How to calculate lighting fixture size above table

To calculate the size chandelier above your dining table or kitchen table: Measure the width of your table. Multiple by 75%. The fixture should be 3/4 width of the table

Hanging the fixture: Measure ceiling height, the light should be hung 30″ above the table top.

Fixture Width Example Calculation: If your table is 44″ wide x 31″ high: 44″ x 75% is 33″ recommended width of fixture.

Fixture Height Calculation Example:  Measure table and ceiling height.  If ceiling height is 96″ : subtract 30″ hanging distance above table – 31″ table height = maximum height of total fixture or 35″ including chain.
