Higher higher, lower lower…
What height should you hang a pendant, lantern or chandelier? It’s a question I’m often asked.
Over staircases the light can be lower, as the light plays down the height of the stairwell to fill the space with light.
In Dining Rooms, over tables, you can afford to hang the fitting low over the table - so the light sparkles on the table setting - although do make sure you have a clear eye-line across the table to guests.
