How high should a chandelier hang?

This is personal but there are a number of points of attention.
Do you want to be able to walk under the lamp? Then we recommend a minimum height of two meters, the height of most doors.
If the lamp is hung above a dining table or coffee table, the lamp can hang lower.
We recommend a height of at least 160 cm measured from the floor to the lowest point of the lamp.
But in high rooms it is nicer if the lamp is also higher, this enhances the feeling of space.
The higher the room, the higher the lamp can hang, see the photos above.
The bottom of the chandeliers in the photos is approximately 230 cm measured from the floor, the two rooms and the corridor are 365 cm high.

How big should a chandelier be?

The diameter of our collection of chandeliers varies from 40 to 100 cm. For a large room around 3 meters high, a lamp with a diameter of 50 – 90 cm is sufficient.

The diameter of the copper Dutch chandelier in the photo is 90 cm. The lamps in the hallway have a diameter of approximately 50 cm. That is relatively large for the space, but because of the height it is possible. If there were hanging lanterns or pocket chandeliers, a diameter of approximately 30 cm would suffice.

The kitchen is 265 cm high, the Italian chandelier has a diameter of 50 cm and hangs at 160 cm measured from the floor.

And it’s personal, a “small” lamp can indeed be a nice eye-catcher.

In order to give you good advice, it is therefore important that you measure the height of the rooms.

The Goedenberg on the Keppel estate

Our chandelier collection is on display in De Goedenberg farm on Keppel estate in Hummelo.
The farm is a municipal monument and has been restored to its former glory inside and out.

Sustainable business

Antique lighting is sustainable by definition, the raw materials were extracted many years ago and can therefore be reused for many years to come.

In addition to the restoration and sale of antique chandeliers, we are also committed to sustainable nature management at Landgoed De Goedenberg.
In a series of five articles, we explain how the themes of sustainability and nature management are leading in our business operations. Visit the website of the Goedenberg for more information.

Our two Shetlanders Mindy and Mira, half-sisters, ensure that the land is grazed naturally. This means that heavy mowers do not have to be used and soil life is preserved.
