Chandelier Proportions for Turret
mcbriecNovember 18, 2013
Hi Everyone, Our home remodel includes a turret entryway which is 14' by 14' and is 21 feet high. I am wondering what size the chandelier should be. The wrought iron chandelier I envision will have an open look, rather than a more "dense" look which would optically take up more space.

Given the open look I'm shooting for, as well as the height of the ceiling, I was imagining something about 4 feet wide and about 3 feet tall. My husband thinks that's way too big. Any advice on chandelier proportions would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

This should help you guys figure it out to the very inch! I assume the turret should be treated the same as you would a foyer. http://www.ehow.com/facts_7402765_size-chandelier-foyer.html
