Pendant Lights / April 24, 2018 / Nina Bush
Pendants can be hung in pairs or in a chain-think of matte silver steel overhanging lights that are positioned above the line of a long kitchen island. It can be placed in clusters-you can put together a bunch of lanterns in varying sizes and colours, place them in a corner of a room, and you now have an elegant, luminous, gorgeous bouquet of light. Then again, you can simply hang a single, lone pendant in a strategic area where it can serve as a minimalist and practical lighting solution.
Remove the plastic wire nuts from the wires, disconnect the wires, then remove the mounting bracket. Replace the bracket with the new bracket that came with the light. Once the bracket is installed, it's time to connect the wires. Follow the diagram that came with the light. 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. That's really all there is to it. If you are adding new junction boxes where none existed before and haven't done that before, you may want to call in a trusted friend or a professional electrician to help you as you'll need to figure out the wiring in your home and how to run the wires to the location of the new fixture.
