Ceiling Light Tips 

 

Ceiling Fixture Tips - Over a kitchen island

OVER A KITCHEN ISLAND

 

We recommend installing ceiling fixtures 30"-36" from the surface of your kitchen island. When installing multiple fixtures, the widest part of the fixtures should be spaced a minimum of 30" apart for optimal airflow, light spread, and visibility.

Ceiling Fixture Tips - Linear fixtures over a surface

LINEAR FIXTURES OVER A SURFACE

 

The key to sizing an elongated light fixture is proportion. We recommend selecting a light measuring no more than 2/3 the length of the table or island. Consider hanging a pair of linear fixtures to light extra long surfaces.

Ceiling Fixture Tips - Over a dining table

OVER A DINING TABLE

 

We recommend leaving approximately 30"- 36" between the bottom of your fixture and the surface of your dining table. The width of your fixture should be at least 6" narrower than the width of your table.

Ceiling Fixture Tips - Over a round dining table

OVER A ROUND DINING TABLE

 

We recommend leaving approximately 30"- 36" between the bottom of your fixture and the surface of your table. Choose a fixture with a width measuring between 1/2 and 3/4 the diameter of around table.

Ceiling Fixture Tips - In an entry or hallway

IN AN ENTRY OR HALLWAY

 

Light fixtures should comfortably clear the thresholds of any adjacent doors and the heads of all family members! Leave a minimum of 7' from the floor to the bottom of the fixture, and 4' from the widest part of the fixture to any surrounding wall.

Ceiling Fixture Tips - Great rooms / ceilings 10' or taller

GREAT ROOMS / CEILINGS 10FT OR TALLER

 

Consider two-tiered chandeliers for ceilings 10 feet or taller. Please note the "overall height" measurement in each fixture's specifications.
