How to choose the right chandelier for the room's size

The chandelier is one of the key elements of the decor. Properly selected lighting device emphasizes the style of the interior and is able to qualitatively change the perception of the room by a person. Not only the chandelier, but also the lighting itself affects the emotional state, allows you to emphasize certain details of the room.

MAIN PARAMETERS WHEN CHOOSE A CHANDELIER

There are several indicators that you must first of all keep in mind when buying a chandelier. We are talking about its size, type, color, style of performance. 

THE SIZE

When choosing a chandelier, you should take into account the dimensions of the room where it will be placed. The lamp should not be too large so as not to create a feeling of congestion in the interior. At the same time, the chandelier should not look too small - disproportionate to the scale of the room.

Parameters taken into account include the height, diameter, and the number of horns or shoulders of the lighting fixture. To choose a chandelier according to the size of the room, it is recommended to adhere to the following formula: width + room length × 10. The result of the calculations is the diameter of the chandelier (in centimeters). For example, the width of the room is 5, and the length is 7 m. The required diameter of the chandelier will be 120 cm (5 + 7 × 10 = 120). 120 cm= 47.2 inches.

THE FORM

When choosing a chandelier, you need to consider its shape. This parameter is influenced by the characteristics of the room. For example, for a room with a high ceiling, it is advisable to choose a pendant type chandelier, as it will visually fill the space and give the room a cozy feel.

But for rooms with low ceilings, pendant lights are not suitable: it is better to buy a flat ceiling model. For long and narrow rooms, elongated lighting fixtures are suitable: firstly, they visually repeat the shape of the room, and secondly, they allow you to organize more efficient lighting.
