Candlestick or Candlestick: What’s the difference?
When looking for ceiling lights, you may be thinking of options like a chandelier. Once you’ve entered the world of chandeliers, you may also notice that some of these lighting fixtures are known as “chandeliers.” You may be wondering what the difference is between a candle holder and a candle holder. This guide will give you an overview of the differences between the two lamps.
What is a chandelier?
In short, a chandelier is defined as any ceiling fixture that features two or more arms with light sources. They usually include a series of crystals or glasses that refract the light from the arms, thus illuminating the light. By definition, chandeliers are accepted to be a minimum of 12 inches in diameter.
What is a Chandelier?
The main defining difference between a chandelier and a chandelier is the diameter size of the fixtures. While a candle holder must meet a minimum size of 12 inches in diameter, a candle holder is defined as one that ranges from 9 inches to 12 inches in diameter. Once these light fixtures get smaller than 9 inches, they are generally referred to as pendant lights.
Aside from size, a chandelier can be nearly identical to a chandelier with the same number of arms, lights, crystals, or other details; just on a smaller scale.
In all seriousness, these lights may share a lot of different features outside of size. Both can have two or more arms with two or more light sources. They can feature drum shades, tapered shades, chandelier-style lights, scrolls, crystals, and more.
Today, many manufacturers are creating identical versions of the same light in both chandeliers and chandeliers. This makes it easy for homeowners to find the right ceiling light for their space, based on the overall size of the room (or, in some cases, the dining room table).
You can also find chandeliers and candle holders in several different styles, including contemporary, traditional, rustic, modern, shabby chic, romantic, and many, many more.
It should also be noted that Japanese candles may be marketed as “candlesticks”. When shopping for these particular light fixtures, be sure to take note of the size. Never assume that a lamp marked “chandelier” is the actual size of a chandelier. Always take note of the dimensions listed for the light fixture to ensure it is the correct size and type of fixture for your space.
At what height should I hang my chandelier or chandelier?
Once you’ve found the right lamp, you’ll need to know how high (or low) to hang it. Fortunately, the general rules are exactly the same for both lamps. The chandelier or candle holder should hang approximately 30 inches from the bottom of the fixture to the top of the table.
For foyers or other spaces, you’ll want your lighting to hang at least 7 feet (about 84 inches) from the floor to the bottom of the ceiling light. This prevents you (and your guests) from tripping over it.
In short, the main difference between these two lights simply comes down to size.
