pendant light fixtureIf you want to upgrade the look of your room, many people consider installing pendant lights. These are perfect over a work surface or bar, and if you already have recessed can lights there, it is really easy and fast. If you can replace a light bulb, you can install the conversion kit. They are widely available online, but there may be some local retailers that stock them.

They conversion kits work the same way, but will have varying mounting hardware. Basically, you unscrew the bulb in your recessed light and screw in the connection which powers the fixture. The screw-in mechanism looks just like the base of the light bulb and will run the electrical power to the pendant. The only thing you will need to do is to adjust the length of the cord and cover the opening with the decorative cover…and it’s the cover that gives the secret away.

Most pendant lights have a small escutcheon that covers the hole in the ceiling. The conversion kit must have a cover large enough to cover the opening to the light fixture. That doesn’t mean it looks bad, but rather the pendant fixture is larger so that it doesn’t look unbalanced. All in all, you can quickly and inexpensively change the appearance of the room with the kit.
