Be prepared. Measure ahead.


How far from dining room tables should chandeliers hang? What’s the standard height for kitchen countertops? You’ll have to measure, so that your selections work for your family’s needs and are in proportion to everything else in the room.

Chandeliers – The Spruce says to add the dimensions of the room in feet and then convert the answer to inches. A room that measures 10' x 14' can handle a chandelier 24" in diameter. suggests hanging a chandelier approximately 30 to 34 inches over the dining room table with an eight-foot ceiling height. If your ceiling is taller, add three inches for each foot of ceiling.

Shower heads – advises that shower heads should be approximately 80 inches above the floor. Extend or shorten the neck for taller or shorter users.

Kitchen countertops - says that the accepted standard is about 36 inches from the cabinet top to the floor for consumers of average height (5’3” to 5’8”). Taller families should raise workspaces to about 42 inches. recommends countertops between 28 to 34 inches for those with disabilities.

Take time to measure for more pleasing results in your decorating and remodeling. Your family and friends will thank you.
