Linear chandelier dining room adds lighting and elegance to any dining room or breakfast nook. Use the money you save on professional installation to buy a better luminaire with several of the features you want. With just a few tools and as little as one hour of working time, you will have a chandelier hanging in no time.
Turn off the power to the junction box on the power switch or the group control panel. Different luminaires in one room can be on different circuits, so make sure you have turned off the right one. Remove the new linear chandelier dining room and its parts from the box. Keep in mind that some chandelier mounting or adjustment may be needed. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Attach the chandelier bracket to the coupling box in the ceiling. The screws must fit into suitable holes in the housing of the coupling. It is easier to pull a thread out on either side of the mounting bracket.
Hold the chandelier up to the ceiling and allow it to hang off the wire while another person measures the appropriate height. (Dinner crowns should be about 30 to 34 inches above the table top, for a standard 8 foot ceiling.) When the linear chandelier dining room is held at the correct height, mark the wire where it touches the ceiling with tape or a marker line. Add at least one foot of additional thread beyond the target you just made. This extra wire gives you room to work with during installation. It also provides extra wire for lowering the chandelier, if necessary, for any future changes in table height. Cut off any excess wire, using cutters.
