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.
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.
When most of us think of dining rooms we think of tables, buffets, chairs and chandeliers. But something equally as important in the dining room are the curtains and drapes. Amidst all of the hard furniture that tends to fill this room it's wonderful to have some fabric and add a touch of softness. So even if you don't normally include flowing curtains and drapes it's worth considering adding some to the dining room.
Even the accessories, such as plates, flatware, and china all offer an amazing variety of choices. And yet, amid all of the creative freedom, there are still a few technicalities that have to be addressed. The table has to be the right size for the amount of space the dining room offers, table linens need to be durable enough to stand up to the level of use they're likely to see, and the chandelier must be hung at just the right height.
