We are often asked the question of how many arms a chandelier should have to light a particular room. The following guide should help you answer the question: Multiply the width of the room by the length (both in meters) and again by 15. The number you get is just informative and should equal the Watt power (W) the main lighting of the room should have. Light requirement is above all dependent on the type of the room (living room, hall, dining room) which is either set out by a regulation or required by a user.
Chandeliers are ornamental or decorative light fixtures that are used for ceiling lighting. Usually, chandeliers are centerpieces in big halls, churches, public galleries, palaces, hotels, mansions, etc. Common residential houses also have cheap chandeliers in the living room, which are simpler versions of the chandeliers, and are not as extravagant as the ones seen in public and commercial buildings. Chandeliers can be lit up with candle lights, incandescent lights and also by energy saving bulbs.
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. The size of the room is essential when choosing a chandelier. To illustrate, a multitiered chandelier is suitable for lounges with staircases which will then be dominated by the chandelier, no matter which side it is being viewed from. Conversely, small rooms should be fitted with singletier chandeliers or a flush mount. In both cases chandeliers can be combined with wall, table or standing lamps.
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.
These factors brought massive changes to chandelier design throughout the ages. 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.
