Why do people want to have a chandelier in their home? Number one, they are exceptionally picturesque, switched on or not. It’s really impossible to disagree. But maybe nobody could better the style of the chandeliers in the evening, when all of its light bulbs are luminous. Couldn’t say more because the glass refracting the beam shimmers in a very enchanting way that anyone can be spellbound with the flicker and the charisma. Next reason probably is their worth. These lighting fixtures has been around for almost forever that it’s hard to ignore them. When they are looking like that who could accuse any person for wanting them as their home’s centerpiece? They could turn a bungalow into a palace by just switching the light on.

Next big question: if a crystal chandelier is so impressive why then there are those who wouldn’t dare own them? Number one probably is the size. Then because they are costly. And then of course no one loves cleaning them. If we analyze, these problems are in fact easily resolved. In terms of breathing space, a downsized lighting fixture such as mini-chandeliers could fit even a bathroom. When it comes to the budget, by having a simple one you can reduce the zeroes in the price tag. If you believe these lights use too much electricity, ask your dealer to show you an energy-efficient fixture.

In terms of maintenance, yes chandeliers are actually rather pestilent to dust-“mendokusai” if you ask the Japanese. You have to choose a different cleaning material per parts, always being careful not to blemish the other while cleaning the other. Unless you have lighting fixtures with ten to twenty light bulbs you need to detach each first before cleaning the substructure. But when it comes to the number of the branches, you can limit it down to two or three so you have minimal problems cleaning the arms and metal works.

The first no-no when cleaning your metal ware is spraying a cleaning solution with ammonia. Ammonia as we may know is used for cleaning the bathroom, window panes and glass. If your lighting fixture though is made from metal or silver finish use a cleaning solution especially made for that instead. This is to ensure that the coating will not be blemished by the abrasive substance, something you should always prevent. Some retail stores after buying a lighting fixture offer the cleaning solution directly. But if you think you can save more by preparing a home-made solution it is also good. As a matter of fact, spraying detergent or vinegar on the crystal bulbs is in fact as helpful as the commercial cleaners.

Be carefu not to directly spray the mixture into the light bulb. If the chandelier is hard to reach, use a high ladder when cleaning for safety reasons. The best way in cleaning your mounted lighting fixture is to at least remove them by pieces twice every year, that way no dust could accumulate.

Crystal chandelier enhance the appearance of your living or dining rooms. Its bright illumination provides the required amount of light and at the same time exude elegance and style. Or you may want to try contemporary chandeliers.
