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.
A typical large-sized chandelier is not perfect for a normal sized house because it requires a high ceiling and eats up a lot of space as well. They are only perfect for homes with high ceilings and enough space to accommodate a large extravagant fixture. If you have a chandelier in your home and it is a black chandelier then every time you enter your home you will feel like it an old classic period. Black chandeliers with crystals remind you of the past times and your friends and guests will feel the same when they will enter your home.
Chandeliers date all the way back to the medieval times. The only people to have chandeliers during this time were the wealthy and the lights could be moved from room to room. If the lighting was needed in a different room it was picked up and carried. The chandelier was then set down and relit if any of the candles had gone out.
When you re speaking of chandeliers the first thing you must speak about is chandler lighting. The lighting coming off of a chandelier is always beautifully brilliant and magnificent. There are many chandeliers that actually enhance that brilliance. Chandelier makers have always strove to create the most light output. Many makers have created whole pieces that are made of reflective silver so that they could increase the light output. Certain styles of chandelier have placed mirrors around or among the bulbs to increase the light going into the room. When you place mirrors on a chandelier not only do you increase output you also increase the ability to play with the lighting. With a small twist of a mirror the light is bounced to another part of the room or made to hit another mirror. With that thought in mind you also have the ability to cut and etch the mirrors to create a large range of visual effects from rainbows to circles to a split beam that dances on the wall. The way a chandelier lights up the room is a magnificent sight.
Chandeliers have always been associated with power and wealth and subsequently through the ages many monarchs have owned chandeliers both because of the immense glamour they bring to their surroundings but also because they were seen as a symbol of high class status and demonstrated their wealth. Although a genuine chandelier was not to be created until the 12th century during the 8th century hanging lamps became more decorative and artistic a shadow of the extravagance and beauty that would one day be associated with chandeliers. Between the 11th and the 15th century the Flemish town of Dimant became famous for its chandelier brass works and in the 16th century the Dutch brass ball chandelier became popular. Over the next couple of centuries chandeliers became popular particularly for the very wealthy and royals. The chandeliers changed in many ways shapes and sizes as technology and fashion modernised and transformed.
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.
