How to extend chandelier length

Chandeliers usually hang over a dining room table or in an entrance or living room, and they add a touch of elegance to regular household lighting. In most cases a chandelier should hang 30 inches from the surface of a table or 6 ½ to 7 feet from the floor if it is in a living area. Most chandeliers come with an additional length of chain and wire so you can extend their length if you need to do so.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Stand on a solid and secure surface. Have an assistant hold the chandelier to support it while you extend its length.

  2. 2

    Remove the chain and wire of the chandelier from the hook in your ceiling that holds it.

  3. 3

    Select a new chain length for the chandelier, and place the chain through the hook to hold the chandelier in place.

  4. 4

    Place the chandelier back in its position gently.
