Chandeliers and Safety

Be sure that the electrical junction box in your ceiling is secured and rated for the extra weight that a vintage chandelier will have. Larger chandeliers can work in smaller rooms as long as they don’t hang to low. Most chandeliers come with an adjustable rod or chain so you can alter the hanging height as needed.
