How do you measure a foyer chandelier?
Besides, what size should a foyer light be?
The rule of thumb for designers is that the hanging lighting fixture should have 2 to 3 inches of height for each foot of ceiling height. For example, a 10-foot high foyer ceiling calls for a chandelier that is 20 to 30 inches in height.
In this manner, how high should a chandelier hang in a 2 story foyer?
To determine the diameter of a light fixture that's best for your space:
- Measure the length and width of the room in feet. Example: 10 feet by 12 feet.
- Add the two lengths together.
- Swap that value in feet for inches (so 20 feet becomes 20 inches)
- This is the ideal diameter for a light fixture in this room.
