When placed properly, it adds an ambiance to the room that just can’t be achieved with a fixture that is flush to the ceiling. We deal with this often, and through our experiences we can provide you with some guidelines to follow when picking out and hanging a fixture over your dining table.
Typically, the diameter of your light fixture should be about 12 inches less than the width of your table.
If you have an open concept dining/living area, go sit in the living room and look towards the dining table and light fixture. When in doubt, give us a call and we will be happy to come to your home and guide you through the process.
