Needless to say the importance of lighting, the changes in light and shadow directly affect the quality of a photo, a performance, or a movie. Your restaurant is no exception. Lights are a must-have for a good dining table and good appetite. Hurry up and give up ceiling lamps. Dining tables and low pendant lights are better partners.
How to choose the right chandelier size
1. Taking the dining table as a reference, the diameter of the chandeliers is preferably half of the width of the dining table.
For example: It is known that the table of Tom’s house is 1.2m wide. How big is the chandelier?
Reference answer: It is most suitable to match a chandelier with a diameter between 56cm and 61cm.
2. Taking the room as a reference, the total (unit: meter) obtained by adding the length and width of the room is the size of the chandelier (unit: cm). (Yes, it °Øs more difficult to understand. Don°Øt worry, I will give you an example to understand)
For example: Tom’s restaurant is 3.6m long and 3m wide. What size of chandelier to choose?
Reference answer: Because 3.6 + 3 = 6.6 (m), it is most suitable to choose a chandelier of about 66cm. (Don’t ask me why, this is sorcery)
How to set the height of the chandelier?
Height is a big issue! If the chandelier is too high, it is like a ceiling lamp. If it is too low, the light is concentrated on the table, the room is dark, and it is easy to pinch your head. Everything has its best scale, let’s take a look at the best scale of a chandelier.
Taking the tabletop as a reference, the chandelier is most suitable from the tabletop 76cm-91cm! So you have to choose the table first, and then decide the position and height of the chandeliers.
However, there is also a fetish called a liftable chandelier, which can be as high as you want, but the style will be limited.
Note: Related dimensions refer to the book “Design Guidelines” written by American designer Elaine Griffin. This book is highly recommended and really great!

The overall color is white and it is decorated with blue chandeliers. The green chandelier is very Vintage. The clear and bright space can be matched with the black chandelier. The minimalist thin-lined chair and the line of the chandelier echo.
Maybe you don’t like the correct answer, don’t want to follow the standard, and want to change according to your specific needs, then you can look at the picture below. The slightly lower light is more concentrated and the surrounding environment is darker and more ambiguous. The slightly higher light is more diffuse and the overall restaurant is brighter.
Slightly lower than the standard size, the light will be more focused on the table, and the dimming of the light will be more ambiguous.
The long chandelier is amazing and beautiful, especially suitable for dining table and work table. There are several possibilities for visual inspection of the lampshade:
