Getting Your Customized Lighting Just Right

At Cordero Lighting, crafting the perfect lighting fixture is an art form.

Our Customizable Globe Chandelier has taken center stage in the homes and minds of our clients, and we’re here to help you every step of your lighting journey. Let’s illuminate your space together and create your perfect customized lighting!

Step 1

Decide on the Location 

Location, location, location. Okay…maybe saying it three times is overkill, but so much of your globe chandelier specs are best identified based on where you plan to install it. Is it in a dining room, foyer, stairwell, etc?  Take a look at where other Cordero Lighting customers displayed their globe chandeliers. Once you have a good sense of your ideal location, jump to step 2 to get your customized lighting drop lengths just right.

Step 2

Measure Your Lengths

How to determine the proper drop lengths is the number one question we get asked here at Cordero Lighting. We only require two measurements for our team to work their “chandy” magic.  We want your lowest AND highest desired drop lengths.  

The first drop length will be the lowest length, and this should be measured from the ceiling to the bottom of the globe.  Your last length requirement will be your highest globe length. Once again you will measure this from the ceiling to the bottom of the globe. 

For example, for a foyer we recommend your lowest globe to be around 9-10 feet from the ground. Subtract this from your ceiling height* and you will have your first required drop length.  For the highest length in a foyer, we recommend a drop length of 2’5″ – 3’. 

Keep in mind that each home is unique and elements such as oversized doors, windows above a door frame, stair landings, etc should be factored into your desired chandelier lengths. 

But How Do I Know My Ceiling Height?

Not exactly sure how high your ceilings are because your tape measure isn’t long enough or keeps flopping over? We recommend this easy-to-use laser measuring tool to help determining your drop lengths.

Step 3

Chose Your Globe Amount & Globe Style

Globe Amount:  Choose your desired number of glass globes in order to display the perfect amount of eye-chandelier candy (disclaimer: not made from real candy). Our standard fixture display showcases 8 globes.

Globe Style:  the type of glass you select can make a significant impact on the overall aesthetic.  While clear glass has long been a classic voice, the trend of textured glass for lighting fixtures is on the rise.  Each style of glass comes with its own benefits:

– Seeded Glass has the ability to hid dust better than clear. 

– Dimple Glass cascades and reflects light beautifully. 

– Satin Glass removes the glaring glare of the light bulb.

Glass Globe Sizes

Two 12″ Globes, Three 10″ Globes, and Three 8″ Globes is our recommended balanced mixture of sizes to display based on our 8 Globe Chandelier.

Step 4

Select your Finishes 

It may be the last step, but selecting your final finishes are the most essential to make sure your new custom globe chandelier best complements your home’s color palette. We offer various finishes in wood stain, socket hardware, cordage as well as lightbulb styles.
