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 (2628 inches). But, if you have really high ceilings, then you should go in for a bigger one (3436 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier, the smaller it is going to appear. Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus, after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling, and 34 inches for the chandelier hook, the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again, you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table, you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
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 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. 3050 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 2.12.2 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.
A spotlight will help you to focus lighting on special works of art and help to bring about their beauty. With down lights, you can provide accent lighting for tabletops and other specific areas. Diffused Lighting: Many people like to have sober diffused lighting in their home. They do not like the glare of very bright lights. If you too desire such lighting, you should choose a chandelier with uplights. An uplight will throw light on the ceiling which then gets diffused and provides a very warm glow.
Crystals in chandeliers were originally used to help reflect and spread the light. Crystal glass was found to be the best material for this purpose. Into the 19th century, roped pendants and hanging drops were added to chandelier designs. With the discovery and use of electricity, the antique chandelier has of course moved with the times, and now incorporates electric or gas lighting. Candlelit chandeliers are still available, however, and can add some wonderful unique elegance and personality in the lighting of your home.
