The only place I haven't changed to LEDs are in my candelabra base lamps. I haven't found a decent candelabra base LED bulb yet, in either brightness or in appearance (some are exposed). I even changed out the G8 bulbs in my rangehood to LED. No regrets.

I guess by "pigtail" you mean compact fluorescent? Never was a fan so never bothered.

In my profile (if I understand this correctly, but I may not) you can see some of the fixtures we were/are considering for our kitchen. A few I think will be too busy for how the kitchen is painted (or not!), but I may consider them for other rooms.

I cannot understand why so many of the photographs in this article are taken with strong sunlight coming in the windows and making it quite difficult to see the effect of the lamps in question.
