Ceiling Light / April 27, 2018 / Stacie Soto
Installing your new lights. Your new ceiling light fixture will have come with a mounting bracket. This will look like a solid piece of metal with screw holes and is likely to be shaped like a plate or a strip. The mounting bracket needs to be securely mounted to the electrical box in the ceiling with the wires hanging down around the bracket. Make sure that you attach the ground wire to the grounding screw on the mounting bracket. The next step is positioning your new ceiling lights so that you can connect the wires from the fixture to the ones coming out of the ceiling. Once all the wires are connected you need to carefully lift your new fixture up to the ceiling, pushing the wires up with it, and then line up the screw holes with the ones in the mounting bracket. Tightly secure your lights to the ceiling with the correct screws or bolts - this may take two people depending on the size of your fixture.
Multi-pendant ceiling lights offer a similar effect yet come affixed with multiple bulbs, and are often styled in unique and stunning ways. Multi-pendant ceiling lights offer an alternative to mini chandeliers. When considering a chandelier for your home, check out multi-pendant ceiling lights as well. Multi-pendant ceiling lights are useful for above the dining room table to create a more intimate dining experience for you, your family, and your guests. Up light pendants and down light pendants offer a slightly larger version of the mini pendant ceiling light. They have a more full lighting effect from just one bulb. Pendant up lights shine their light upward, to bounce light off walls for a full lighting effect, while pendant down lights have that spotlighting effect found in pendant ceiling lighting styles.
