    One website said that the best way to choose the size of the chandelier is to add the dimensions of the room.

    "A simple way to determine a chandelier size is to add the dimensions of the room together in feet and then convert the answer to inches. The answer in inches should equal the diameter of the fixture. So if your room measures 10' x 14' the diameter of the fixture should be about 24"."

    interior designers suggest that the kitchen's light fixture should be the close-to-ceiling type, since its one of the busiest part of the house. save the hanging and dangling light fixtures to the dining room. hope i make sense. haha!

    you can ask an interior designer about that. or you can do your own measurements.

    just medium sized so that the lights would not be glaring.

    Depends on the size and the height of your ceiling. Choose the one with the moderate light. It's a bit uncomfortable to have a chandelier with a light that's too bright.

    I think the size depends on the size of the room. It would look too cramped or too spacious if you do not take into consideration the size of the dining room/area.

    i think a medium sized chandelier put high in the ceiling can be a good choice for the dining room. the light should be yellow and slightly dim.

    you can try asking a help of an ID. i guess a small-sized chandelier is just fine for the kitchen

    depends on how high your ceiling and how big the dining room is.
