Chandeliers are decorative fixtures, meant to impart style and ambiance, so do not expect your chandelier to be a room’s primary light source. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make with a chandelier. Placing a single fixture in the center of a room and expecting it to entirely light that room is a recipe for bad lighting. This is compounded if the chandelier’s bulbs are exposed, something common to many chandeliers.
Keep in mind that if your chandelier bulbs are exposed, there are LEDs and CFL bulbs that may work but also may look horrible. If you want to retrofit with a CFL or LED, buy just one bulb to see if you like it. Then replace the rest if you do.
Upgrading your chandelier to use LED or CFL is called retrofitting, and it is often, but not always, possible. It depends on the fixture. There are many LED and CFL retrofit bulbs available in a variety of shapes and bases that you can buy to retrofit, but you need to keep dimming in mind. If your chandelier is wired to a dimmer, you will probably need to buy a new dimmer that is compatible with your CFL or LED bulbs. Remember that a dimmer dims the bulbs, not the fixture.
If you wish to remain simple but classic & stylish at the same time, you can settle for this kind of chandelier. It is small in size which makes it very suitable for the small rooms. If therefore you have a smaller region in the house that you wish to decorate using some modern lighting, this chandelier will be a good piece to pay attention to.
