Ceiling Light / April 27, 2018 / Kerri Patrick.
Extra height protects bathroom ceiling lights from electrical hazards: When you or your family is in the bathroom, you would spend a part of the time taking a shower. The shower water will definitely be focused in the right direction, but as you physically move, droplets of the water would fly around. If you use a pendant light, then that brings the electrical circuit much closer to the level of your head. This would lead to a much higher chance of the droplets of water finding their way inside the pendant lights. Water is a conductor of electricity. Hence the event of water droplets entering pendant would create a risk of short circuits. With the ceiling lights being at a much greater height, chances of such mishaps are practically eliminated.
These lighting fixtures normally draw their inspiration from lighting artists of the late 19th and the early 20th century. These lights typically have an art deco look that makes the fixture more alluring and mesmerizing. Ceiling lights are available in a many varieties such as flush mounted, semi-flush, outdoor hanging pendants and lanterns, and even outdoor chandeliers. Art and Deco varieties such as mission style outdoor ceiling lights are available as close-to-ceiling fixtures as well.
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.
Brightness: The brightness of the lights is an extremely important factor. It should provide enough brightness to your bathroom to get enough light in all the corners of the bathroom. Single or multiple lights: When choosing multiple lights on the ceiling lights you know that it will provide enough brightness, but sometimes too much light is really too much. If you want to do single lights, I will advice you to put a few single lights up in different parts of the bathroom. So you'll need to sit down and think carefully how much light you want to have in your bathroom.
