Things to Consider before Buying a French Country Chandelier

Before buying a chandelier from any store, there are several things you should consider as follows:

1. Examine the Required Light Output

First of all, do some examinations about the light output. If you want to place the chandelier in your kitchen, then examine the kitchen’s light output.

A chandelier is an ambient light source, which means it dispels light from an indirect light source. Ambient lighting will fill a room with light, but it needs to be paired with other light sources to give optimal room lighting.

2. The Highs and Lows of the Chandelier

In order to determine the height, then you need to pay attention that the bottom of the unit should be at least 7 feet above the floor or higher.

If you place the chandelier above dining room table, then the bottom of it should be no lower than 30 to 36 inches above the tabletop in order to allow your guests to see each other clearly.

3. Provide Room for the Chandelier

The size really matters if you want to install a chandelier in your kitchen. For example, If your kitchen’s size is 10×16 feet, then it would look nice with a 26 inches chandelier.

In order to get an accurate estimate, measure the room diagonally. Whatever the result in feet, use the number in inches for the chandelier’s width.
