Robert abbey bling chandelier installed over a dining table can have an immediate effect on the look and feel of a dining room – but if it is not properly installed – your good intentions can quickly turn into a shame spot. Off-center or low-hanging chandeliers are immediately recognizable – and they cannot only distract your dinner guests – but for some they may be a main injury waiting to happen. How to make sure your dining chandelier makes a lasting impression – but not for all the wrong reasons.
Take the dining room table and chairs from the dining room before your measurements. Let the remaining furniture against the wall at the moment. The first thing you need to do when deciding where your crystal crown will be installed is to find the center of the dining room in relation to your dining table. This may vary depending on the size of the room. Use the plastic box that comes with Robert abbey bling chandelier as the template for accessing the hole you will cut into the ceiling. Once you have access the hole cut for the box and mount, run a circuit from your power panel to the new chandelier’s dining room, or if you have an available circuit, you can pick up a feed as long as it can support additional load.

If replacing an existing fixture, remove the roof box if it is not rated for a Robert abbey bling chandelier. Most existing boxes do not. Turn off the current to the existing circuit, take the fixture and remove the roof box. Fit the roof box and the bracket according to the instructions supplied. Leave about 8 to 12 inches of cable hanging out of the box. Use the Rome stripper to remove the outer cover of the cable (if it is a new circuit).
Secure chandelier s fastened in the ceiling box. Strip about 3/4 inches of insulation from the ends of each wire in the ceiling box. Mount your Robert abbey bling chandelier and hold it up to the ceiling to measure the correct chain length for installation. For an 8-foot ceiling, the chandelier should hang slightly lower than 30-34 inches above the table top. For ceilings higher than 8 meters, add 3 inches to the height of each additional foot.
Make appropriate adjustments of the chain and cable length on the chandelier. Make your connections black to black, white to white, and earth to earth. Wrap each wire connector with electrical tape for extra protection, and gently plug the wires back inside the ceiling box while securing the chandelier to the bracket. Fit the chandelier and chain of the chandelier and insert the correct bulbs into the socket of the fixture. Turn the circuit back and test your new chandelier.
