Some of the lighting fixtures that were used by the kings rich traders and noblemen have been passed down through generations as antiques. Antique lighting fixtures are invaluable pieces of craftsmanship. They are not only the evidence of excellent craftsmanship but also witnesses of history and the rich culture of the past. They speak volumes for the owner?s taste and choice. When purchasing an antique lighting fixture it is important to check whether the piece is genuine. The years and the hands it has passed through add value to it.
Outdoor lighting fixtures are exposed to all the elements. Most of the outdoor lighting fixtures come with different protective materials to protect the bulb and remain resistant to the various elements they are exposed to. It is always advisable to buy good-quality outdoor lighting fixtures.
The second most important room to light is your bathroom. I`ve known people to use antique light fixtures in their bathroom to add more elegance. They will also include the antique design in the vanity lighting and the wall fixtures. Recessed lighting is usually saved for the basement or recreation area of your home. You can keep the lighting fixtures modern out of the way and very useful all at the same time. Another possibility for the basement or recreation area is track lighting.
In case there has never been a previously installed lighting fixture and the breaker for the fixture has not been indicated on the new breaker box one needs to determine the circuit that will power the lighting. In order to do this one needs to have somebody else turn the power switches off and on while testing the exposed wiring where the new fixture will be fitted each wire at a time using a voltage tester. Once the circuit that will power the new fixture is determined the beaker should be marked and then turned off.
