5. How to order good quality hotel chandelier in your required design ?
Now you have got some basic knowledge of hotel chandeliers, but how do you know the exact procedure when you plan to purchase your own custom lighting fixtures?
In the hope of helping you find your perfect hotel lighting, here are 8 tips for you when ordering your hotel chandeliers for your hospitality project.
Work with proper custom lighting manufacturers
The first thing you need to do when ordering your hotel chandelier is to find a suitable manufacturer.
The custom lighting manufacturer you work with should be reliable, with great experience in creating custom hotel chandeliers, and a strong technical team.
A good custom lighting manufacturer will guarantee the whole production process going smoothly and efficiently, predict the problems that might be encountered in the very first stage, and provide feasible advice.
Thus, in my opinion, there are two major characteristics that your manufacturers should have: reliability and capability.
Communicate with your supplier
It’s important to let your manufacturer know about your design idea and where to install your custom lighting.
In this way, the manufacturer can work out the structure of the lighting fixtures, decide on materials, and make sure the product specifications matching your requirements before the production of the custom lighting.
It will do well if you can provide the supplier with design shop drawings or photos, cause they will have a better understanding of what you need.
Confirm the production drawings
It’s alright if you can’t provide the design shop drawings to your manufacturer, cause they can prepare for you.
After the manufacturer shows you the production drawings, you should check in details if they are compliant with your own design, then confirm with the manufacturer as soon as you can.
Confirm the finished sample in details
When your manufacturer provides you with finished samples or material samples, remember to check in details and make sure that the samples well match with your original design.
If there is any change you want to make, even the slightest ones, please do contact your manufacturer soon.
If the change you need deforms your original design, work with your manufacturer to find a solution together.
Remember: keep the confirmed samples cause it will come in handy when you go through the inspection of goods later.
Be aware of extra-large custom chandeliers
Extra-large custom chandeliers are of great importance for a hotel, cause they are usually luxurious and magnificent.
But more importantly, efficient communication should be had with the manufacturer, for they should know about the structure of the extra-large chandelier and the way of disassembling it.
In this way, the transportation of the custom chandelier can be easier, not only saving expenses but also ensuring the lighting fixtures can be well protected from start to finish.
Besides, if the manufacturer can handle the knock-down construction well, it’s conducive for them to produce the custom chandelier, and the process of installation can be more convenient.
As each custom chandelier is in different designs and shapes, the packaging for the custom hotel lighting is quite critical for the whole project.
After the demountable part, the custom chandelier is in a smaller size. It’s a good way to save expenses on transportation, and better protect the chandelier during the whole process.
To design a more proper package structure, your manufacturer should take modes of transport into your consideration.
What delivery way you choose is based on your project schedule. Then you can communicate with your manufacturer to arrange the package.
Normally, airfreight delivery and express delivery expect more and thicker styrofoam, or layers of cartons when it comes to arranging the package. But ocean shipment does not require that much.
When the production starts, you should arrange a pre-installation inspection for custom chandeliers after the rough metal parts are completed, ensuring that all parts are compliant with the required size, structure, and shape.
Inspection of finished hotel chandeliers
After assembling all parts of the custom chandeliers according to the design shop drawings and samples, you should examine the custom lighting fixtures strictly, ensuring that the overall design and lighting performance are in good condition.

Design the structure for installation

Better to install on the concrete ceiling directly
It’d be better to keep the force-bearing point of the large chandelier firmly fixed on the concrete ceiling.
The cement-made ceiling shall bear the weight of the custom chandelier in case of falling from the height, making sure that people are safe standing under the hospitality lighting.
In case installing on false ceiling
