How To Select The Right-Sized Ceiling Medallion?
Did you know there are 3 factors to consider when selecting the ideal size ceiling medallion?
- You should first think about the size of the fan or lighting fixture. Medallions should always be smaller or larger than the diameter of your ceiling fan or fixture. They should not be the same size.
- You need to also think about the height of the ceiling. Higher ceilings can accommodate larger medallions, and medallions that are 28-inches or larger can complement two-story foyers.
- Finally, be sure to consider the size of your room when selecting your medallion. For small rooms, small medallions are the most suitable ones. Large rooms can accommodate large medallions. For a typical dining room with an 8-foot to 9-foot ceiling, a medallion that is 18 inches to 26 inches in diameter works well.
