Chandeliers look great and the taller the ceiling, the bigger the chandelier you can go for. But, as good as that is to cause some serious impact in your visits, chandeliers face some problems when it comes to practical issues. For instance cleaning and changing bulbs. This is especially problematic if you want to make sure yours are kept in tip toe shape.
Well, to call thing by its name it is where the trouble can begin. I say can begin because there are quite a few options available to deal with these issues. This are good news, this does not have to be the end of the world.
So let’s face the facts: you buy a beautiful chandelier and then it’s time to assemble it. You do that, but then is time to clean it. So, what do you do? Step up in a very high ladder? It is an option, but not the safest one out there. Ok, so you decide you like your life and you want to play safe. So let’s play safe. You can call a contractor to lower your chandelier for you, but while this is a safe option, it is not a cheap one.
None of the above are fulfilling options. Fortunately these are not the only ones available. There are chandelier lifts. It’s a pretty clever option. Chandelier lifts get installed at the same time your chandelier is set in place, so there is a mechanism to lower your chandelier every time you want to clean it or change bulbs or just to look closely at it.
Even if you want a specialist to clean it, the price will be lower because there is not the whole issue of cleaning it in a high ceiling.
My advice is for you not to forget this option. Although it’s an investment, it will pay off throughout the years.
You might be wondering how it is done. If it’s complicated. The good thing is that it’s pretty easy. An electrician installs a lift in the attic and then a box is wired in the room to look like a light switch box. A key is used to lower and raise the chandelier. And this is all there is to it. Amazing, right!
