Where and how high? Sounds like a challenge that my husband would make to me during one of our workouts…but not to fret. This is just one of those questions that we are asking ourselves in regards to lighting.
I asked our resident interior decorator, and this is what she suggested…
Above a dining room table, 18 to 32 inches from the bottom of the fixture to the top of the table.
In a foyer, we recommend 18 to 24 inches from the bottom of the fixture to the height of a taller person.
Over an accent table fixtures can be hung lower since no one will be walking under it. At this point, you can use the same rules as above, but can also go with what looks best.
