      1) Size a Medallion with the Golden Rule

 

  2) Adding an Expansion Ring

 

   

 Using the

 Golden

 Rule

 PHi (1.618) is known as the golden rule

 Example: If your Chandelier has a diameter of 18" (45.7cm)

 

 take the 18" x 1.618 = 29" Medallion diameter is in the correct proportions

 

 Remember the more detail you add to a room the larger it seems

        

 

 

   

 What is the

 Golden

 Rule

 PHi (1.618)

 The Ancient Greeks around 300 BC realized that there was a ratio that represented

 the natural proportions of both humans and art / architecture.  

 In simple terms, it is approximately a 1/3rd to 2/3rds ratio.

 

 This calculation is handy in sizing Medallions, Dividing walls with wainscotting

 and Boiserie or dividing columns, cabinetry etc.

  Adding A Ceiling Ring

 

 To enlarge a existing ceiling medallion

 or add to a new one, simply add a

 ceiling expansion ring.  

 Ring & Medallion in the photo.

 

 

 

 

 Affix the ring with construction adhesive and a brad nailer to the ceiling.

 Note: Check with a probe to make sure you do not puncture any wiring

           in the ceiling under the drywall.   

 

 Once dry, paint the gap between the ceiling medallion and the ring either the same

 color as the medallion, or a new color to amplify the ring.
