While a traditional crystal chandelier can look at home in almost any setting if you want to go in for an ornate wrought iron chandelier or perhaps a contemporary one it is important to first determine that such a design will match your home décor. Remember while choosing a chandelier style you want to go in for one that matches your décor and not contrasts with it.
When choosing a chandelier for a particular room you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But if you have really high ceilings then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier the smaller it is going to appear.
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.
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.
A room with a chandelier it s always more impressive than not. The chandelier always stands out and makes the person walking into the room where it is hung stand up and take notice. It brings the eye to the ceiling and allows a person to take in the whole room rather than just what they see at eye level. A chandelier gives off an air of affluence and grace. A chandelier comes in a wide array of styles looks and even sizes. The most beautiful part of any room that is graced with a chandelier is the way that the chandelier lighting has created the feel and warmth that it has.
