Unless you’re particularly savvy with electrical work leave electrical projects to professionals unless you’re just swapping out a fixture. In terms of efficiency install LED lights. They use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting (and won’t heat up the room).
A border of tile lets you add your personal style without breaking your budget.
