Decorative crystal chandeliers make spectacular feature lights and creative home owners and designers are using them nowadays in many rooms around the home. A few years ago it would have been unheard of to have a chandelier in your bathroom or kitchen! The beauty of crystal lighting relies on the prismatic refraction of light passing through the crystals creating the sparkle we all associate with lead crystal chandeliers. When the gradual build-up of dust and grime reduces this effect and your chandelier will begin to lose its sparkle.
KEEPING YOUR LIGHT FITTINGS LOOKING AS GOOD AS NEWMost light fittings come with instructions on how to fit them but not many have any information on how to keep them looking as good as new. Dirty light fittings not only look nasty but will reduce your light levels and waste energy. The slow build-up of dust and dirt on light bulbs can reduce their light output by up to 30% and if you add greasy, bug ridden shades you have a built in dimmer switch whether you want it or not.
