I had been looking at this light for months, because it is wide but not tall. I have 8 foot ceilings and was ready to have to modify by leaving pieces out to make it not hang too low. I used just one link of the chain. It's in our bedroom above the bed, but if I had to walk under it, I would have shortened it. I am not an electrician and had never hard wired a light in (I'm handy and brave), but youtube helped and I did it no problem. You do need someone to hold the light up for you while you are twisting wires, though. 6 bulbs is a lot of light and I have 25 watt bulbs in...might install a dimmer on the switch. Took about 10 minutes to install, not including unpack and taking down the old ceiling fan.
