Many homeowners throughout the Chesapeake area are choosing chandeliers in lieu of typical lighting fixtures because of the classical elegance and beauty they typically lend to the spaces in which they’re installed. Chandeliers are also becoming more popular in commercial buildings like high-end retail stores and showcase rooms. If you’re thinking about your lighting options in your property, it’s worth taking a look at some of the modern chandelier options available.
Nipper Electric in Chesapeake offers professional chandelier installation to our local customers. These fixtures require careful installation that adheres to applicable electrical codes. We can help you find a new chandelier that looks great in your space and handle installation swiftly and safely.
Choosing the Right Chandelier
You can find all types of chandeliers today, from minimalistic contemporary designs to classical candelabra-style light fixtures. It’s also possible to build your own chandelier out of various natural materials, including driftwood and antlers. No matter what type of home or commercial property you’re upgrading with a chandelier, you can find one that suits your style and preferences.
It’s also vital to consider the size of your chandelier. Too small, and it will do little to light the space effectively. Too large and it will be visually imposing or potentially even hazardous. A good rule of thumb when deciding on a chandelier size is to add the lengths of the room’s dimensions in feet and then choose a chandelier that is the same number of inches in diameter. For example, if your room is 12 feet by 12 feet, you should choose a chandelier that is 24 inches in diameter.
It is also essential to consider the height of the chandelier. As a standard, chandeliers should hang at least seven feet above the floor. However, if you are positioning a chandelier specifically to light your dinner table or another feature, the chandelier should hang roughly 30 inches above the top surface of that feature you’re lighting.
