Whilst much emphasis is placed on the purchase of the chandelier, you can use some tips to make sure that you get the installation correctly. Double check the weight of the chandelier you've decided on. When it's extremely near the weight of this light fixture now hanging in the area, you won't have to substitute the ceiling box. 

When it is thicker than the present fixture, but you'll have to put money into a junction box that'll have the ability to support its own weight. Disconnect the electricity running into the present lighting fixture in the circuit box. Use a circuit tester to ensure the electricity supply was switched off; you do not need to risk electrocuting yourself, after all. Eliminate the old light fixture. 

Whilst doing so, you need to make note of the way it had been set up. Use electrical tape to indicate the cables and in which they have been attached. Attach the components to your brand-new chandelier into the mounting strap at the ceiling. This will make sure your installation is done properly and your chandelier stays secured to your ceiling for several years to come.
