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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
