Flushmount light on vaulted ceilings
I'm not sure who thought this was a good idea.. I have 12.5 foot ceilings throughout my house. In my kitchen I have a chandelier over a "dinette" area and a flushmount on the highest area. I have a can light over the sink as well. I have tried to open the flushmount to change the bulbs to CFL, however while at the top of my ladder I can barely reach this let alone open it safely.
I want to replace it but I'm not sure what would look good here. I would like to be able to change the bulbs either from my 8' ladder or with a pole. I do have the same light in 2 more areas of my house, however these are at 8.5 feet so they'll be much safer to change.
Also, I will be hiring an electrician to be doing this as I'm too scared to try and attempt anything like that on my own. What is a fair price to do this type of fixture change out?
