I am trying to buy satin nickel themed lighting fixtures.

Customer Question

I am trying to buy satin nickel themed lighting fixtures.
What's the best source of lighting fixtures, such as, recessed lights, sconces, fans, etc. Lights in LED preferred.
Also, do LEDs make humming sound? If yes, then what does the noise depend on? Would 4000K color temp be noisier than 3000K or 2700K

The best source is your local lighting showroom. There is usually at least one in medium sized cities & several in larger areas. Many times these showrooms are adjacent to and associated with electrical distributors but there are many independent showrooms as well. A showroom is a good starting place even if you don't purchase from them because you can actually see what you have in mind.

LED fixtures are electronic devices and should not make any sound no matter what size. They should operate silently.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you Ken

What do you mean by lighting showroom? How would you find one, say, in Tulsa, OK?

Do Lowe's and HD count?

The showrooms I am talking about will usually dwarf those big box stores. I did a Google search for "lighting showroom" in Tulsa & got several hits - Garbe's, Andrews Lighting Gallery, Lifestyles, & Oklahoma Lighting Distributors to name a few. There are others there also.

Just checking to see if you have had any success finding your fixtures, have you? Another option besides finding what you want then searching online for prices is to take the model to Lowe's Lighting Department. They can special order almost anything that is available at a lighting showroom.
