How To Order


At Hacienda Lights and Iron, each design is custom made at the time it is ordered for that specific client. We do not keep stock.

On account of this, when an order is placed and payment has been processed, it cannot be canceled.

Please let us know if you require any assistance with dimensions or color finishes before placing an order.

We are always happy to help our clients create timeless custom designs.

How Our Designs Are Measured

Each design is measured from the widest point to the highest point of the design’s iron portion.

Because our products are handmade, slight variations may exist from the dimensions listed.

Designs like those of wall sconces, where the highest point is sometimes the candle, 4 inches should be added to know the total height. For example, if a wall sconce dimensions are specified on the website catalog as 10″w x 24″h, you would add 4″ for the candle to the height. The overall dimensions would be 10″w x 28″.

Chandelier and pendant dimensions do not include chain the 3 feet of chain in the specified size. Only the body of the chandelier or pendant are included in the size.

If a chandeliers specifies 36″w x 48″h, the height would be just for the body of the chandelier. Chain is not included in the height.

The same applies to Pendant lights. Dimensions specified are just for the body of the pendant. No chain is included in the dimension.


All hanging fixtures, like chandeliers and pendants, include up to 3 feet of hand-forged chain.

Extra chain is available for order at $18.00 per linear foot.

If your design hangs from to chains  and you order extra feet of chain, cost will be per linear feet and per chain.

Please specify the length of chain needed to hang your fixture at the time of ordering since electrical wire needs to be included and match the length of the chain.

Selecting Light Bulbs & Candle Covers

Light Bulbs

Most of our designs use Candelabra base light bulbs. 

Only designs that specify different  would require another type of light bulb.

Hacienda Lights and Iron does not provide light bulbs with the orders. 




-Wall sconces or any designs that are installed closer to eye level … 25w – 40w.

-Exterior lanterns … 25w – 40w.

-Pendants designs with up to 4 lights … 25w – 40w.

-Chandeliers up to 12 lights … 25w – 40w.

-Chandeliers with 14 to 24 lights … 25w most installations.  



To choose the right wattage for your light bulbs, it’s important to consider the different criteria of the light fixture’s location. This includes the ceiling height, room size, dimmers, natural light and other light sources, as well as the function of that specific area.


If using 60w light bulbs it is advisable to have a dimmer switch in that installation so that you are able to create an inviting atmosphere instead of an uncomfortable bright area.


We highly recommend to consult with your electrician, builder or designer with any specific questions regarding your project since every installation is different and they have the best knowledge of your specific needs.



All of our designs are held to the highest standards of quality and using UL electrical component  and are label UL CERTIFIED.

Candle Covers

All of our designs come with #01 antique glazed candle covers included in the price

We offer multiple other candle cover options at an additional cost. The options include wide, extra wide or regular resin candle covers in gold or ivory colors.

Light bulbs up to 60w can be used.

Exterior Lights

When purchasing your exterior lights, it is always good to remember that your selection should mirror the level of quality and scale of your project. Whether residential or commercial, lighting is the finishing touch to any façade, illuminating the surroundings, while bringing depth and richness to the environment.


Variations of the same style for different areas of you project can be used. We recommend specifying the largest lantern design for the main entrance, combining the same design in a smaller version through the rest of the project. A different  option we offer is to use half flush wall lantern,  this designs use half of the lantern body flush against the wall.


This is an excellent option for smaller areas and will lower your overall costs while still maintaining the same design throughout.


Many of our clients choose one of our designs and create a full collection for their project, including post lights, half flush lanterns and pendants.


We offer two types of glass. Clear seeded glass that gives an aged look with small air bubbles trapped inside and clear glass if you prefer a more contemporary look. 


Although all of our electrical sockets can use light bulbs up to 60w, we recommend using 25w-40w light bulbs on your exterior designs. Most of our lanterns use candelabra base light bulbs. Designs that use standard base E26 (Edison) will be specified.


Let us know how we can design your unique exterior lighting collection based on the sizes and styles you need.


Our prices for exterior lights include a powder coat base plus a choice of one of our 12 hand applied finishes as a second coat of color  giving your exterior lanterns an old world look.


We take great pride in the quality of our finishes. We recommend that each piece receive proper maintenance so you can enjoy your fixture for a long time.


If your project installation is near the Ocean or there are harsh weather conditions (example snow and tropical humidity), we highly recommend to have your designs metalized instead of powder coated.


If you decide to metalize you exterior designs, please let us know so that we may quote you the cost and extra time needed for this process.


Since our products are made of iron and subject to rust, maintenance and location as well as the appropriate base will extend the life of the design.


Applying clear wax polish to the metal part of an exterior design that has been throughly clean will help protect it against rust and extend the integrity of the color finish.

Chandeliers create a visual impact in any room and have a powerful effect on the design of a room.

We suggest some guidelines to follow when selecting your chandelier:

-Remember that scale is very important. A chandelier should complement, not overpower.

-The bottom of your design should not be lower than 90” from the floor.

When hanging a chandelier over your dining room table, the width of your design should be 12” narrower than the table and have a clearance of 30”-36” from the bottom of your chandelier to the top of your table. If you have a table that is very long, you have an option of selecting two smaller chandeliers or pendants instead of a single large chandelier.

To create an inviting atmosphere, it is better to use multiple light sources in each room. Consider using a combination of a chandelier or pendants and wall sconces from our catalog to achieve an overall harmonious combination of finishes and designs that complement one another and create a unique and timeless room.

All chandelier designs use Candelabra base light bulbs. Light bulbs are not included.

Chandeliers and Pendants

Wall Sconces

Wall sconces lend ambient light to a room with a soft background glow that complements chandeliers and recessed lighting.

Wall sconces should be located between 60”-65” above the floor. There are many variables that can change the placement. One such example are rooms with high ceilings that make the placement of the fixture higher to highlight the scale of the room. The one consistency is determining the correct location to allow the majority of the people in the space to enjoy the wall sconce from their normal positions, without suffering from the glare of an exposed bulb.

When choosing the finish, style and scale of your sconces, it is always best to take into account the design and finish of the primary source of light in the room

When selecting your light bulbs, 25w-40w is recommended for sconces. We recommend this as their placement is closer to eye level and having a very bright light bulb would be uncomfortable for those around.

All of our wall sconces use Candelabra base light bulbs up to 60w. Light bulbs not included.
