Dining Room Chandelier - Tips How to Hang

You want to make sure that the space from the top of your table to the bottom of the chandelier is around 30" if you have an 8' ceiling. For every foot higher your ceiling is, add 3" to the gap between your chandelier and table.

There are a few differences between up light and down light, but maybe not in the way you would expect it. Whether you have an up light or a down light chandelier, you will still get the same amount of light from the fixture. It really depends on what effect you want to have it make on the room.

Up light gives a room a more dramatic look and adds height to the feel of the room.

Down light gives the room a more intimate, cozy feel.

Vanity Lights

Before you purchase new vanity lights, here are some things to keep in mind.

First, you want to check and see if your electrical box is centered over your vanity. If it is, you've got a wider selection of vanity lights to choose from. If your vanity light is not centered over your sink/mirror, then you most likely want to pick out a light that has a large back plate. This allows you to slide the fixture over the electrical area to center it with the vanity.

Next, you want to know if you want your lights to point up or down. The majority of bathroom lights can be hung either way. Pointing the lights up in your bathroom will give you more of an ambiance feel and gives a more dramatic effect to the area, whereas pointing the lights down is more task oriented for doing make up or any other tasks you see yourself doing in front of the mirror.

Finally, you want to make sure your vanity light fits your style! Make the light unique and yours. Give it some personality that goes along with your bathroom.
