It is true -Track lighting can add a dramatic look to almost any room.Maybe you have a specific project that you want to show, or you\'re just looking for some depth in the room, and rail lighting will give you what you need in either way.There used to be some stories about people having some bad experiences with rail lighting, but to a large extent quirks have been solved and rail lighting is better than ever.The biggest part is that you can buy a rail lighting kit and do the project yourself so you can be on the budget.This is really an easy project to complete.When it comes to these kits, there are a lot of options to choose from: there are flexible tracks, rigid straight track, rail lights that include vertical hangs and joint segments.Choosing the right track lighting that matches your decor can be a daunting task, but in the end you\'ll love the result.Once you have made the final decision and purchased the lighting kit, you should have enough time to install it.Make sure you have basic household tools ready like ladders, screwdriversApartments and Phillips apartmentsTape and wire stripping machine.You should then be ready to continue your adventure.These kits do make the job much simpler than buying a single part, because everything is included and you can rest assured that they are all matching components.Then start the installation step from there and disconnect the power first.Then remove the existing fixture and make sure you use the ladder so you can use all the power while balancing.When you remove the old fixtures, just make sure the existing wires are neat and cut straight, and if they are not, just cut them off and make sure they are.You will then connect the wires in the rail lighting to the existing ones and make sure you never go through them.Color matching always follows the color that green matches Green, the color that black matches black, and so on.Fix the rail connector and cover plate on the junction box.You must make sure that the rail connector is tightly secured to the junction box.Slide the track onto the connector to ensure that the track is uniform and straight.Place a marker with a pencil so you can determine where the toggle bolt will go and then drill the hole where you need it.Finally, fix the track to the ceiling or the chosen position and tighten the toggle bolt.The rail lighting kit should include connectors and you can start placing fixtures once inserted.These usually enter with a 90 degree twist, at which point they should be locked in place.Put the light bulb in, you\'re done!Of course, you have to reconnect the power and you will be so happy with your work that you can hardly wait to show your friends and family what a great job you have done.
