  • The first step in installing an overhead shower light is finding the center of the shower on the ceiling. Next, I used a drill and small drill bit to create a pilot hole in the ceiling. I then proceeded up to my attic with my recessed overhead can lighting fixture and found the drill bit hole.

    Right now we have wiring light over shower that brings alongside 35 pictures additionally Ceiling Lights Over Kitchen Sink also with Light Over Tub furthermore Recessed Light for Bathroom Showers furthermore Shower Stalls for Recessed Lights including Lamp Over Shower moreover Shower Can Lights as well as Shower Wall Lighting moreover Light above Shower as well as Recessed Can Lights for Showers together with Surface Mount Shower Light Fixtures.

  • Well after 15 years, I finally broke down and found some time to install an overhead shower light in our shower unit. With a bright new shower, all I keep asking myself is why did I procrastinate for so long! It only took about 3 hours of work and around $30 in material.

    For material I used a recessed can light fixture that has adjustable brackets to allow it to easily be mounted to ceiling joists, and a shower overhead light fixture that mounts up into the recessed can.

    The overhead shower light has been safety enclosed for your protection.

    To replace bathroom bulbs:

    1. Always begin by turning off power at the breaker panel.
    2. Ensure that the bulb has cooled.
    3. Unscrew the form fitting safety shroud and replace burnt bulb.
    4. Re-secure safety shroud.
    5. Turn power back on.

  • I then connected the black wire associated with the recessed overhead can shower light Romex cable to the bottom side of the switch.
     
    Next I twisted together all of the white return wires using a wire nut.
     
    I then twisted the ground wires together and fastened them to the green screw on the electrical switch.
     
    Finally, I reattached the electrical switch to the electrical box and fastened the faceplate cover back on to the electrical box.
