To avoid severe shadows it is best to steer clear of reflectors. Bathroom fixtures can also be used inside cabinets or on the ceiling over bathtubs or bath enclosures. The right lighting fixture is essential achieving the desired light effect and avoiding a glare or shadow. There are various kinds of bathroom lighting fixtures. Bar lights house tiny trochees mounted on metal bars, of various designs and shape. These bars are fixed to the walls or counters. They provide for either up lighting (to allow light to gush down on mirror cabinets) or down lighting (to bounce light off the ceiling).
Pendant lighting has lately become of fashion. With each passing day, more and more designs and models of pendant light designs enter the market. The competition is more than ever, and the consumers today have options to select their pendants like never before. Pendants make home lighting look beautiful. And with the right pendant light fixture, the whole look goes up by another notch. If you think deeply, you would realize that the fundamental value of pendant lights lies in using the right fixture. Right fixtures not only improve the looks of the pendant lighting, but also make such lighting a practical option. In fact, it is the right fixture that can make pendant lighting an option better than ceiling lighting.
The term home lighting covers quite a large section, if you think about all the different types of lighting within your home this is a massive range of lights. Usually you have different lights in different rooms and more than one form of lighting in each room as well, for example you would have different light fixtures in your bathroom than you would in your bedroom, and in most rooms you have a main light fitting, maybe a few wall lights, and one or two lamps. Why do you need so many different types of lighting within one room? Generally speaking it is not so you can put all the lights on all at the same time to create as much light as you possibly can, and if you pay the electricity bill then you probably make sure that this does not in fact happen! Having more than one type of lighting in a room is to give a variance of lighting that the lights can create. For example in the dinning room you can use the main light fitting for when you are doing an activity that requires a lot of light such as working on a project or for the kids when they do their home work, but if you are entertaining guests or having a dinner party then a softer tone of lighting is better suited and so you can turn off the main light and turn on the wall lights or simply the lamps if they aren’t too dark, and you have a softer more friendlier lighting atmosphere.
Please note that pendants hang physically and tend to occupy a larger diameter compared to the ceiling lights. So even if you have a ceiling light along the perimeter of your kitchen, installing the pendants using the same mount fixtures may not be easy. Hence if you desire such installation, getting professional help is suggested.
Up above your head, in your ceiling you should have three wires ready to be reconnected. Also you should have a new fixture hanger device in with your new package. If your old light already had one, great, it is already installed. If not you will have to put the new one in. It looks like a pivot with screws on both ends. These allow for adjustment of your new fixture. Install this hanger using two screws provided or use your old ones. Once you have the pivot installed it should have two screws dropping down for you to connect your new base. Next it’s time to connect the green wire. Your fixture probably has a bare copper wire available for the grounding. Then connect the white to the white. You can use the old nuts, or the new wire nuts if you prefer. Then connect the black or red wire. Now make sure your connections are tight. Tug on the wires, trying to pull them out of the wirenut. This will assure a solid connection. If it pulls out, reconnect it and pull again. Strike three is better than a house fire, so reconnect it again and try to make it very tight. Once its wired, you can mount the base to the ceiling now. This can be very tricky and even frustrating. Be patient and get the screws through the insulation and twist the base to lock the screws in place, then gently tighten them just enough to hold the fixture snug to your ceiling.
