Hey malom44,


Thanks for your question, let's talk about safely replacing the lighting in your dining room and bathroom!


Luckily, we already have an abundance of lighting install know-how here online. To change them out, you'll first need to make sure that new fixture is the same weight and is secured once installed as well as making sure the power is turned off to the fixtures. Heavier fixtures may need a junction box to hold up the new light.  As long as the existing fixture is secure now, this shouldn't be an issue, but something to consider.


To change out your dining room light or any ceiling mounted light, we have a great video regarding this, click on the image below to find out more.
