How to Install Pot Lights in your Home


Give your house the make over it deserves by installing pot lights. Pot lights, or recessed lighting can really enhance your space and give it a modern, clean look. It’s not as hard as it seems, just follow the steps below on how to install pot lights!

Tools to install pot lights:

  • Drywall cutting tool
  • Safety glasses
  • Voltage tester
  • Stud finder
  • Cutting and stripping tool
  • Recessed lighting parts
  • Wire connectors
  • LED light bulbs

1. Come up with a lighting plan

Before getting started it’s important to know exactly how many lights you want, and the pattern in which you want to install them. Measure the area of your ceiling where you want to install pot lights, and mark those measurement in your drawing plan. Don’t worry you don’t need to professionally draw this out on graph paper!

2. Drill the holes

Before you start this, make sure the power for that room is completely switched off (this may require you to switch off the fuse on your breaker). Use a stud finder to make sure that the holes do not overlap a joist.
