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.
The history of chandeliers is as varied as the styles and material that a chandelier is made out of. From the first time that someone realized how brilliantly lit a domicile was if you had multiple candles burning above people s heads or their natural line of sight. Chandeliers jumped from mere light fixtures high above peoples head to a craftsman s work of art. During the early 19th century chandeliers were made to look shine and display their light in a specific well crafted way. In fact there are old rot iron chandeliers that the lighting itself is part of the style. There were many chandeliers made back in the turn of the century to create a desired shadow displayed on the walls and the floor of the room that it was placed in. Legend has it that Edison created a chandelier made entirely of mirrors and it gave off so much light that it allowed the doctor to perform surgery on his Edison s mother. Where the story is true or not chandeliers have become more and more brilliant at time has worn on. As chandeliers have become more modern the way they show off their light has also become more modern.
