Style Guide.

Learn how to style a fixture like a pro with our helpful tips and tricks on hanging lighting in any space.

Living Room

When placing a chandelier or statement piece in your living room, take the length of the room (in feet) and multiply by the width of the room (in feet). Your answer changed to inches should be the ideal diameter of your living room lighting.


When hanging a linear pendant above your kitchen island, choose a fixture that leaves about 1/3 of your island countertop empty (split between either side).

When placing 2 or more pendants over your kitchen island, be sure there is about 30-36” of space between the bottom of the fixture and your countertop. There should always be about 30” of space between each fixture.

Dining Room

When placing a chandelier or linear pendant over a dining room table, be sure to hang it at least 36” above the top of the table. To ensure balance in your design, it is best to allow for 6” between the edge of your lighting and the edge of your table.


When placing lighting over a bed, you want your chandelier to be perfectly sized for your bed. For a Queen/King sized bed, 36” is usually a perfect fit. For a Full/Twin, 24” is best.

Instead of table lamps taking space on your nightstands, consider hanging minimal pendants as bedside lighting. You want to leave at least 10” of space between the tabletop and the bottom of the lamp so you can reach items like a glass of water or your alarm clock without bumping your lighting. Add more height if you want to add other décor to your nightstand.


When placing vanity lighting above your bathroom mirrors, be sure to choose lighting that is at least 3”-5” smaller than the width of your mirror. Lighting should be at least 70-80” from the floor.


When placing your wall-mounted front porch lighting, be sure to place it at least 66” above the ground for best results. When choosing a lighting fixture, you should choose proportions that are at about ¼ the size of your doorway.

When placing walkway or garden lighting, place each bollard 4’-8’ away from each other depending on the size of your landscape. When using our 12V Transformer garden lights, swapping your style is easy! Just detach the bollard and replace onto the same 12V transformer. Click here to view our 12V Collection.
