I need help selecting a chandelier. What do I do?
We can assist you. Come by the showroom or send us an e-mail with a detailed description of what you are looking for and in what color. We will do our best in selecting choices for you. ( A little tidbit: For a dining room chandelier, add the length of the room to the width of the room. This will give you a rough idea of the diameter of the chandelier. For example: a 10' x 15' room would use a 25' diameter chandelier.)

(ceiling) – 7 ft. = 6 ft. –1 ft. = 5 ft. downrod
