How To Properly Install Crystal Chandeliers In Your Home
By Vanessa A. Doctor

Crystal chandeliers make really good decorative elements in one's sanctuary. It enhances the relaxing and elegant atmosphere of family homes. Depending on the size of the house, crystal chandeliers should be installed in the right location so that it should be noticeable enough and not that overly decorative for the house.

Installing crystal chandeliers may seem difficult with the way you imagine it but once you get to know the mechanics, you'll surely be shocked at how easy it is to do the job.

Here are a few tips on how to find the right location and properly install a crystal chandelier for a more beautiful room without so much hassle to put up with.

Finding The Right Location

When looking for a good spot inside your house wherein you would want your crystal chandelier to hang, take note of the size of the room and the size of your crystal chandelier. Having a really big crystal chandelier in a medium sized room would really look overly done. Instead of hanging such a big chandelier, a small one would be perfect since it would not really catch so much of the attention of your guests when they come in.

It is a known fact that with large and elegantly created houses, crystal chandeliers are the best when they come in big sizes especially for the living room. With the large place, a big enough crystal chandelier would definitely complement the entire area.

Proper installation

When installing the chandelier, take note of some of these tips. Since crystal chandeliers are quite heavy and elaborately designed than other lighting elements, it takes really careful steps to carry out the installation. Here are the steps to follow:

1. Check the weight of your crystal chandelier. If it nearly does match the weight of the current lighting fixture that you have then there is no need to replace the ceiling junction box. However, if it is heavier, then you would have to purchase and install a new one that will support the weight of your new lighting fixture.

2. Disconnect the power plug that is connected to your chandelier. Use a circuit tester first to verify if the electricity is already out.

3. You can now start removing the old lighting and then take note of how it was installed by marking the wires with tape.

4. Attach hardware from the crystal chandelier to the mounting strap and if there is none, install one.

5. Screw the installed mounting strap in the junction box.

6. By the time you have your wires twisted from the crystal chandelier to the ceiling wires, twist the wire clockwise.

7. Finally, take a look at the manufacturer's manual for the other details of the installation process.
