Chandeliers are great choices not only to add to the dcor of the room, but to alter the way the room appears in terms of the height. For instance, if you have a very low ceiling, fix a chandelier that throws light upwards. This gives the feeling of a raised ceiling. Alternately, if you have a high ceiling, a chandelier that throws light downwards will visually reduce the height of the room, and give it a more cozy feel. When placing chandeliers above dining tables, ensure that they are at least 30" above the surface of the table.
Antique chandeliers made of iron, brass or antlers should never be shiny. They can be polished to provide some luster but most owners prefer the old archaic feel that aged metal has. Slim-trim chandeliers may be antique but are not favorites since they do not generate the same ancient aura. You can identify fake antique chandeliers by rubbing the metal firmly with a clean cloth. Antiquing glaze are usually used on shiny metal to make them look older.
Tip: It is advisable to pack the different components of the chandelier separately―especially the crystals―to prevent them from grazing against one another while moving.
In determining a chandelier's height, remember that the higher you hang a chandelier, the smaller it looks. If you are hanging your fixture in a room with a low ceiling where it is necessary to walk under the chandelier, you might need to go smaller than the above formula suggests. For foyer chandeliers, allow for considerable door clearances and hang the chandelier so that the lowest point will be at least 7 or more feet from the floor.
