When choosing a ceiling medallion for your home, numbers play an important role. Use the numbers here to help you decide what size ceiling medallion is right for your room.
- Measure the diameter and length of the room.
- Multiply the numbers to get the square footage of the room.
- Divide the number by 7.
- The final number is the number in inches that should be your ceiling medallion diameter in inches.
For example, a room that is 12' by 12' would be 144 square feet.
The ideal size for a ceiling medallion for this room would be about 20".
Ceiling medallions are sold in sizes that vary from 4" for a closet or dressing room to over 36" for a large room. For a large hall or ballroom, you'd install several medallions around the ceiling.
