A beautiful lighting fixture over a dining table is kind of like jewelry, it completes the space. So, how do you know the appropriate height to hang a light fixture over a dining table?? A good rule of thumb.......
is to hang your light fixture 30 - 35 inches above your table if your ceilings are 8 feet tall. Add 2 to 3 inches for every foot above that.
Following that rule of thumb should get you in the right area. After that, have someone hold your light fixture up to the height it would be hanging. Take a step back & give it a good look. Adjust the height as necessary to what you think looks balanced. Good Luck! source via
