Lighting is about appearances and chandeliers steal the show in contemporary style.
Don't feel bound by convention when choosing one.
Traditional guides will will have you measuring your room and converting the measurement from feet to inches to determine the appropriately sized chandelier for your room. They will also advise you to consider the amount of visual space a chandelier will take up and recommend something ranging from ornate to minimalistic accordingly.
You will be told to suspend a chandelier 30 inches above a dining room table or 3-4 feet if you have a very high ceiling. They will go on to suggest putting it in non traditional areas other than a foyer or dining room like a walk in closet or over a clawfoot tub, etc, etc,
These are all very good ideas and rules of thumb but ultimately there is no exact formula and fundamentally you need to do what makes you happy.
