What Size Wood Chandelier Do I Need?
When looking for wood chandelier lighting there are several things to consider, first of all is the chandelier going to be the main source of light in the room or will there be another source of light? Then you need to determine how many watts or lumens you will need from the fixture. For help with this visit our Colonial Lighting Page.
Once you have determined the approximate amount of watts necessary you can find the amount of watts each chandelier is rated for in the item description. Is the fixture designed for 25 watt, 40 watt or 60 watt bulbs? Next multiply this wattage by the number of sockets on your chandelier, now you have the maximum wattage for the chandelier.
Just because a wood chandelier meets the minimum wattage requirement for your room doesn’t mean it will look right in your setting. You also need to consider the size of the chandelier in comparison to the room size. Wooden chandeliers that are too big in proportion to the room will be overwhelming, while to small will look lost or out of place.
In most homes the following primitive chandeliers rule of thumb applies:
· For rooms 10’ x 10’ and smaller use a 17”-20” diameter chandelier.
· For rooms 12’ x 12’ use a 20”–27” diameter chandelier.
· For rooms 14’ x 14’ use a 24”-36” diameter chandelier.
