Add A Touch Of Class With A Vintage Iron Chandelier

Perhaps the most elegant and stylish ways to improve your home, if you have the space that is, is to add a vintage iron chandelier. The great thing about the vintage iron chandelier is that it will never go out of style. People have used them effectively to change the interior of their home to feel like a Mediterranean villa or castle. Chandeliers like this are strong and resistant to corrosion, if they are well looked after they will no doubt last forever.

You will be able to find a vintage iron chandelier in a whole range of sizes to suit all the rooms in your house, from large rooms like living and dining rooms, to smaller spaces like porches and hallways. Iron, when it is heated, is one of the most malleable and flexible metals there is, so it is easily shaped into whatever design you can think of.

Before you go ahead and buy a new chandelier you need to work out where it is going to be placed and take measurements from this area. There will need to be a good few inches of gap between the edge of the chandelier and the nearest walls. The light from the chandelier can fade some wallpapers and even char them, in some cases they can even start fires. You should also check out the available supports in the roof where you intend to hang the light. A small chandelier can still weigh quite a bit, so be sure to only fix it to a main support. If the support isn’t strong enough it could cost you a small fortune or be dangerous.

Keeping an iron chandelier clean is pretty simple. A simple solution of warm water, mild detergent and a spot of baking soda will solve any problems you have. Your cleaning rag should only be slightly damp, when you are done you should wipe the chandelier dry, this is vitally important if you live in a humid climate.
