    Love the formulas, except that they result in 3 different sizes:

    1) “To size a chandelier in your room. Measure the length and width of the room and add those figures together. Example the room is 12’ X 14”, (12+14=26? – the chandelier is 26”

    My room is 10′x10′ therefore my chandelier size would be 20″.

    2) “To size a chandelier to your table, measure the width of your table and divide by 2″
    My table is 72″ therefore chandelier size should be 36″

    3) “Dining Table seats 6-8 people, the chandelier diameter is 25”-29”

    My table would seat this many people therefore therefore my chandelier size should be 25″-29″
