Question
Alicia,

I a in the process of building a new home. The foyer is rather large--I'm not sure how large exactly--but I wanted to know how to determine whether or not the chandelier that I've chosen is the proper scale for that space. Any suggestions?

thank you!

Yolanda

Answer
Hello Yolanda,
Take a measurement of the space...width and height.  The new chandelier should be sized appropriately based upon the breadth and the height.  Typically the drop down will be above the entry door...and the width centered on the entry door.  

Good Luck!
