An overall lighting package for your home will typically cost 1-2% of your home’s overall value. It’s not uncommon to even go over this amount. Chandeliers are often seen as the focal point of a lighting project and tend to cost more than other lighting related fixtures. There is no specific number determining what the right number is as that will depend on the client. Here are some large chandeliers under $500,link
The best way to find out how big a chandelier should be in your dining room is to use the following formula. Add the length and width of the room and the sum will equal the approximate diameter of the light fixture you should get. You also want to be mindful of the ceiling height and table size as you do not want to exceed the width of the table. You should also bear in mind the shape of your table. For example, you don’t want to have a linear fixture over a circular table. This would make your dining room look silly. Always try to find a style that goes with the room. This will yield the best result.
This will all depend on the chandelier and where it is being hung. A typical chandelier is hung between 30-36 inches off the top of your table. Foyers can vary depending on what’s in the room like windows, or if the room has tight spaces. Try to keep your fixtures 7 feet off the ground. If it’s not being hung over something like a table, then bear in mind that you’ll need space to walk under it.
There are many combinations that can work when it comes to tables and chandeliers. Putting a round chandelier over a rectangular table can work. You should always ask your lighting specialist if your desired setup is both functional and proportional.
What’s considered a good chandelier will vary depending on who’s buying it. You always want to find a chandelier that will fit your budget that also doesn’t sacrifice quality, aesthetics, or functionality to do so. If you’re looking for chandeliers on the expensive side, then things like crustal grade, size, material, where they’re made and how they were crafted become important. Just look for something that works for you, and it will likely be a good chandelier.
