When choosing a chandelier for a particular room you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But if you have really high ceilings then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier the smaller it is going to appear.

If you don`t feel comfortable doing it it`s an easy and quick job for an electrician. Take a look at what`s out there there`s sure to be something that suits your style.
Victorian Chandeliers - You do not have to live in a Victorian mansion to add crystal or glass-drop chandeliers. In fact if you have a formal dining area or baby grand piano you can use a crystal chandelier for that area. If you have gracefully legged chairs and tables in your living area crystal chandeliers can also fit. If you decorate in chintz and floral patterns glass-drop chandeliers can offer the same feel as crystal without being quite as formal.
Type of lighting required: The kind of lighting that you need is also an important criterion to consider.
