what improvements can be made so that you're not leaving money on the table at closing that you could have gained back by increasing the value of your property.

But what are those improvements? By the time you sell, the window of opportunity to make strategic improvements is small, and you may be limited by market conditions and time constraints.
