Before installing the lights

Before you get started with anything, ensure that you turn your bathroom circuit breaker off to prevent electrical shock.

Cut out the space in the ceiling where you will be installing the light. Then cut a space nearby on the wall to put the switch for the light. Ensure that the slot fits the design of the light. Take the electrical cables that you will be using to install the lights and attach it from the power source to the hole that you created for the switch. Use a tape to fasten the end of the cable. Then take another cable and run it from the switch to the lighting slot.

Take the cover for the junction box off and connect the cables to it. Ensure that you secure the cables into the connector by tightening the screws. Remove some of the insulation on the wire ends that are connected to the junction box. Wrap the white wires together and use a wire connector to secure them. Do the same with the black wires. Put the wires into the junction box and secure it tightly. Put the junction box cover back on.
