Types of crystal chandeliers by mounting type

There are two main varieties of chandelier lamps. 

Suspension models

Their design is one or more plafonds, suspension for installation. A chain, string or cord is used as a suspension, through which electrical wires go to the sockets. The place where the wires are connected is masked by a cup-shaped decorative element, which is located on the side of the ceiling. Chandelier is mounted on a metal hook, which is mounted in the ceiling.

The advantage of this type of chandeliers is the ability to reduce the distance of the lighting fixture from the ceiling, by cutting a cord or string, reducing the number of chain links. Varieties of models of the pendant type include:

  1. Single chandelier lamps. These are chandeliers with a single lamp. Convenient for zoning kitchen rooms, where you need to light the dining table.
  2. With a paired number of lamps, triple. Hanging-type lamps are on the bar, due to which the lighting of separate zones or small rooms will be convenient.
  3. Classic variants with three or five horns. Provide an even distribution of light flow.
  4. Tiered. The use of such devices provides the brightest possible light. Crystal tiered chandeliers look harmonious in complex interiors.

Ceiling models

These are lighting fixtures whose design consists of a special mounting bar and an element decorating the mounting area (from which the plafonds are derived). Light sources can be mounted directly in the chandelier.

Fixation of the mounting bar is carried out by self-tapping screws close to the ceiling, to give an aesthetic appearance uses an element that resembles a plate, tightly fitted to the ceiling. Crystal ceiling chandeliers made of Bohemian glass are used in rooms where the ceiling height is standard or small.
