Pendant Lights / December 17, 2017 / Ruth Stark
Installing dimmers is easy and you can do it yourself without having to call in an electrician if you're simply replacing an existing light. You want to start by shutting off the power to the room on the circuit box. Ideally, you want to use a circuit tester to make sure the power is off to the light before touching the wiring. Assuming the power is off, start by removing the old fixture. If you're replacing a ceiling fan with a pendant, remove the blades first. It makes the process much easier.
Floor lamps and table lamps often add a dramatic flair when used with a Tiffany lampshade. The pendant, on the other hand, is designed to be slim and sleek and putting a Tiffany fixture on the end of one defeats the purpose, in my opinion, because you are really mismatching functional styles. I suggest that you stay with the more traditional style of pendant lighting such as something called the Colonial. This impressive fixture features a shade that gives one the appearance of a lantern with a candle inside.
