Compared to other modern chandelier pieces that require extensive cleaning needs, chandelier fixtures with crystal accents are very easy to clean and maintain. Their cleaning requirements could be attended using the most conventional cleaning agents found at your home, and you just have to periodically dust them to avoid dirt build up. Chipped off crystal stones could be easily replaced as DIY shops as well as the store where you bought your chandelier offer crystal replacements. Electricity wise, crystal light fixtures are cost and energy efficient even with lower wattage because they could reflect and scatter light effectively and they make use of few light bulbs, thereby saving you money for your energy consumption.
Design Tips A chandelier can never be your only light source. You will need to plan for other layers of lighting. First, make sure that you get a dimmer installed for the chandelier. This is usually standard, but make sure that it happens. You will want at the minimum, a floor lamp. Choose one that will blend with the room. Find a neutral color for the shade and a mat finish for the metal. The floor lamp is the handmaiden for the chandelier -- it cannot overpower it. Depending on your budget, you may opt for two or three sconces. Chandeliers and sconces are a perfect lighting pair.
The actual cleaning can go a couple of different ways. You can get a soft cloth, one that is not full of rough bits, and then apply the WD40 to it. You can even soak the cloth in this solution to get it nice and wet. Wring it out if you do this though because you don't want a greasy mess all over the space under the chandelier. Another way to go is to apply the WD40 straight to the metal. This works just as good but it can also be rather messy. If you have a good dining room table under the chandelier or if you have marble or granite flooring don't go this route as you could end up staining your floors and table.
