I don't have a dining room table yet but have to hang my chandelier. How high from the floor should it be? We have high ceilings (10-12ft high).
Thanks for any guidance!
The electrician who hung mine, hung it 60" from the floor. The standard table is 30" tall and you want your chandelier about 30" from the top of the table.

That is all good info, but, if you are tall you may want to hang it a bit higher. Even if your not that tall you still may find it more comfortable to have it hanging above your head not looking right at it. 60 inches = 5 feet = eye level for most average women and our guys are even taller I ended up raising mine to about 36 inches above the table and I think it is perfect.
A professional installer told us 66" - equaled the top of his head, no measuring tape required.
we have 10' ceilings in our new house and I will be having the electrician hang it ~ 36" above the table I think... the light is about 30" tall and ~ 32" wide and I think for everything to look balanced, it will need to be about that height...
