Crystal remains a popular choice for lighting fixtures and is used across the style spectrum. In this contemporary bathroom the crystal chandelier has a modern presentation drawing attention to the underlit wave ceiling.
Bright ideas for current lighting styles: Consider replacing your ceiling fans with eye-catching chandeliers. Keep the overhead light at 150 to 300 watts for optimum illumination.
