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.
As soon as you finally found the chandelier that you believe will go well with your home putting it to the ceiling is the next thing you have to do. But before that you have to make sure that the electric box can still accommodate additional lightning. Make sure as well that you will purchase the right bulbs.
