We have it in some other spot in the kitchen now, but that will be for another blog post.
🙂 Here’s a picture I snapped this morning just before I installed the pendant light conversion kit, which I purchased yesterday at Lowes.
I now understand why electricians charge those fees.
There are obstacles along the way that with their experience, they can easily foreseen, fixing things way faster than we as diy'ers can.
The chose the bronze finish pendant kit and the shade to match.In this video, electrician Charles Vargas upgrades some ceiling lights. Turn off the electricity to the circuit you'll be working on. Mark the locations for the recessed lights on the ceiling.Choose locations that fall between joists and away from other obstructions. Drill a hole through the drywall ceiling at each light location using a drill and 6-inch-diameter hole saw. Use fish tape to pull 14/2 nonmetallic electrical cable from light hole to light hole. Attach a cable connector to the electrical box on the light fixture, then insert the cable into the box. Strip the insulation from the end of the electrical cable, then make the wire connections to the light fixture: white wire to white wire, black wire to black wire, and bare copper wire to bare copper wire.That will help you avoid banging your hip on the corner of the island countertop, but it’s very dim light for working in the kitchen. In the book Kitchen & Bath Lighting: Concepts, Design, Light, which the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) released in 2015, the text suggests 50 fc for prep counters.This jibes with the January 2017 update of the Illuminating Engineering Society’s (IES) “Lighting and the Visual Environment for Seniors and the Low Vision Population” (ANSI/IES RP-28-16), which also recommends a minimum of 50 fc at the countertop surface.
