Nowadays you can place a fixture just about anywhere that an existing, or potential, junction box can go. However, there are standards you should adhere to when hanging lighting fixtures in certain rooms like dining rooms. Keep the advice we provide here in mind when installing a new fixture over your dining table.
The Key - Know Your Measurements
You will also need to reference the proposed fixture’s dimensions via the fixture’s Spec Sheet. Spec Sheets are available through our retailers’ websites. You can also look for your light fixture or find dimensions and spec sheets here at GoldenLightingOutlet.com.
Our Scale images are also helpful. With each of our products, we offer Scale Reference Images. As shown below, these images can help you get a better sense of how a fixture will fit in your space.
How To Hang Lighting Fixtures Above Dining Rooms and Tables
- Pendants and chandeliers should stay 30” above the table or surface
- Use a fixture that is 12” narrower than the width of the table
