People invest a good amount of money in buying and installing lighting fixtures within their homes. Yet to provide sufficient illumination to rooms, considerable attention needs to be paid to the light bulb which is being installed within the room. If you are going to install lighting fixtures in your home within a few days, then you will need to have a good understanding of basics of light bulbs. First, match the wattage amount of the light bulb with light fixture.
All light bulbs come with a specific wattage, which usually ranges between 40-120 watts. Similarly all light fixtures come with a maximum wattage amount. So, you will need to choose a light bulb with a wattage amount which is lower or equal to the maximum wattage of the lighting fixture. This is because a light bulb with wattage over the maximum capacity a lighting fixture can handle can cause the outbreak of fire.
The next thing that you will need to take into consideration is the amount of light the bulb will emit. It is measured in lumens. The greater the number of lumens, the brighter will be the light emitted by the bulb. So, if you are planning to use a light bulb for illuminating a big room, you need to go for one which comes with at least 1000 lumens.
Next, you will need to pay attention to the durability of the light bulb. The life span of each bulb tends to vary. If you are going to install the bulb in a lighting fixture, go for the one that has a greater durability as compared to the one that is used in a table lamp.
LED bulbs have the longest durability among all light bulbs you would come across. Usually, they come with a warranty period of 15,000 hours. Also take into account the energy costs associated with the light bulb. Traditional light bulbs are not known to be energy efficient. Therefore, you will need to go for the ones that come with a low lifetime cost. Though you may have to pay a higher price while buying such a bulb, you will derive benefits of choosing in the long run.

Chandelier installation involves both electronic and structural connections. So, you need the help of an expert for assembling and installing your fixture. The ones that are heavy should be installed on high ceilings. Prior to placement, you will need to check if the area of installation requires some structural upgrade or not. A contractor with adequate skills and equipment will be able to ensure a safe and perfect installation.
The size of the chandelier is another aspect that you will need to take into consideration. You can consult the contractor to select a fixture that will provide sufficient amount of light for your room. The normal time taken for installing a chandelier is a few hours. However, the setup time depends on the accessibility of the installation site and assembly related needs. Adequate attention will also need to be paid to the mounting structure and condition of wiring. Complete installation may take an entire day.
