I have a super handy relative and a tall boyfriend who have installed light fixtures in our home before and were able to get this installed without professional help. However, it took several hours. The directions that come with the chandelier are really terrible. If you haven't installed light fixtures before/know what you are doing, I definitely do recommend hiring a professional. The quality is good. It doesn't look like it cost thousands and thousands of dollars, but it definitely has a beautiful shine to it and dresses up my dining room significantly. The packaging smelled awful though. Very strong chemical factory smell. Not a deal breaker though.... This would be great in a bedroom too, I'm considering buying another already! The crystals are pretty (can't wait till tomorrow so I can see them in the sunlight!) and the shade is actually made of tons of tiny strings (so unique!), so the shadow is really quite lovely. For the price, this is amazing. So much better than what you find at home improvement stores like Lowes and Home Depot for less! Will be purchasing more light fixtures in the near future from o.co!
