Today I’m sharing how to convert recessed lighting into a pendant or chandelier, and you won’t have to hire an electrian!
I had a recessed light that shines over our master bathtub. The tub deserves more than a single, recessed light. So I started talking to my (handyman) dad about how to transform the recessed light into a chandelier.
What could have been a very complicated job requiring an electrician was made much easier thanks to a recessed light converter kit.
This kit can be found on Amazon:
Before you begin, make sure the power is off. Then, remove the plastic recessed lighting case and light bulb.
Since we’re not electricians, I’m not going to give a tutorial for electrical work. However, I will tell you it wasn’t hard, and the kit comes with detailed instructions and diagrams.
And it helps if you have a handyman for a dad and an assistant dressed like Anna from Frozen…
The kit really does make converting recessed light into a light fixture as easy as possible. Now I have a pretty chandler hanging over my tub…
Are there any rooms in your home you’d like to convert recessed lighting?
We are planning to update our bathroom completely next year. A few months ago, I put together my dream bathroom.

This chandler is a little different than one I originally envisioned, but I found this on clearance at Lowe’s and couldn’t turn it down!
Go create something!
