Ceiling Lights:

AT WHAT HEIGHT SHOULD I HANG MY CEILING LIGHT?

Lights in sitting rooms, bedrooms and hallways should be hung approximately 7 feet above floor level. Please remember that this is only a basic guideline - it is your room, so hang the light fitting at a height you are comfortable with. Another point to consider is that a light will look larger the lower it hangs and smaller if your hang it higher. 

The same basic rules apply to hanging lights in entrance halls or foyers, but if you have a double height ceiling over two floor, ideally the light fitting should not hang below the second floor. If you are hanging your light higher to compensate for the two story setting, you may wish to consider adding a couple of inches to the diameter of the fitting you choose to ensure it does not look too small for the setting.
