A Little Graphic Help

Sizing chandeliers for large dining rooms is a bit trickier than most rooms.  Too large of a chandelier will have you looking like a hotel ballroom and too small of a chandelier will get lost.  Can the chandelier be wider than the table?

In answer to the latter question, yes it can.  If you can hang the chandelier high enough, it is okay for it to be wider than the table as long as you like the way it looks. We recommend 3′ or so off the table in such a situation.

Below are some simple illustrations for larger dining rooms.
