Install your light right, the first time with these tips:
- For this project we will need a Screwdriver and Wire Cutters.
- Go to the Breaker Box and turn off the power and lights. Make sure power is cut off to the electrical junction box by using a volt-meter. CAUTION: Merely checking by flipping the light switch may not always be accurate.
- Once the power is off carefully remove the old light fixture and mounting hardware. Attach the new bracket to the existing electrical box.
- When assembling your light fixture, avoid laying it on the ground as this can cause unnecessary scratches and dents, instead assemble the fixture on its cardboard box.
- Hang the fixture before putting the glass on as this will make it easier to hang the fixture, you might want some additional help while you hang the fixture. Wait until the very end to install any finials or decorative accents to reduce the chance of dents and scratches.
- Once you determine where you want the fixture to hang, feed the wire through the bracket. Cut off any excess wire, leaving about 3" of excess. Strip off both ends of the wire. Connect the white wire to the white wire and twist them together with a wire connector. Do the same for the black wire and the same for the copper brown wire. (Caution: Don’t cut the wires until you are POSITIVE you have the right height. Chandeliers should hang about 30 inches above your table.)
- Hide the wires and attached the canopy. Put the glass on and then the light bulbs.
- Turn the power back in at the breaker box, Then turn the light back on and enjoy.
- If you run into any problems in the installation please contact your license electrician, today we installed the six light chandeliers from the Golden Origins collection.

Pendant lights are usually 9 inches or more in diameter. Some might call them chandeliers, but pendants are usually more contained and less "sprawling" than a chandelier. If you are looking for a smaller pendant, check out our mini-pendants. Pendant lights are commonly available in single or multiple pieces that ensure a distinctive appeal and alluring effect. The intensity of light required to illuminate any area can be decided by the choice of bulb used in the lighting fixture. Pendant fixtures are used with dim and natural lights to give the best possible effect to any room.

Table lamps, for instance, are popular additions to any living room. They can be used to adorn a simple chair side end table, as well as bring focal emphasis to any room that lacks one. Table lamps also provide a direct source of lighting where it is needed, particularly when you need the extra brightness for reading or sewing. Bedside lamps are also good additions to bedrooms, when you need only one specific area of the room lighted.
