WHAT SIZE CEILING LIGHT SHOULD I CHOOSE?
A ceiling light is generally one of the focal points in a room so it is important not to use a light that is too small as this will detract from the look you want to achieve. Use the guidelines below to help you determine the correct size fitting.
Room size smaller than 10 foot x 10 foot use a 17" to 20" diameter/width light.
Room size 12 foot x 12 foot use a 22" to 27" diameter/width light.
Room size 14 foot x 14 foot use a 24" to 32" diameter/width light.
For a room with other dimensions simply add the dimension together and the sum equals the diameter of light you will need. For example if your room is 12 foot by 14 foot you would add 12+14 which equals 26. Your light should be 26" in diameter.
If your room is particularly large/long you may have to consider using 2 ceiling lights to ensure the room looks balanced and that you achieve the level of light needed.
