A chandelier is an ornate light fixture designed to be mounted on ceilings or walls. An evolution from the candelabra (candles as a source of light), chandeliers were invented and designed during the medieval era with multiple lamps that hung in branched frames and were used primarily by the wealthy to light large spaces. Toward the end of the 20th century, chandeliers did not light up, and they functioned more as a decorative focal point.

Incandescent light bulbs have been traditionally used in electric chandeliers, but more modern designs have begun to use fluorescent lamps and LEDs. Due to their traditionally large size, chandeliers are best suited for installation in larger spaces such as hallways, living rooms, dining rooms, and lounges; however, miniature chandeliers, that are smaller in size, allow for the installation in smaller spaces, such as bedrooms.

How low should a chandelier hang?

A general rule of thumb is that a chandelier should not hang any lower than 30 to 36 inches (76-91 cm) above a table. A range of 30 to 34 inches (76-86 cm) of height over a table is typical for an 8 foot (2.44 m) ceiling. Increase the space between the chandelier and the table 3 inches (7.6 cm) if the ceiling height is taller.

How do you hang a chandelier?

Before hanging a chandelier, make sure the power is turned off. The next steps are to secure the electrical box and assemble the chandelier. Do not forget to determine the chain length in relation to the ceiling height and distance the chandelier will hover above the table. The method of attaching the chandelier to the electrical box is dependent on the manufacturer’s instructions. Connect the wires, twist, and tuck them into the electrical box. The last step should be to add bulbs to the chandelier.

How do you clean a chandelier?

Cleaning a chandelier requires a step ladder and soft cloths. It is recommended to place a pad underneath the chandelier in case anything falls or drops. Remember to have the light switch turned off and work slowly and safely. It is also highly recommended to rotate oneself around the chandelier when cleaning rather than spinning the chandelier itself as this may lead to it loosening. A cleaning solution should be sprayed on the chandelier and wiped off with the soft cloth.
