Some of the lighting fixtures that were used by the kings rich traders and noblemen have been passed down through generations as antiques. Antique lighting fixtures are invaluable pieces of craftsmanship. They are not only the evidence of excellent craftsmanship but also witnesses of history and the rich culture of the past. They speak volumes for the owner?s taste and choice. When purchasing an antique lighting fixture it is important to check whether the piece is genuine. The years and the hands it has passed through add value to it.
In case there has never been a previously installed lighting fixture and the breaker for the fixture has not been indicated on the new breaker box one needs to determine the circuit that will power the lighting. In order to do this one needs to have somebody else turn the power switches off and on while testing the exposed wiring where the new fixture will be fitted each wire at a time using a voltage tester. Once the circuit that will power the new fixture is determined the beaker should be marked and then turned off.
Having done all of the above the base or brace of the new lighting fixture can be fastened to the ceiling studs using a screwdriver or a drill. Ensure that the like-wires are properly connected to one another and complete these connections by fastening the wire nuts. The new assembly can then be mounted on the base or brace using the available hardware.
The installation of kitchen lighting fixtures is an easy do-it-yourself task as long as you are using existing wiring and have some experience with electricity. If you are confident that you can do the job yourself all one has to do is follow these simple instructions. The first step in installing your fixture(s) is to determine the type of installation that is required. In this regard focus is laid on the location as well as the type of lighting fixture which greatly determine the varied installation directions. For under cabinet units all one is required to do is locate the available electrical socket and then plug in the lighting fixture. However other light fixtures such as ceiling fixtures are wired directly to the electric control panel which has its own circuit. In this case our focus is on installing a new kitchen ceiling fixture.
