Adding a ceiling medallion is one of the simplest ways to change the look and feel of any room in your home. Installing small ceiling medallions, up to around 24 inches in length, is a simple project for the average home handyman. You shouldn’t have any issues as long as you’re comfortable changing a light fixture. If you’re not sure about removing your fixture, consider installing a two-piece ceiling medallion.
We’d want to talk about security briefly because it’s so important. Always follow the allowed security procedures. Use hearing and eye protection. If you need to wear a dirt mask or a respirator, make sure you get the right one for the job. Last but not least, always ensure that the power is turned off when working in electrical bins.
This is perhaps the most overlooked phase in every setup, but it is also the most important. It’s the difference between a quick and environmentally friendly setup and a lot of aggravation and interruptions to run to the ironmongery store. The first step is to choose the ceiling medallion you want to utilize. If you’re using it with a light fixture or a ceiling fan, make sure the ceiling medallion’s central gap matches the fixture’s trim. You’ll need to order a ceiling medallion middle or a new fixture trim ring if they don’t match. Now is also a good time to check if the lighting fixture hardware will last long enough. Check the building code to ensure that it does not contradict with your installation plans. In the event of a struggle, always follow local building codes. NOTE: Most building rules require you to leave the electrical field unattended. This is achieved by using a ceiling medallion with a 3.5-four inch central gap. Install the ceiling medallion completely to the ceiling and cover the electrical field with either the fixture’s trim ring or a removable ceiling medallion center. Also, make certain that the existing electricity, plumbing, and structure will not interfere with your installation.
