Some designers recommend that for each additional foot of ceiling height you should add about 3" to the suspension height. It's important to note however that not everyone agrees with this. Some designers feel that the ceiling height shouldn't affect the distance of the fixture from the tabletop. If this is the case in your home the best thing to do is hold the fixture over the table and move it up and down until it feels right.
One rule of thumb for hanging chandeliers: there should be at least 34" inches of clearance space between the chandelier and the table. If it is a wider chandelier, make sure that people won't bump their heads when getting up or sitting down. If you use your dining room as a home office, remember to have appropriate task lighting.
A large or fussy chandelier could take up too much visual room. Pick a chandelier that has simple lines and a small profile. That will create the effect of making your space appear larger. And that is how we come full circle to the scale. Remember it is all about scale.
Furnishing a small dining room can present a challenge, as any small space can be challenging. However, you may very well end up having a more efficient and attractive space since the lack of space can force you to focus on the essentials, and let go of what is unnecessary. Scale might very well be the single most important factor to consider, especially when you are furnishing a smaller sized dining room. Your dining furniture should be scaled according to the space you have.
