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.
They have been in use since medieval times i.e. since the sixteenth century and are believed to have originated from European countries. In ancient days crystals glasses and ceramics were used to make chandeliers of different sizes and shapes. Chandeliers generally have metal branches which fit the light holders. The metal branches are highly decorated with art work and stylish designs. The traditional chandeliers have flower leaf and creeper designs on the metal branches. But modern chandeliers have classy and trendy art work. The classification of chandeliers is based on the materials that are used to make them. Most of the chandeliers are white in colour because the lighting in chandeliers is by refraction of light through the crystals and glasses used but there are also black chandeliers which are pretty popular because they portray an exotic look. The various types of chandeliers have been discussed below.
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.
Chandeliers are defined as ornate lighting fixtures that are suspended from the ceiling which come with two or more branches or tiers. The structure of the chandelier serves several purposes namely to hold the light bulbs and other chandelier parts that add to the structural integrity lighting function and aesthetic value of the fixture.
Chandeliers are still considered elegant and may have a bit of the status symbol connected to them. There are so many different designs and sizes to choose from it can become overwhelming. In this day and age the prices of chandeliers are a bit more affordable so that one does not have to be rich to own one
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.
