Chandeliers are ornamental or decorative light fixtures that are used for ceiling lighting. Usually chandeliers are centerpieces in big halls churches public galleries palaces hotels mansions etc. Common residential houses also have cheap chandeliers in the living room which are simpler versions of the chandeliers and are not as extravagant as the ones seen in public and commercial buildings. Chandeliers can be lit up with candle lights incandescent lights and also by energy saving bulbs.
The vintage and traditional type of chandeliers use candle lights or incandescent lights for illuminations and have yellow-tinted illumination while modern chandeliers have fluorescent or LED light bulbs and give bright white luminescence. Lighting chandeliers with candle lights is not practically possible on an everyday basis hence modern chandeliers have electric bulbs that are designed to look like candle lights.
The fact that ceilings of rooms are not of the same height should not be forgotten. We ship our chandeliers with chains of 7 links i.e. 30-50 cm long depending on the type of the chain. It is essential to consider what clearance under the chandelier is required taking the height of the user into account. The usual distance between the bottom part of the chandelier and the floor is 2.1-2.2 meters. With regard to the fact that the height of chandeliers with a chain as stated in our catalogue does not include the length of the chain the length of the chain and the hanger in a canopy whose height is between 10 and 20 cm depending on the size of the chandelier must be added to the height of the chandelier. In cases where the ceiling is not high enough it is possible to shorten the chain. The chain can be shortened up to the length of one link which is necessary for joining the hanger and the body of the chandelier together. Should such a substantial shortening be insufficient a different type of chandelier should be purchased. If the chandelier has already been delivered and you need a longer chain it has to be ordered in the required length along with the flex which should be changed as well because its length is insufficient as well.
In case of large chandeliers their weight plays an important part. It is important to find out where and to what ceiling construction the chandelier will be installed or otherwise attached. You should take into consideration that an 18-arm chandelier for example can weigh up to 17kilos and such a weight will be attached to one point on your ceiling. In the case of some especially large chandeliers the construction of the ceiling should be assessed by a structural engineer.
A crystal chandelier can be placed anywhere. The most popular place to hang a crystal chandelier is definitely the living room followed by the bedroom hall and dining room. We have also encountered a crystal chandelier in a bathroom however it was a huge room with a perfect system of ventilation to take away humidity which can influence the lifetime and functionality of the chandelier as well as the health of the user. Our chandeliers are shipped with IP code 20 (effective against insertion of fingers or similar objects but not insulated against any harmful ingress of water). A customer / user is fully liable for installing a chandelier in an environment contrary to the design parameters thereof as well as for any damage to the chandelier caused by placing it in such an environment.
If you re looking for a chandelier lighting today you have many options from antique looking to contemporary pendant chandeliers. You can even find chandelier shades to change the look of your already existing chandelier. Many people prefer this type as the light is not as harsh as the typical chandelier that has exposed bulbs. If you have an already existing light fixture installing a new chandelier can be as easy as turning off the power removing the old fixture and connecting the color coded wire to your new fixture. If you don t feel comfortable doing it it s an easy and quick job for an electrician. Take a look at what s out there there s sure to be something that suits your style.
