Lighting is essential when picking everything from fabrics to finishes.


Below is a list of all the different types of light fixtures:

  • Recessed Down Lights

  • Pendant Lights

  • (Semi and Full) Surface-mounted Lights

  • Wall Sconces

  • Chandeliers

Common Questions:

At what height do I hang my light fixture?

Chandeliers over a dining table: 34-36" from the top of the table or 30" if the light is semi-flush (to the bottom of the light).

Chandelier over a kitchen island should be hung 75" from the floor or 28-34" from the countertop to the bottom of the light.

What is the best size light for my space?

Take the length of 2 (out of the 4 walls) in a room, measured in feet (round to the nearest half foot) and add the measurements together. This is the size of a chandelier you should consider in your room.
