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.
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.
Size of the room
The size of the room is essential when choosing a chandelier. To illustrate, a multi-tiered 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 single-tier 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. 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.
