Ceiling Light / December 19, 2017 / Ebony Morrison
Changing your ceiling lights is a great way to improve the look and feel of your space and you have more options than ever before in terms of selection and price. Most projects will only take a little bit of your time, even if you're a DIY novice, and they really do make a big impact on the level of comfort people will experience in your home. Changing out an old ceiling light to a new one is easy and only takes seconds. Underneath the cover, at the base of the lamp will be a couple of screws that hold it to the ceiling. After turning off power to the room, unscrew the unit and detach the wires from it. Once you do this, you can simply reattach the new ceiling light, restore the power and enjoy a whole new effect in the room. It really is that simple for most installations, so the only thing to seriously consider is the look you want your light to give off.
Testing. Once you've finished connecting your new ceiling lights, simply turn the electricity back on and flip the switch. If your room lights up then you've done it correctly. If not, then you will have to switch the electricity back off and check your connections. It is a good idea to check and see if other electrical items in the room are working as you may have blown a fuse - this simple test could save you hours of trying to find a problem with the wires.
