Finally, a hanging kit that can be used to transform your table lamp or floor lamp shades into dramatic hanging lamps! This kit features two lighting sockets, a stem and a hanging chain. An ideal way to keep that majestic Tiffany-style glow in your home as your decorating needs change.
Please Note: Before starting the installation, disconnect the power by turning off the circuit breaker or by removing the fuse at the fuse box. Turning the power off using the light switch is not sufficient to prevent electrical shock. The recommended lamp shade diameter is 14"-18".
A good lighting scheme is arguably the most important aspect of decorating and the most powerful way to define a room’s ambiance. Choosing the right types of lighting requires knowing a little something about the different purposes lighting can serve, the types of lamps and shades available, what some technical terms mean, and how to tailor a lighting scheme to your specific room and needs.
Like all large ceiling fixtures, chandeliers provide excellent general room illumination. Most chandeliers use a number of low wattage bulbs (40-60 watts is common) that should all be installed, and occasionally replaced, at the same time. A total bulb wattage of 200-400 will provide ample light for most dining rooms. When installing a chandelier in the dining room, the bottom should be about three feet above the table to allow for headroom. Center the chandelier over the table, not in the center of the room. The overall diameter should be a little less than that of the table. If you have a high enough ceiling, a chandelier also makes an excellent ambient light source for other rooms in your home. Foyers, living rooms and wide staircases are all ideal locations for a beautiful chandelier.
Types of lighting: Lighting falls into three categories: ambient, task and accent lighting. Well-lit rooms feature a combination of the three, allowing you to be comfortable without squinting or straining your eyes. The number and types of fixtures will vary with your room sizes, décor and personal preferences.
You have the perfect lamp and you've carefully chosen a shade for it, but what kind of light bulb should you choose? You may not think much about light bulbs, but the kind you choose has the greatest impact on the overall effect and effectiveness of your lamp. Many people make the mistake of buying a light bulb more powerful than they need for a particular lamp. This unfortunately can make a lamp so intense or distracting that it is rarely used. The simple solution to this problem is to use a smaller bulb. Most table and accent lamps require no more than a 60-watt bulb, even if they are rated for something much higher. While it's very important to never exceed the recommended bulb wattage for a lamp, there is nothing wrong with using a less-powerful bulb.
Aside from wattage, there are other factors to consider when choosing a light bulb. Light bulbs come in four basic types: incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and halogen.
