When choosing your Colonial Dining Room Wooden Chandeliers, keeping mind these useful tips. Generally speaking, the guideline for chandelier size and placement above a table is as follows. First, the chandelier width should be about half that of the table length. Furthermore, the width of the chandelier should not exceed the width of the table. Additionally, for height placement, the recommendation is to center & hang a chandelier approximately 30 to 36 inches over a table with an 8-foot ceiling height. If your ceiling is higher than 8 feet, mount the chandelier an additional 3 inches higher for each foot of ceiling.
Historical Wood Chandelier Origins
Historically, In the early New England period homes Colonial Dining Room Wooden Chandeliers were the centerpiece for illumination in any room. Since trees were plentiful, craftsmen made use of this natural resource. Thus from the simplest frame homes to the most elegant estates, Colonial wooden chandeliers provided the lighting. Just as in those early New England times our craftsmen combine the beauty of turned wood with gracefully formed metal to create lighting that truly is American. The result is an heirloom Colonial reproduction chandelier. By and large, whether you are decorating an Antique Saltbox, Cape Cod Cottage, or New England Farmhouse, any of our traditional dining room wooden chandeliers are ideal.
