How to find the perfect room Chandelier Size

Determining the right chandelier (jhumar) size can be a difficult task. If it is too small, it can lose its beauty or if it is too long, it can completely overwhelm your space. But don’t worry we have come up with some simple tricks to identify the right size of chandelier for your space.

How to find the perfect Chandelier Size

Step 1. Calculation for lenght / width or Diameter

The best way to find out a Jhumar size is to add the length and width of the room together in feet and then convert your results to inches. The results in inches should be equal to the diameter of your chandelier.

For example, if your room length and width are 10′ x 14′ then the diameter of the jhumar should be about 24” (10+14).

Here are a few more quick guidelines that can help you better:

  • If your room is smaller or equal to the area of 10′ x 10′ then the Jhumar size should be between 17″ to 20″ round rectangular or square by shape.
  • If the room size is somehow equivalent to the area of 12′ x 12′ then the jhumar size should be between 22″ to 27″ round rectangular or square by shape.
  • If the room size is somehow equivalent to the area of 14′ x 14′ then the jhumar size should be between 24″ to 32″ round rectangular or square by shape.

However, if you already have a table or desk below the jhumar space, then it is more important to size your jhumar according to the table than that of the room. A good thumb rule is to make sure your chandelier size should be one-half to three-quarters the width of your table.

Step 2. The calculation for Hight of the chandelier (Jhumar)

Hight is a very important part of size, Too long or short decorative light can make your chandelier looks ugly, Decorative light is the jewelry of your home decoration it should be perfect in height.

If you’re planning to hang a jhumar in the middle of your room then first you should know your ceiling Hight from your floor.

Always choose a jhumar that will hang not lower than 7 feet 6 inches from the floor. Ideally, if your ceiling height can allow you, then your chandelier Hight should allow 8 feet from the floor to the lowest part of the chandelier.

For example, if the height of your ceiling is 10 feet, then you can hang a Jhumar of height from 10 inches to 30 inches.

If the ceiling height is 12 feet, then you can choose a chandelier whose height ranges from 12 inches to 36”.

The best way to calculate the height of the Jhumar is to convert the height of your ceiling in feet to inches. Then the height of the Jhumar should range between 1x to 3x of that inch’s dimensions.

Let’s understand this method with a simple example, if your ceiling height is 10 feet from the floor of your room then the height of the chandelier should be between 1x (i.e., 1×10= 10inches) to 3x (i.e., 3×10= 30inches).
