Hanging A Chandelier

All Long Island homes will look better with a new chandelier. This elegant lighting fixture will make your home look much better while also increasing its value. Most people have considered adding a chandelier to their houses, but few will do so. The problem is that people believe installing a chandelier is going to be very difficult.

It won’t be easy, but you can do it. Gather your supplies before getting started. You’ll need the following items.

  • Drill or screwdriver
  • Wire strippers
  • A sufficiently tall ladder
  • Pair of plies
  • A simple tape measure
  • Wire tester

Once you’ve obtained everything, you should continue to the steps below.

Steps To Installing A Chandelier

Before doing anything, open the chandelier box. You will find the user manual. You need to look through it carefully because it will contain installation instructions. You’ll also need to find out how you’ll hang the chandelier.

Next, you need to turn off the power at the electrical panel.

Next Steps

With the power off, you should remove the existing lighting fixture. Unhook the wires and remove the old mounting hardware. Now, install the new mounting bracket.

Return to the instruction manual to find out how to assemble the chandelier.

Hanging & Wiring

Are you going to be hanging the chandelier with a chain? If so, you should make sure that you have the perfect length. Next, thread the wire through the chain and make sure you have plenty of leftovers. Use the mounting bracket to support the weight of the chandelier while connecting the wiring.

Once the wires are connected, you can finish hanging the chandelier. Return to your electrical panel and restore power. Test the chandelier to make sure everything is working as it should.

If you need assistance, you should contact a professional Long Island electrician who will take care of the installation for you.
