ugly light fixtures: before + after

Most of the overhead lighting that comes with apartments are generally hideous which is why I switch them out whenever possible, usually with some kind of pendant.

I like paper lanterns from Pearl River Mart. They make the largest impact while spending the least amount of money. Get a cord kit that an electrician can cut for a hardwire connection.
The last shot shows you can reposition the light if your junction mount is in the wrong spot.

  1. I had my installer do it who is not a electrician but knows what he's doing and is very safe (turning off the electric via the breaker box). you could always give a call to a local electrician and see what they would charge for your area. sorry it's not a specific answer but i'm in nyc and they may charge more or less for where you live anyway.hope that helps!
