In most cases, white goes to white, black to black and ground to ground, but every house, especially older ones, can be a bit different. The ground wire connects to the ground screw on the bracket. Before you slide the new mini pendant lights onto the mounting bracket, add new wire caps to the connections. Thats really all there is to it. If you are adding new junction boxes where none existed before and havent done that before, you may want to call in a trusted friend or a professional electrician to help you as youll need to figure out the wiring in your home and how to run the wires to the location of the new fixture.
Depending on the size of the kitchen, a row of two or three pendant lights will look perfect. With the wonderful variety of colors, shapes and lamp shades to choose from, you can find a set of pendants that will compliment your kitchen decor. They are particularly apt in kitchens with an island work space. The pendants drop over the island and it just pulls the room together. If you have a high ceiling, pendants can be a welcome design element in the dining room. I recently saw the coolest light fixture it was a row of three colored bottles.
It is very decorative and can highlight a special place or furnishing in the area. Pendant glow can be used to liven up the place by using it to illuminate paintings or special flower vases, or particular furniture like a sofa. Although pendant lighting appears classy, chic and expensive, homeowners need not spend too much to decorate and illuminate their residences with these elegant looking pendant lights, since it is relatively easy to make and create. All that is needed are light bulbs (incandescent or fluorescent), electrical sockets, electrical wires, frames, chain or wire or fishing line (to support the electrical wires where the light will be hanging), old lamp shade frame or lamp globes (which will give the pendant light its character and design).
Glass pendant lights cast off more light than a fabric shaded counterpart. The light can be further altered by the color of the glass used in the fixture. Some glass lights come with opaque or transparent shades that will control the direction of the light. But others are clear, allowing the light to shine through, increasing the beauty and effectiveness of the lights. One of the best things about glass pendants is that they can be artistic as well as functional. If youre a fan of Dale Chihuly, you can get fiery colored lamps or lamps that look like flowers or other sculptural shapes that will work wonderfully in an entryway or in a stairwell.
Pendant lights are a hot light fixture these days. It seems like everywhere you look in magazines or on home improvement shows, they are using pendant lights. It is no wonder, really. These are terrific light fixtures. The variety of shapes, styles and prices will suit just about everyone looking for lighting replacements. As with anything that is currently popular, it is easy to overdo, think of the design excesses of the 1970s as an example. With a few simple principles under your belt, you will be able to add pendant lighting to your home like a pro.
