It is important to store each and every part of the chandelier in a systematic manner so that nothing is misplaced; usually the parts of an elegant dcor item such as this, are irreplaceable. Because we're dealing with a fragile element such as crystal, it is imperative to pack all the pieces separately to prevent them from rubbing against each other while shipping. Here is how you should go about it.
To create the illusion of height, have an upward facing chandelier that reflects light on the ceiling. To create the illusion of width, place multiple wall sconces on your long wall that throw light both, up and down. Light fixtures can be works of art too, you know.
Start by being proactive and dusting your chandelier often and thoroughly. This will keep excess dirt off your chandelier. Once a month dusting will keep most hanging lights shining nicely. Lighting in or near kitchens or fireplaces (or even in areas where you regularly burn candles) will require dusting weekly since they are in locations that collect grease and soot. Also, dust your chandeliers and other hanging lamps often if you have a smoker in your household. This smoke clings to surfaces just as fireplace smoke does.
Use a ladder to remove the canopy of the old fixture, and disconnect the wiring. This connection between the old light fixture and the house wiring will have a pair of twist-on connectors, which can be removed by hand.
