277 volt hideous light fixtures.

O.k so this post is not about my home, but about my office.
I am almost done remodeling my showroom, but I have an issue.

In my boys and girls room I have florescent light fixtures that look absolutely horrible. I want put in some nice light fixtures. Incandescent, led, or anything but flourescent.

The current fixtures are powered by the building's 277 volt system.

What are my options?

277 volt hideous light fixtures.

277V is standard for office buildings. Most manufacturers of lights offer 120V or 277V equivalent fixtures, including fluorescent, LED, compact fluorescent, and halogen. so you select the fixture type you want, go to a lighting store (not a big box store), and you should have little problem finding your selected fixture type in 277V.
