But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (3436 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear. Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting.
