To create the illusion of a taller window, mount drapery rods 4″ – 8″ above the window casing.

You’d want an absolute minimum of 4″ between the top of the sofa back and the bottom of your mirror and also at least that much from the top of your mirror to the bottom of your crown. The first two points for chandeliers over a dining table both talk about the width of the chandelier.

Since it isn’t really being walked under but still “lived under”, is there an alternate rule for its placement?

When buying an area rug with a wide boarder should the whole rug be seen or would it still be correct to place it under the furniture?

I should be looking for a light fixture in the 24-27″ range, however a square lantern of that size would be way too big.

That is only one of dozens of mistakes that can happen when you use rules like inches and eye-height.

The height is dictated by whether the person in the room will be sitting, lying or standing (most of the time). Usually, hanging the rods up at the top of the highest windows works best but not always depending upon the specifics of the room. I would just be sure that it clears your head by at least a few inches when you are kneeling on your bed. I usually do is just hang them both on the rod and arrange them so that where the two panels meet in the middle, the edges are tucked in – you can’t even tell that it’s not one continuous panel. But the size and what else you want on that wall along with the mirror depends upon everything else going on in the room. I would go with something round (vs if you were hanging a single chandelier – you can go with oval or rectangular). I mentioned, the bed will be in the middle……how much or the window width should the nightstands take up?

When hanging two pieces of artwork, one above another, treat them as one large picture – find the center point between them and use the 56″ – 60″ rule. When hanging art pieces above a sofa or other piece of furniture, the grouping should ideally be about 2/3 the width of the furniture below it. To determine a good height for your light fixture, multiply the height of your ceiling (in feet) by 2. This answers a number of questions my clients ask all the time and it’s nice to have the answers all in one place.

We’ve had to fix holes in the walls twice where the part holding the rod was pulled from the wall (anchor and all) by a child. A lot of it depends upon the size of the buffet, the size of the room, and what else you have on and over the buffet. Instead of pushing furniture right up again the wall, pull it about 6″ out from the wall, as well as furniture being at least 6″ from another piece.

Using the other rule of subtracting one foot, you arrive at an 24″ fixture so the two rules are pretty consistent in this case.

I don’t care whether the pictures are at 34 inches or 93 inches from the floor (or anywhere in between): the results will be wrong. Would it be better to cover both windows with curtains or hang them between the two (about 6’ between the two)?

I hang the chandelier & how far away should it be hung from the wall & headboard (that is placed against the wall)?

In most cases, centering it between the head and foot of the bed or be a bit off center (more towards the foot of the bed) works.

I can only imagine that it’s so much fun but also pretty stressful to have all of those details to sort out. I found worked best for both situations was to put each of the chandeliers a little less than a third of the way in from the end of the table.

It’s definitely best to have a variety of shapes in a room but sometimes having two round or oval pieces of wall art can work just fine – especially if there are a lot of angles in the rest of the space.

All windows are the same size and, same height however due to a 3 step down the the ceileing heights vary considerably.
