If you find a chandelier you like and you also need other light fixtures, check to see if it’s part of a collection. Lighting collections offer fixtures in the same style and finish for many areas of the home.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for step-by-step directions, warnings, and safety and caution information. If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
Don’t forget light bulbs. Color temperature, lumens and wattage all play a part in your room’s quality of light. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and compact fluorescents (CFLs) help lower energy costs. Both have a lower wattage but provide the same light output as higher-wattage incandescent bulbs. LEDs are also cool to the touch. In general, look for a warm, white color temperature for living rooms and bedrooms, a bright white color temperature for kitchens and workspaces, and a daylight color temperature for reading nooks and studies.
