When someone is purchasing a light fixture online there are frequently asked questions that I get about size, diameter, how high something should be ... this year I'm going to do a deeper dive about each of the FAQs I get.
Beginning with the basics of hanging a light fixture and some of the measurements you should take before purchasing. I know it can be intimidating but the more you can educate yourself, the fewer mistakes you will make. Below are a few averages - when in doubt, ask a designer but I hope this will answer most of your questions!
