curved track lighting resized 600Installing a track light fixture is an easy project; there isn’t much difference between it and a regular light fixture. You do need to consider the styling of the fixture though. Some older fixtures look like they are from the 1970’s rather than modern day. They are basically a track with large cans connected to them. More modern fixtures allow the “arms” of the fixture to curve and bend in different directions. They use smaller halogen bulbs that greatly minimize their appearance. Regardless of the style, they install in the same manner.

Connect the wires from the ceiling to the fixture wires (black to black, white to white and either green or bare copper wires together). The arms of the fixture get secured to the ceiling with screws…the location is up to you and where you want the arms to sit.

Once the arms are secured, you till secure the bulbs into the arms. The bulbs go into the light assembly and then usually twist into the arms. The power source runs along the arms and by twisting the lights into the arms, they make contact and illuminate.

From there you can direct each individual light in a different direction to accent a picture or shine in a particular area.
