Can I off center a dining room chandelier? ?
December 28, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are downsizing into a new house we are building and the dining room is only 12 x 10. I have a hutch that sits on the long wall but the placement of the table sits too close to the hutch if I center it under a center mounted chandelier. If I can off center the chandelier by two feet the symmetry of the placement will be perfect. What do design people say about this idea

You would want to center the chandelier over the table, not necessarily the center of the room. Builders will automatically center it in the room, without giving a thought to whether there will be a hutch, and then you would have to swag the chandelier over to the center of the table.

Move the electrical, and wiring perhaps. Why is that not an option?

Just tell the builder where you want it, so it's centered over the table. He will install it along the nearest joist to that.

Oh, Sara and rocketjcat, that is just what I wanted to hear. I just wanted to make sure I was not an odd ball when placing my chandelier over my table but not the center of the room.
