Brighten Up Your Home with Track Lighting

Track lighting provides extra lighting to any room of the house. It’s versatile enough to be used as ambient light in the dinning room, yet functional enough to provide task lighting for a workshop or garage. Whether it’s updating an older room or just redirecting a new source of light, track lighting is an easy way to brighten up your home or office. Here are some popular examples and instructions for this type of lighting.

  1. Ceiling track lighting is the most common and efficient way to add secondary illumination to larger rooms of the house. It brightens up the dining or living room. The function is to spotlight a stucco wall or some type of art deco. This type of lighting works great in rooms with high ceilings.
  2. Kitchen track lighting under the cabinets is a no-brainer. Not only does it add another interesting element to the room, it’s also very functional. But make sure to complement the track lighting with some gap or recessed lighting. Having enough light to read recipes, take accurate measurements, and complete basic tasks is essential in the kitchen.
  3. Installation of track lighting is similar to that of a ceiling fan. With all hard wiring systems, you must first shut off the power at the circuit breaker. Then connect the live end of the wire to the track lighting and tighten it. With the wiring stable, drill mounting holes and attach the track to the ceiling. Now join the track wiring to your home wiring, do this according to parallel wire colors. Last but not least, install the track heads onto the lights and then switch the power back on.
