Kitchen chandeliers are both trendy and classy. But how do you deal with the glare from bare bulbs? Here's how to give your kitchen a warm glow.
1. Perhaps the least expensive fix is to replace all of the clear bulbs with frosted ones that soften the light. Use bulbs of the same wattage so there isn't any light lost, just glare.
2. Lower the wattage of the bulbs.
3. Another idea is to add a dimmer. This takes place at the switch for the light and is the best idea to cut glare when used with frosted bulbs.
4. Add miniature shades to a chandelier to reduce the glare and dress it up a bit. The featured shade's surface is made of a light-colored fabric so it softens and spreads the light out into the room, making it easier on the eyes.
