Crystal chandeliers for hotel halls: 4 guidelines for the correct choice
1. Observe the space to be illuminated carefully
Before making any choice, you must be clear about the result to be obtained. The chandelier is used to give light and an elegant touch of magic and luxury, so consider the application space.
valuate the presence of other light sources in the room, if the crystal chandelier will be the main source and then calculate in detail the intensity of light that can be used based on the space.
Consider that the lights can also be installed with a wiring system that allows some or all of the lights to be switched on at will: this could allow you to have different intensities depending on the various times of the day.
2. Calculate the size of the chandelier
It is essential to know the measurements of the chandelier right away.
The selected model must be of sufficient height to allow an optimal effect. Furthermore, the chandelier should never go below the minimum height of 200 cm from the ground.
To determine the diameter of the chandelier:
- Calculate the dimensions of the hall in meters (length and width)
- Add the two measurements in meters and multiply the total by 8.5
In this way you will get as a result the ideal diameter in cm that your chandelier should have.
To determine the height of the chandelier excluding the chain: measure the height of the ceiling.
The height of the chandelier should be 25 cm for each meter of height. For example, if the height of the hall is 4 meters, you can estimate that the height of the chandelier is 1 meter.
3. Choose the style and shape of the chandelier
The choice of the style of the chandelier is very subjective, and varies a lot according to the tastes and stylistic needs of your client.
The classic can marry the modern and vice versa, so some classic models have been revised in a more contemporary style with more stylized lines and designs, but without altering the characteristics of the object.
Generally, you can choose between two main chandelier shapes:
- Model with various stages that can be developed on 2, 3 or 4 axes, depending on the shape and size
- Single-axis models where the stages develop one on top of the other in a symmetrical manner
The choice is to be made based on the tastes of the customer, the homogeneity with the rest of the environment and, of course, your experience in this regard.
4. Look carefully at the details and finishes of the materials
It is important to pay attention to the craftsmanship and materials used to create the structure of a chandelier. The crystal can be embellished with the addition of 24-karat gold finishes, in the details or throughout the work, to give greater luster and value to the chandelier.
Even the electrical system of the chandelier is an aspect not to be overlooked and is as important as its aesthetic beauty, if not more.

The entrance to the accommodation is the point of contact between the hotel and the guests, which determines the first impression of the entire hotel. For this reason, it is essential to have an elegant and suggestive chandelier in the hall, to make the hotel memorable.
When choosing your hotel lobby chandelier, you need to make sure you choose one that is versatile and lends itself well to the space, giving guests a captivating view while working on their laptops, watching TV, or waiting for transportation.
The large voluminous chandeliers are the best for hotel lobbies, as they give a unique tone to the space and can also be accompanied by other lighting sources, perhaps direct light to offer functional accents to some specific areas.
Marchetti Illuminazione offers you 5 of its crystal chandeliers perfect for lighting the hotel lobby.
1. Canopus: rings of radiant light
Canopus is a chandelier made up of forged steel rings with different dimensions that can be made to measure, like a high fashion tailored suit.
The designer’s imagination can count on the dimensions and on water crystal crystals of unparalleled beauty which, illuminated by the indirect light of the LED, take on a unique light and effect.
The water crystals are born from the experimentation of the Marchetti Lab: a chemical process imprisons the water in the crystal which, blown with nitrogen, crystallizes it, creating wonderful effects.
The finishes of this model are many: gold leaf, silver leaf or copper leaf, all handmade. Brushed satin galvanic gold finishes are also available.
2. Calypso: a real jewel of light
Calipso is a chandelier characterized by rings of various sizes, which are illuminated internally through the purity of the crystal set in steel bands.
The structure reflects a fascinating and polychrome light, due to the crystals that are set next to each other and the mirrored steel that increases the reflection.
